AUSTIN, Texas – U.S. President Donald Trump said Wednesday he will sign a $2,636 billion infrastructure bill, but he won’t tell the public exactly how much.
The package would include the Keystone XL Pipeline, a $1.6 billion project that would be built by TransCanada, a major Canadian company that Trump has criticized for not paying for a portion of the project.
Trump will sign the bill at the White House in a ceremony, which would mark the start of a major trade fight between the U.K. and Canada.
Trump had initially been expected to sign the $2 billion in infrastructure bill before the U,K.
pulled out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
Instead, Trump said he will take the $4.7 billion bill to Congress.
The bill will be passed by both houses of Congress and Trump is expected to announce it later Wednesday.
Trump said at a news conference Wednesday morning that the bill is a major victory for U..
The U.N. General Assembly on Wednesday passed a resolution calling for a “world without trade barriers.”
That resolution calls for the elimination of tariffs on all goods and services from China, Japan and South Korea, and for free trade agreements with Mexico, Peru and Brazil.
It also calls for a moratorium on the export of goods from the United States and Canada, including textiles and textiles-related goods.
Trump has said the United Kingdom has lost too much U.T.O. to China.
He has also criticized Britain for not signing a free trade agreement with the European Union.
