Trump visits battleground state of Wisconsin, touts manufacturing and military investment
President Trump traveled to the battleground state of Wisconsin on Thursday, touring a shipyard in Marinette and highlighting his efforts to bring back manufacturing jobs and to invest in the U.S. military.
Trump toured the Fincantieri Marinette Marine on Thursday afternoon and viewed a model of a Navy ship being built there. He used his remarks, delivered outdoors, to highlight a federal contract worth up to $5.5 billion that was awarded to the shipyard to build the U.S. Navy Frigate FFG(X).
“Under this administration, you know that American workers like you are a national treasure,” Trump said during his roughly 30-minute remarks.
Trump said that the contract would yield 9,000 additional jobs in Wisconsin through the supply chain, noting that the employees would be “so busy.”
Trump touted the new ships as both a boon for Wisconsin and the U.S. Navy, noting his “colossal” investments in the U.S. military. He claimed the military had been “depleted” when he assumed office because of years of fighting “endless wars,” an ode to his effort to withdraw American troops from prolonged overseas conflicts like the war in Afghanistan.
“Through your sweat, skill and devotion, the workers of this shipyard will forge the future of the United States Navy,” Trump said. “You’ll fashion the ultimate symbol of American power and American prestige.”

As a nation, we lost a lot of jobs due to the Coronavirus crisis.
Trump can lead us back to prosperity.
It is one of the things that makes his reelection so vital.
