OGDEN, Utah, May 28, 2020 (Gephardt Daily) — President Donald Trump on Thursday afternoon said he would commit $64.5 million to build a bus bridge between two locations in Ogden.
Trump said in a tweet at 4:18 p.m.: “Ogden, Utah, I am committing $64.5M to build bus service between Weber State University and McKay-Dee Hospital — very important services for Utahans! @RideUTA.”
While some Twitter users applauded Trump’s decision, others pointed out that the two locations are less than one mile apart; more precisely, according to Google maps, they are 0.9 miles, or a four-minute drive from each other.
Weber State University is located at 3848 Harrison Blvd., while McKay-Dee Hospital is located at 4401 Harrison Blvd.
