WASHINGTON — Tire, manufacturing and small business associations generally expressed support for the agenda presented by President Donald Trump in his Jan. 30 State of the Union address.
Commenters were especially encouraged by his $1.5 trillion infrastructure funding proposal during the speech, but also praised his positions on other issues.
Labor unions, however, claimed Mr. Trump was not keeping his campaign promises to American workers, particularly his pledge to get tough on trade.
For the transportation industry, the most important part of Mr. Trump's speech was his call for legislation to fund and direct sweeping infrastructure improvements.
"I am asking both parties to come together to give us safe, fast, reliable and modern infrastructure that our economy needs and our people deserve," the president said.
