President Donald Trump unveiled his $1.5 trillion infrastructure plan on Monday at the White House, criticizing the amount of money wasted in the Middle East before he was presdient. He estimated that the United States had spent $7 trillion in the Middle East, calling it a “mistake.”

“It’s crazy… $7 trillion in the Middle East, and the Middle East is far worse now than it was 17 years ago when they went in,” Trump said. “And not so intelligently, I have to say, went in. I’m being nice.”

As part of his plan, Trump said that the administration would accelerate the permitting process for state and local projects.
