"To build a strong economy for our future, we must start by building strong infrastructure today," the Democratic front-runner said at a campaign event in Boston, according to CBS News.

Republicans have called the plan irresponsible, noting that Clinton has now proposed more than $1 trillion in new spending.

“With Hillary Clinton’s spending binge already at a trillion dollars and counting, it’s clear she wants to treat Americans’ tax dollars like every day is Black Friday with no plan to pay the bill,” Republican National Committee (RNC) spokesman Michael Short said in a statement on Sunday.
