“Has to be at least $1 trillion, I’d like it to be closer to $2 trillion,” she said to reporters at a House Democratic meeting in Leesburg, Virginia. She declined to say how such an amount could be paid for, saying that was “to be discussed.” She also said she was optimistic that Democrats could work with President Donald Trump on the issue.
