"Before I used to say, 'You are going to have a friend, ' but now I have proven you have got a friend in the White House", Trump said to a crowd of about 400 union workers and supporters at the Richfield union training facility.

During the approximately 50-minute speech, Trump said his proposal, which includes provisions to streamline the process for obtaining federal building permits, would "transform our roads and bridges from a source of endless frustration into a source of absolutely incredible pride".

The president has kept a relatively low profile since the broadcast, except for a series of tweets about trade and his pending meeting with North Korea's leader.

President Trump proclaimed that he loves "the smell of a construction site" in a Thursday speech in OH as a part of his new push for infrastructure spending and revitalization.

"We probably have to wait until after the election, because the Democrats say, 'Don't give him any more wins, '" he said.

"Nearly 40 percent of our bridges were built before the first moon landing".

The president appeared alongside outgoing communications director Hope Hicks outside the Oval Office on Hicks' last day at the White House.

The White House on Wednesday echoed Ryan's remarks, referring to the infrastructure funds in the omnibus spending legislation as a "down payment" on the rebuilding plan and saying Congress will likely pass multiple bills to achieve Trump's goals.

President Donald Trump is making a push for his infrastructure plan in Ohio.

Trump asked Congress last month to consider using a $200 billion federal investment to leverage more than $1 trillion in state, local and private funding that would pay for the improvements to the nation's infrastructure.

President Donald Trump is bidding farewell to one of his longest-serving aides as he departs for Ohio. Hicks is leaving her post as White House communications director. "I think better than being President, I was maybe good at building".
