Re: Leaks...
It's probably not too surprising that the leader of the administration that don't use computers and likes to build "stuff" like wall and buildings, (and roads to get to them) might not be too keen on internet infrastructure other than reducing regulations to let business "grow" without restraints.

Re: 5G
A complete examination of the possible reasons for the opposition of the FCC commissioners to the 5G proposal would give much insight into the controversy and the political dynamics of the industry.

Re: 5G
@John: FWIW, each commissioner of the FCC (all five of them -- all three Republicans and both Democrats) have publicly released statements opposing the proposal.

5G
The recent proposal being floated that the US take over 5G in the US has stirred a lot of controversy. Some news sources were calling it nationalization, but I don't know enough about the proposal to agree with the characterization.

There lies the problem-You can learn certain "practices", but being per se, "transactional", will be challenging especially as you have to bring people together.

Re: Leaks...
Moreover, for better or worse, this is very evidently a President who prefers to run the nation like a business -- and the corollary, which I believe we have witnessed, is that most everything is negotiable -- so long as the fundamental bottom line gets accomplished. The immigration debate is one example. Healthcare has been another. So has tax reform. It's hard to imagine that infrastructure is an exception.

Re: Leaks...
@Commisio: Personally, I think I favor a strong-dollar approach, but I didn't study economics; most of my more sophisticated economics expertise comes by way of family members and an ex-girlfriend who are all in finance.

That said, I am cognizant of the fact that there is fair debate between whether a weak-dollar approach or a strong-dollar approach is beneficial. This was an issue during the Bush 43 Administration.

Re: Leaks...
..and to add to your guidance, Joe, the Immigration Debate is one example of it as the President has now come out in support of Citizenship for an estimated 1.8 Million DACA-eligible individuals.   Although beyond the scope of our discussions, still critical for us to realize that until it is actually in writing, we should not be too concerned about it.

This Adminstration, let's just say, is interesting--you had a guy trying to talk down the Dollar (which is currently the World's Reserve Currency), another guy saying that Fossil Fuel is great...and etc:  https://avisionofthepossible.blogspot.com/2018/01/notations-from-grid-special-thursday.htm;  The devil is in the details--let's see what the details are...although they're tone-deaf to the realities at hand.
