Will Donald Trump support high-speed rail in California?

One unexpected benefit of Donald Trump's election as the next President of the United States could be additional future federal funding for California's high-speed rail system.
"Trump may be friendly to it," Sierra Club California Director Kathryn Phillips told the Chronicle. "He will want to create jobs."
Last March, Trump compared the United States rail system to that of a third world country. He lauded China for quickly building a nationwide high-speed rail system. "[The Chinese] have trains that go 300 miles per hour," said Trump. "We have trains that go chug-chug-chug."
During his election night victory speech, Trump emphasized that one of his top priorities will be funding a massive infrastructure program that could include high-speed rail projects across the nation.

I could see him making the deal that he'll support the rail if they remove their sanctuary cities and start deporting. Withholding federal money to make states get in line with deportations could work.

California's high speed rail is the biggest boondoggle the state's ever tried to build. Everyone said not in my backyard so the route makes it worthless even before it's built. It should have been scrapped right there but the voters threw money at it anyway because so progressive.

He better be for it, we would have had one here in Florida if our retarded governor wasn't so fucking irrational about being "fiscally conservative".

Trump will most likely try getting trains back though, think of it this way from an economic and personal standpoint, economically it increases the ability to transfer goods across the nation more effectively and "greener" and then from a personal standpoint he'd get big bucks from Carl Icahn and earn a lot of favors for next election

Nolan Parker

It would be more cost effective and efficient to invest in airports and better airplanes, as well as abolishing of the TSA.
It would be better to fly from DC to NYC or Boston than to take a train, because there would only need to be a single location of an airport (instead of miles of track and infrastructure related to rail transport).
High-efficiency light rail should be used as local transport to-and-from airports and the cities.

Jacob Parker
Jacob Parker

This project is a case study in why this is a terrible idea. I don't want Trump to give it a dime. And there's nothing irrational about being fiscally conservative, especially when it means you don't go approving train projects that cost tens of billions of dollars.

You do realize the government would make billions more in money from the business in a country with better infrastructure. There's a direct correlation in infrastructure and GDPs you know
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infrastructure-based_development
If you want examples of why not investing in infrastructure will do look at Russia, the richest nation in the world from almost every perspective, but no real way to harness its wealth.

What's your argument against it beyond giving billions? It'd make that money back within 10 years

Jordan Morris

High speed rail sucks. First, public transit is socialism. Second, the point of the rail system is to make the central valley a suburb of silicon valley, but why should people live hundreds of miles from where they work?

True, housing in the bay area is expensive, but this can be fixed by
1) removing wetback (freeing up San Jose)
2) removing H1B pajeet (freeing up Fremont)
3) banning foreign nationals (mainly chineses) from owning real estate. These bastards will come in and buy $3mn houses in cash, sight-unseen.

Blake Mitchell

Agreed. I read somewhere, so take it with a grain of salt, that ticket prices for planes are a result of oil prices. If planes used less fuel or were at least more efficient about it, it would drive the prices down. If more planes were around to accommodate the increase in demand, prices can still be low as well.

Though, it would be interesting to upgrade our rail travel. Japan is pretty incredible with their infrastructure.

With the money spent on this pipe dream, the highway system could've been completely overhauled and the airports could've been renovated. Instead it will be used on a fucking train nobody will use that will be ready to use in 20 years. Great idea.

thinks the highway and airplanes are more effective than trains
You do realize how powerful a fucking train engine is and how effective a high speed train is for commuting.
Let's just look at commuting aspect you could live in Redding and be in San Francisco in less than an hour for a fraction of the cost it'd be at an airplane

Say we want to use trains instead of the fucking useless truckers that demolish our interstates at a rapid pace. Trains are more effective at transporting cargo over long distances, more beneficial the environment and cheaper than hiring truckers so they're a boon for businesses.

You dense niggers are so set in your line of thinking to see that spending billions for the sake of trillions isn't worth it

I'll give California's existing Amtrak lines credit for being reasonably white and middle-class. At least the Surfliner is. I used to ride it a couple years ago and it's a comfortable ride. Like an airplane cabin but more spacious.

It's useless if you have a car, though. Costs slightly more than a tank of gas and is just about the same speed. Cars also have the benefit of actually taking you places once you reach your destination, which is just about a requirement in this state.

Trump likes trains and was talking about pumping money into infrastructure.

Going back in time to primitive forms of transportation is a fool's dream. We should be figuring out how to create better individual modes of transportation, or better yet? Get the fuck out of the way and let the market find out what works best for the consumers. There is nothing the government can do that the market can't do better when it comes to the consumer lifestyles.

If you want your high speed rail and think it'll make "trillions", pitch your idea to all those venture capitalists, I'm sure they'll jump on the chance.

This is how I would like to see Public transport build in NYC.

I want many two way routes. You either are going a station that's on the outside of NYC,or you will be going in. There are no half dozen stops on each route.

