Top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer's declaration Tuesday that his party wants to work with President Donald Trump on an infrastructure plan is "all show," former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay told Newsmax TV.

"He's setting up for the battle to come," DeLay, the former Texas Republican who was majority leader from 2003 to 2005, told "Newsmax Now" host Bill Tucker.

Schumer, the New York Democrat who is the Senate Minority Leader, said in an op-ed in The Washington Post that party members would back a federally funded infrastructure plan — not one paid for by state or local governments or private enterprise.

"What Trump is looking for in the infrastructure is to get rid of the regulations first that will allow you to spend more money on infrastructure," DeLay told Tucker.

"It takes 10 to 15 years from the conception of building a road to actually starting construction, and that's all because the federal interference.

"We can save almost 40 percent of the construction dollar and put it into infrastructure if we can get rid of the regulations," he said.

However, "Schumer is not going to allow him to do that without a fuss and a storm.

"So," DeLay concluded, "he's just setting it up to make people think he wants to be bipartisan.

"They're not going to give him the infrastructure bill."
