When David Trone met with reporters Sunday, he criticized President Donald Trump on education, the environment, infrastructure and spending for the National Institutes of Heath.

Here’s what he said:

Trone, a millionaire Democrat who lives in Potomac, is seeking the 6th Congressional District seat being vacated by Rep. John Delaney. Delaney, also a Potomac Democrat, is giving up seeking a fourth term to instead run for president in 2020. Trone, who came in second in the 2016 Democratic primary for the 8th Congressional District seat, has been eyeing a couple of races for 2018. When Delaney decided to run for president, Trone entered the race.
