Trump promised an ambitious infrastructure package during the first 100 days of his presidency.

One of Trump’s top advisers said Monday, however, that the president’s plan may run into roadblocks in the Republican-led Congress.

“He has to come up with a financing plan, and I think there’s going to be a little bit of a tug of war between the conservatives in the Republican Party, who are concerned about deficits, and the president, who’s concerned about jobs,” Richard LeFrak said on CNBC’s "Squawk Box."

“I think he will prevail, ultimately, because he wants to put people to work.”
