Regarding the “$1 trillion claim”, it appears to depend on who you ask, but this article has multiple sources that have the number in the vicinity of or even exceeding the $1 trillion claim.

Note that the FactCheck.org information is from 2008.

Regarding the single currency and superhighway, it’s entirely possible that it is a myth, but we can be sure that as more information is revealed, we will get a better picture. Take this 2005 cable which was released by Wikileaks this year.

Not exactly a slam dunk, but it does provide some insight.
