Amtrak

On Monday, Dec. 18, an Amtrak train derailed in Washington, causing multiple fatalities. President Trump pledged during the 2016 campaign that he would work with Congress to pass a massive infrastructure bill to upgrade and maintain our railroads and highways. Will President Trump cite the Washington train derailment while talking about infrastructure?

Will under-maintained be announced as the cause of the Washington Amtrak train derailment?
