This is “Made in America” Week
Over the next 3 weeks The Trump Administration will hold events pertaining to 3 Presidential themes, as follows:
- Made in America
- American Heroes
- American Dreams
This the 1st week will include at least 2 events celebrating US-made products, including a “product showcase” of items made in all 50 States.
Made in America week kicks off Monday, with the President championing companies that build products in the US.
President Trump has invited firms from all 50 States to show their domestically produced products at the White House.
Wednesday, President Trump plans to call on US companies to make more of their products at home.
He also will to travel to Virginia at the weekend for the commissioning of the USS Gerald R. Ford aircraft carrier.
“For too long our government has forgotten the American worker,” White House spokeswoman Helen Aguirre Ferré told reporters Sunday. Those workers, she said, will now be “championed” by Trump.
The theme weeks will continue throughout the month, with events planned to highlight “American Heroes” and the “American Dream”.
While Trump is holding the theme-week events, investors will be watching to see whether he proceeds with efforts to impose tariffs or quotas on steel imports.
The Trump Administration has ordered a review under a Cold War-era trade law that allows the president to impose restrictions on imports that are found to threaten national security.
“Steel is a big problem,” President Trump told reporters last week. “They’re dumping steel and destroying our steel industry, they’ve been doing it for decades, and I’m stopping it.”
US Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross is leading the investigation.
Let’s see of the media refocuses on the President’s economic agenda, and not the Russia hoax story.
Have a terrific week.