The Idea is you rocket in and out of NYC, that way NYC is able to expand.

Self driving cars will pick people up so you don't have ride with niggers.

I also want a high speed rail on the Trump wall.

There would be multiple sets of tracks on the trump wall.

One would be used for cargo.

The Cargo routes would be designed to link up the busiest ports of America. The ports would be also modernized with robotics and dredged out to accommodate the largest ships.

The corporations that own and operate the railroads are big boys. I think they can handle whether or not they want to invest in better trains or infrastructure. With their own money.

Just like professional sports teams. I'm so sick of hearing about how great having the taxpayers pay for all these new stadiums is. When it's always bunch of bullshit that never is as economically effective as claimed. And the only effect it actually has is on a few sports bars and hotels near the stadiums.

Stop using taxpayer money to pay for shit for corporations who have the money to build all this stuff, and simply refuse to because they know they can con the voters and bribe the politicians. Jesus…. FUCK… We have to stop this shit!!!

The only trains I might want to fund are those on the Deportation Express Line. Because that shit is priceless.

I'm no locomotive engineer, but I would assume our current fleet of trains are built specifically to maximize efficiency regarding transporting cargo.

Aren't high speed trains basically for low load passenger trips? I'm sure electromagnetic grav trains gain a shit ton of efficiency by not actually being in contact with the rails, and by being able to utilize the grid as opposed to carrying a bunch of fuel. But can such a system support a typical cargo load?

Aren't we kind of comparing a pick-up truck to a sports car here? Just because one has more HP and better fuel economy, doesn't mean it can pull an RV behind it.

High speed trains can be used for cargo transport, but you are right in that traditional trains can do better.

A quick silhouette of how I'd envision a Trump Wall along the southern border.
Take note, the 'total height' of the silhouette is to be 210 feet, and the platform widths are 25 feet (wide enough for Amtrak and [I think] a walking platform the whole distance).
Of course, this is extremely rough, and I've already got some ideas for internal subway/rail. There is to be no Mexico-facing observation. The top is not an observation deck of any sort, and I may place 'special' rail tracks up there which are grapple-proof (curve toward Mexico) and would require special train wheels. The top rails would ONLY be emergency/service.
Underground ideas are not reflected here.
THIS IS TO BE THE MOST GLORIOUS OF WALLS IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND. THIS IS TO RIVAL THE GREAT WALL IN CHINA.

High speed rail is socialism. We voted for this bullshit rail initiative and its a huge waste of money. It's a bond (that means loan) so it's going to cost many times what we borrow to pay back. We will be indebted to (((banksters))) for a generation to pay this loan off. And high speed rail is going to help how? It's pretty cheap to fly within the state. So how cheap are these train tickets going to have to be in order to compete with airlines? And when they can't compete, how much in subsidys are we going to have to pay to keep them running? And for what? To have niggers and beaners stinking it up? And the train is going to still be slower than a plane. And we have earthquakes here - you want to be on that death trap going 200MPH when the big one hits?

This fucking train is fucking faggot tier retarded and useless. Spend the money on some desalination plants or something useful - or better yet - spend the money to deport fucking illegals. If I didn't have my whole family here, I'd be out of California.

Asher Russell
Asher Russell

The real reason why California wants high speed rail (other than as a boondoggle) is because of the NIMBY (Not In My Backyard, in this case ultra-rich liberal property owners) refusal to let high density housing be built anywhere. They refuse to accept that SF is one of the biggest cities in the country, or that the satellite suburbs are no longer sleepy towns, and rent is completely ridiculous everywhere. When developers want to build high density housing for the techfags, the NIMBYs block them because oy vey this is somehow racist as it only benefits white and asian no wait don't mention that tech yuppies that are currently paying thousands of dollars a month to live in shoeboxes. Then when the developers offer to include "affordable housing" (aka section 8), they find ways to pretend that this isn't good enough and their pet apes shouldn't settle for this, to hide the fact that they really just don't want niglets running around their neighborhoods. Or they just say "muh view, muh historic look" and vote it away. They're all a bunch of selfish, hypocritical kikes.

So if the NIMBYs won't let them build up, all these cucks can do is build out. They "need" high speed rail because they're too weak to tell the NIMBYs to fuck off and change their zoning. So the only option left is to cling to the hope that they can somehow complete a bazillion dollar high speed rail project and dump the highrises somewhere in the middle of nowhere before the state's economy implodes. And even if they built the infrastructure, they'd probably fuck it up all over again by building low density housing all along the rail and slowing it down with too many stops.

The only hope for this shithole is that it will have a major demographic shift as Trump kicks out the illegals and cuts back on H1-Bs, and maybe it will have a chance of getting some Republicans into office again. But it's just as likely that the big tech companies like Google will tank as they lose their H1-B wage slaves and the Silicon Valley bubble will pop.
