Trump Administration Terminates Near Billion-Dollar Deal For California High-Speed Rail

According to a report by Huffpost, the Trump administration announced that it had terminated an agreement with California that would have directed nearly 1 billion dollars toward the state's high-speed rail project.

On Thursday, the US Transportation Department said that it would 'deobligate' nearly one-billion dollars in funds for the project, claiming that it had 'failed to make reasonable progress.'

Shortly after it was announced, California Governor Gavin Newsom accused the Trump administration of exacting 'political retribution,' saying, "The Trump Administration’s action is illegal and a direct assault on California, our green infrastructure, and the thousands of Central Valley workers who are building this project."
