Monday afternoon, President Donald Trump hosted representatives of companies from each of the 50 states for a Made in America Product Showcase to highlight each state's effort and commitment to American-made products.
In announcing the event, the White House released the following statement:
The Trump administration is honoring the incredible workers and companies who make "Made in America" the world standard for quality and craftsmanship. America is a nation that honors the work of gifted and skilled tradespeople, but for too long our government has forgotten the American workers. Their interests were pushed aside for global projects and their wealth was taken from their communities and shipped overseas. Under the leadership of President Trump, not only will the American worker never be forgotten, but they will be championed. President Trump has offered a new vision: the well-being of the American citizen and worker will be placed second to none.
President Trump has been fighting on behalf of American workers and families since the first day of his presidency. The president signed a "Buy American and Hire American" executive order that targets the abusive use of waivers and exceptions to undermine "Buy American" laws that promote the allocation of taxpayer funds to American companies. The order also takes steps to stop the abuse of the immigration system and protect American workers. The President is committed to preserving American jobs for American citizens.
The president has also taken steps to ensure that Americans are equipped with the tools necessary to thrive in the modern economy. He signed an Executive Order to promote and create more flexible apprenticeship programs that arm American workers with valuable skills.
President Trump has taken decisive action to free America's energy potential and create jobs in areas that need them the most. He has approved the construction of new energy pipelines, allowed for the exportation of coal, increased liquefied natural gas exports, and withdrew from the Paris Climate Accord.
Unnecessary and burdensome regulations stifle economic growth and harm American workers. The president has repeatedly taken action to remove burdensome regulations so businesses can build in America. President Trump signed an executive order stipulating that for every regulation signed into law, two regulations must be eliminated and he has begun the process of reducing permitting time for infrastructure projects from 10 years to 2. The American Action Forum estimates that President Trump has already saved the United States $60 billion through regulatory rollback.
President Trump knows that America first means putting American workers first.
