Trump: Capitol Dome Restoration Behind Schedule
“Now I say, do it simpler. Get them to work faster."

Presidential hopeful Donald Trump suggested Monday night that he knows something the rest of us don’t about the Capitol Dome restoration project — it’s behind schedule.

Citing “a construction firm that’s involved in the job, ” Trump claimed workers don’t have enough time to finish the project before the 2017 presidential inauguration. “So they’re going to take all of the scaffolding down. Pay millions of dollars to do that — millions. And then after the inauguration they’re going to put it back up again, and pay millions of dollars more.”
