Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., urged President Donald Trump to work with Democrats on a $1 trillion infrastructure bill.

Schumer told USA Today in a Facebook Live broadcast that he is unveiling a $1 trillion infrastructure bill on Tuesday that he hopes Trump will embrace.

"We hope so," Schumer said. "It's a challenge to the president. He ran on a campaign of a trillion dollar infrastructure bill. We Democrats have always believed in this. We've been stymied by Republicans in the Senate over-and-over-again.

"But this bill would help our ailing roads and bridges and highways. It would help lay broadband to parts of America that don't have it. It would help our veterans' hospitals and facilities which need to be redone. And it would create 15 million good paying jobs."

According to The New York Times, the plan dedicates $180 billion to rail and bus systems, $65 billion to ports, airports and waterways, $110 billion for water and sewer systems, $100 billion for energy infrastructure and $20 billion for public and tribal lands.

He said money for the plan would come out of the Treasury.
