Trump to visit ‘Bader’ land project in Nebraska

President Donald Trump is expected to visit a land project owned by the United States Postal Service in Nebraska this week, a White House official said Friday.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the visit publicly, did not offer details on what Trump would see.

Trump is expected Wednesday to visit the Bader land project at a point known as the “Pulaski Pass,” where construction on a bridge over the Potomac River is already underway.

The Bader lands project, which has been described by the Postal Service as “a vital infrastructure project that provides critical public transportation, a vital postal service, and provides jobs for thousands of people across the country,” was the subject of a scathing report released in December by the Office of Inspector General.

The OIG found that the Postal Services had used taxpayer dollars to purchase land at the site and to pay for improvements to the post office in order to improve its operations.

The agency also found that, at least in the early 2000s, it used $100 million in federal aid to buy land near the site, with the intent of using it to build the Badger land project.

The inspector general also found the agency had failed to adequately respond to requests for information, including from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the OIG said.

The Postal Service did not respond to multiple requests for comment from The Hill on Friday.
