President Donald Trump flew to South Carolina Friday morning, to speak to employees of the Boeing plant.
Boeing is holding the event to unveil their newest aircraft, the 787-10, at their plant in North Charleston.
Founded in 1916, Boeing employees about 8,000 people in South Carolina.
Trump offered his congratulations to Boeing workers who have built the new plane, as he began a rousing, patriotic speech.
“We’re here today to celebrate American engineering and American manufacturing,” President Trump said.
“Our goal as a nation must be to rely less on imports and more on products made here in the USA.”
He said plants and jobs are coming back into the country. “As your President, I’m going to do everything I can to unleash the power of the American spirit and to put our great people back to work. This is our mantra – buy American and hire American.”
“We’re going to fight for every last American job,” he said. Our country is all about making dreams come true – although over the last eight years that hasn’t necessarily been the case. That’s what we do in America – we dream of things and then we build them. We turn dreams into reality.”
President Trump said that “jobs is the reason I’m standing here as your President,” and promised that he would not let the American people down. “I campaigned on the promise that I would bring those jobs back in America.”
“Already, American industry is roaring back,” Trump said. “We want products made by our workers, in our factories, stamped with those four magnificent words, ‘Made In The USA.’”
“On every front, we are going to work for the American people,” he promisd.
