Taking questions at a press event on Wednesday, House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Democrats want to work with President Donald Trump on at least two issues.

Conversations with Trump have revealed that building infrastructure and lowering prescription drug costs are two goals that she and the president share -  and “We have to take him at his word” - Pelosi said:

“But, all the building infrastructure, the President has said in every conversation I’ve had with him, as recently as St. Patrick’s Day or when we observed St. Patrick’s Day last Thursday that he wants to get that done.

“So, we have to take him at his word that he does want to get that done. And he also wants to lower the cost of prescription drugs, so those are two areas that are our priorities that he says he wants to do.”

“We want to try to find common ground,” Speaker Pelosi said, citing infrastructure priorities, like surface transportation:

“So, we shall see, but we want to try to find common ground. This is so important for security – safety. It’s important for quality of life. It’s important for broadband as well as surface transportation, water projects and the rest. It’s important to our country and I hope that the President will honor the commitment that he has made to do infrastructure legislation. We’ll see.”
