After running on an election platform of improving and investing into America's transport infrastructure, Trump is now proposing to kill long distance Amtrak trains and replace them with buses, even though Amtrak already subsidies those routes with profits from the NEC and Keystone Corridor.

Isn't this just a total slap in the face for his electorate? Much of rural America is only connected to major cities by these vital train routes, and these areas voted for Trump. And now he's fucking them up?
