President Trump will meet Gov. Andrew Cuomo this weekend in New Jersey to discuss important Big Apple infrastructure projects like the Second Avenue Subway.
The president will arrive in Bedminster on Thursday evening where he is expected to spend the weekend at his Trump National Golf Club and will meet the governor with whom he has had a strained relationship for in-person talks.
“We’ll be taking to Governor Cuomo,” Trump told reporters at the White House South Lawn. “They’re looking to do a project, the Second Avenue Subway, as you know.”
“We’re talking about that. We’re also talking about the tram from the airport to a certain location, so we’ll be talking to him, yes,” he continued, confirming talks had been scheduled.
“I’ve been driving over those boards for many years, for decades,” he said of the temporary road coverings over the underground excavation and construction work.
The project has a $6 billion price tag — making it the most expensive underground train line in history. When finished, it will connect Harlem to Lower Manhattan and create 16 new stations.
The cost of the controversial LaGuardia Airport AirTrain project is also now estimated to be roughly $2 billion.
