Trump to travel to Wisconsin Tuesday
MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The Wisconsin-based company hosting President Donald Trump said Monday that his visit will provide a welcome opportunity to highlight the importance of manufacturing to the nation's future.
Trump won Wisconsin in the 2016 presidential election by about 22,000 votes over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Tool manufacturer Snap-on said in a statement Monday that Trump's visit is "an encouraging development in highlighting the essential nature of American manufacturing to our nation's future".
Manufacturing jobs are one of the largest drivers of Wisconsin's economy, accounting for about 16 percent of the state's total workforce.
Trump will sign the order, dubbed Buy American, Hire American, at the headquarters of tool manufacturer Snap-on Inc. According to its website the company has eight manufacturing sites in North America and employs 11,000 people worldwide.
Trump says the order sends a "powerful signal to the world" that the USA will defend its workers, protect their jobs and put America first.
