Trump announces plans to revamp US infrastructure

US President Donald Trump has unveiled his plan to revamp what he has called "crumbling" US infrastructure.
Mr. Trump wants Congress to authorise $200 billion over a decade to spend on roads, highways, ports and airports.
Mr. Trump hopes the US states and private sector will stimulate another $1.3 trillion in improvements.
The plan was a key campaign promise by Mr. Trump.
For it to work, analysts say many Americans could face higher local taxes, fees and tolls.
Mr. Trump tweeted that it was time for the US to invest in itself after "stupidly spending seven trillion dollars in the Middle East".
