Trump visits battleground state of Wisconsin, touts manufacturing and military investment

Source: The Hill

President Trump traveled to the battleground state of Wisconsin on Thursday, touring a shipyard in Marinette and highlighting his efforts to bring back manufacturing jobs and to invest in the U.S. military.

Trump toured the Fincantieri Marinette Marine on Thursday afternoon and viewed a model of a Navy ship being built there. He used his remarks, delivered outdoors, to highlight a federal contract worth up to $5.5 billion that was awarded to the shipyard to build the U.S. Navy Frigate FFG(X).

“Under this administration, you know that American workers like you are a national treasure,” Trump said during his roughly 30-minute remarks.

Trump said that the contract would yield 9,000 additional jobs in Wisconsin through the supply chain, noting that the employees would be “so busy.”

2. Well he certainly didn't announce he was coming...

I wonder why.

There are many companies in the Fox Valley and beyond that represent the military industry.

Manufacturing is in our nature.

These are contracts that have been in place for a long time.
