Billionaire investor Bill Ackman suggested that President Donald Trump put Americans back to work with the “biggest infrastructure program of all time.”

In a series of tweets directed at the president, Ackman advocated for the construction of roads, bridges and tunnels. Such outdoor work would allow for social distancing and could be financed with low long-term interest rates, Ackman wrote. He also suggested building costs would be lower due to “lower commodity prices and less competition for labor.”
