WATCH: Sens Trump to talk infrastructure and common ground in State of the Union 

President Trump should highlight infrastructure and areas of common ground in his State of the Union address on Tuesday, several senators tell The Hill. 
 
Sen. Amy KlobucharAmy Jean KlobucharGOP in striking distance to retake Franken seat Warner: 'overwhelming majority' of Republicans would back social media regulations Republicans block Democratic bid to subpoena Kavanaugh documents MORE (D-Minn.) “hopes [Trump] emphasizes” areas of potential “common ground — there are still some areas,” she says, “transportation infrastructure … bringing down the prices of prescriptions drugs … doing something about opiates … and then of course, his recent comment that he wants to do something to give the ‘Dreamers’ a path to citizenship, I thought was somewhat hopeful.” 
 
Klobuchar made those comments on camera before the president discussed his outline for protecting recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, a plan that Democrats have widely panned.

Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) looks forward to hearing Trump discuss future “successes” like “infrastructure … and I think worker retraining is another huge part of what the agenda ought to be next year because even with regard to infrastructure, we simply don’t have the workforce available right now to undertake the kind of massive new infrastructure push that we're talking about so, we've got to figure out how to get more people into the workforce with the training they need to meet the jobs that are out there.”
