"As we rebuild our industries, it is also time to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure," the president said.

"I am asking both parties to come together to give us safe, fast, reliable and modern infrastructure that our economy needs and our people deserve," he added. "Tonight, I am calling on the Congress to produce a bill that generates at least $1.5 trillion for the new infrastructure investment we need."

On Thursday, the president was in West Virginia, where he spoke to Republican lawmakers attending a GOP retreat at The Greenbrier resort.
