When the American people chose Donald Trump, they knew they were electing a man who is willing to speak his mind.
In 2012, Mitt Romney was mocked for his “binders full of women” comment, but now, the Republican Party is dealing with a new leader that knows what to do with useless binders.
During a recent speech at the Transportation Department on Friday, where Trump was pushing his $1 billion infrastructure plan, Trump threw a binder full of regulations on the ground in order to show what he truly thought about them.
“They spent $29 million for an environmental report weighing 70 pounds and costing $24,000 per page,” Trump told his audience. “And I said, ‘Do me a favor, I’m going to make a speech in a little while. Do you mind if I take that and show it?’” he continued. “So I’m going to show it.”
“Here’s another one,” he said, as the crowd laughed. “They don’t even know what this is.”
“So they spent millions and millions of dollars — when I said, ‘how long has this short roadway been talked about?’ the gentleman said, ‘Well, if you say 20 years, you’re safe.’”

Conservative Tribune reports:
The speech was part of a weeklong push dubbed “Infrastructure Week” by the administration in which the president pushed for a $1 trillion infrastructure package.
Earlier in the week, according to Fox News, Trump said during a speech in Cincinnati that Americans “deserve the best infrastructure anywhere in the world.”
However, red tape can definitely get in the way of that, as this object lesson seems to have proved. Whether or not the Trump administration has the ability to cut through that and convince both parties of the necessity of his infrastructure program remains to be seen.
This is amazing and exactly why we elected Trump. Our country is plagued with too many regulations and more often than not these regulations hurt business and stifle innovation.
With Trump, we can guarantee that a large portion of these regulations will be rolled back in favor of promoting innovation and growth and this is something that all Americans can get behind.
