KENOSHA – President Donald Trump came to Wisconsin’s tool manufacturer Snap-on Inc. Tuesday to tout manufacturing and sign an executive order as part of his “Buy American, Hire American” agenda.
Trump’s executive order was designed to clamp down on guest worker visas and require agencies to buy more goods and services from U.S. companies and workers.
As Trump closed in on the first 100 days of his presidency, he returned to Wisconsin to cement ties with a swing state that delivered him an unexpected victory in the 2016 election.
“He’s here today to highlight American manufacturing and put a spot light on Snap-on,” said the firm’s chairman and chief executive officer, Nicholas Pinchuk.
“These are great, great people and I love the workers,” Trump said, speaking at a lectern, backed by an American flag made of tools.
Trump said “no administration has accomplished more in the first 90 days,” he said, adding that he was “building on that optimism.”
Air Force One landed at Milwaukee’s Mitchell International Airport at 1:21 p.m. under cloudy skies. Trump emerged from the aircraft, pumped his fists, then walked across the tarmac to speak with assembled guests, including Gov. Scott Walker.
