Remarks by President Trump at the 3rd Annual Made in America Product Showcase

Issued on: July 15, 2019

South Lawn

12:32 P.M. EDT

(“Hail to the Chief” is played.)

THE PRESIDENT: That sounds nice, doesn’t it? Beautiful. Thank you very much. And thank you very much. Terrific talent.

Please sit down. Please.

I want welcome everyone to the White House. We are very excited to be hosting our third annual Made in America Showcase. It’s all about “Made in America.” (Applause.) We just started this, and this is my third already. And I just went around and saw these incredible companies that make everything from the THAAD missiles to beautiful boats. And I said, “How would that boat do against the THAAD missile?” And it wasn’t a good answer. (Laughter.) The boat is going to have a little problem, but that’s okay.

But I just want to say the engineering — inside, as you know, we have incredible things. I’m going in right now to look. I saw some of it yesterday. Incredible things. Made in the USA.

We’re here today to celebrate and support the most incredible products in the world. And this is just a very representative sampling, because we’re making more product here than we ever have.

Our steel industry is doing very well. We put massive tariffs on dumped steel. They were dumping steel. Our steel industry was going out of business. If I hadn’t been elected, you would have no steel industry right now. It would be gone. And we have not only steel, energy, and so many other things. We have — we’re vibrant. We have the hottest economy anywhere on Earth right now.

Japan and other countries are at my absolute request, order — call it whatever you want. They’re sending tremendous and building tremendous plants now in the United States. We hadn’t had auto plants built in many, many years. And now we’re having many in Michigan, in Ohio, in Pennsylvania, in Florida, in North Carolina, South Carolina. Many, many plants are being built and being expanded. And that was not happening. Our auto companies and many companies were leaving the United States. Now they’re staying. They have a big disincentive to leave. We’re not happy when they leave. When they leave, it’s not the same.

Q But they’re American citizens. What do you make of the fact that they’re American citizens?

THE PRESIDENT: But they have to love — they have to love our country. They’re Congress people. And I never used any names. But these are people —

Q Are you okay with people thinking your tweets are racist, Mr. President?

THE PRESIDENT: Quiet. Quiet. Quiet. Quiet.

Q Mr. President, are you okay with people thinking your tweets are racist, sir?


Q I’m asking a question, sir.

THE PRESIDENT: These are people that if they don’t like it here, they can leave. And I’d be — I don’t know who’s going to miss them, but I guess some people will. One of them is polling — one of them is polling at 8 — one of them is polling at 8 percent. (Applause.) One of them is polling at 8 percent.

So when — when I hear people speaking about how wonderful al Qaeda is, when I hear people talking about “some people” — “some” people with the World Trade Center — “some people”? No, not “some people.” Much more than “some people.”

When I hear the statements that they’ve made — and in one case, you have somebody that comes from Somalia, which is a failed government, a failed state — who left Somalia, who ultimately came here, and now is a Congresswoman who’s never happy; says horrible things about Israel. Hates Israel. Hates Jews. Hates Jews. It’s very simple.

... And I’m really good at this stuff; I know what I’m talking about.

1. Does he really buy his own BS ?

You have to wonder. Or is this missing the snark tag.
