WASHINGTON - When President Donald Trump unveils his plan to beef up the nation's infrastructure plan next month, it will include a crater-sized hole. The trust fund that pays for most federal highway and transit aid is forecast to go broke in about three years unless the government significantly scales back its transportation spending or comes up with more money. But Trump's infrastructure plan is silent on the looming problem, an administration official familiar with the plan told the Associated Press. The official wasn't authorized to speak publicly about the plan and spoke on condition of anonymity. Fulfilling a campaign promise, Trump's plan proposes to generate $1 trillion in infrastructure spending over 10 years.
