The president continued his verbal assault on Democratic lawmakers for continuing to oppose the proposed American Health Care Act - the GOP's effort in the Senate to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.
Trump says "we will never have outside forces telling us what to do and how to do it" while he's president.
In his speech, Trump announced that he would not afford the country the opportunity to become a "museum of former glory", ensuring that extensive infrastructure projects would be supported.
"The Chamber and the business community look forward to engaging with the White House and with Congress to develop and implement a long-term plan that will bring our nation's infrastructure up to speed and spur economic growth", said Ed Mortimer, the Chamber's executive director for transportation infrastructure.
He was joined by families from OH and Kentucky he described as "victims of the Obamacare catastrophe".
"We're here today to talk about rebuilding our nation's infrastructure".
"Every single thing is obstruction", the president continued, adding that "if I was in that party, I would not do it that way".
The speech comes a day before former FBI Director James Comey is scheduled to testify in front of Congress and as the White House faces new allegations about possible efforts by the president to influence the investigation into possible ties between his campaign and Russian Federation.
Trump said that as he campaigned across the country a year ago, people often asked him why the US was spending money to rebuild other countries when the roads and bridges they travel on needed rebuilding, too. He spoke before a crowd at Rivertowne Marina.

The White House has yet to detail specifics of the plan, but hopes to finance improvements using public-private partnerships.
Trump used the fellow Republican's state as backdrop on Wednesday to push the House bill. Democratic politicians regularly use stories of people who are facing a hard situation to help drive public opinion to drive the change that they desire.
Democrats' obstructionist behavior cost them the House, the Senate and the White House, Trump claimed. I'd be doing positive things. They want to see us all come together.
Trump mentioned that people around the country are anxious there are bridges "so unsafe they are afraid they are going to fall down".
With his second critical tweet of Sadiq Khan's response to an ISIS van and knife attack, Trump drove another wedge between the United States and an ally with which American long has had a "special relationship". "It got to the point where I probably absorbed $100,000 worth of increases", he said. At the Rivertowne Marina, Trump was joined by several Cabinet secretaries as well as two NY real estate moguls, Richard LeFrak and Steven Roth, whom Trump had previously named to lead an infrastructure council to monitor progress.
The looming Comey testimony has all but stalled Trump's legislative agenda, but the White House has tried to soldier on during what is will likely be a bruising week with a focus on infrastructure.
'They've had their lives completely upended by the disaster known as Obamacare, ' Trump proclaimed.
