Trump is all about the people. He made this very clear during the campaign and continues to do so as POTUS. President Trump loves to show his appreciation to the people and members of the military whenever he can.
Today he did both! Before sharing some words at Snap On tools in Wisconsin, Trump took to the crowd and began shaking hands and speaking with the people in a more local setting. One mother even had the surprise of Trump asking to hold her baby! Grandpa Trump just couldn’t help himself!
President Donald J. Trump greets the crowd in Wisconsin ahead of his remarks at the tool and manufacturing service company Snap-on. The president will also sign a “Buy American, Hire American” executive order.
President Donald Trump will sign an executive order Tuesday aimed at furthering his “Buy American, Hire American” agenda, while visiting the headquarters of tool and manufacturing service company Snap-on (SNA) in Kenosha, Wis.
The order will be separated into two sections, Buy American and Hire American. Under the “Buy American” portion, the administration will push forward reforms dealing with the immigration system—particularly the H-1B visa program—which then-candidate Trump promised to “end forever” on the campaign trail.
However, President Trump has softened his tone and the administration will instead attempt to rectify abuses of laws governing entry of all workers from abroad, according to senior administration officials. These officials said Monday afternoon that weak enforcement and loopholes relating to temporary employment laws for foreign workers allow them to come work in the country regardless of merit or skill. The administration contends this ultimately leads to less-skilled H-1B workers being paid less and consequently undercutting the domestic workforce.
The goal of this portion of the order is to create higher wages and higher employment rates for workers in the United States, the White House officials said. It will be enforced by the Department of Labor, the Department of State, the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice.
