Trump talks military, but mostly jobs in visit to Boeing South Carolina
As President Donald Trump visited Boeing South Carolina in North Charleston, Friday, there were some excited South Carolinians.
“This may be the single best day in the history of South Carolina, and we have a great and distinguished history,” Gov. Henry McMaster, said to the crowd at Boeing.
There were also some using the Trump visit as an opportunity. A small protest was staged outside of the Boeing facility.
Trump himself previewed the visit in a Tweet, early morning Friday, before he got to Charleston.
“Going to Charleston, South Carolina, in order to spend time with Boeing and talk jobs!” Trump tweeted from his @realdonaldtrump account. “Look forward to it.”
Once he arrived and began to speak, Trump said:
“I love South Carolina. I love it.” Trump also recollected his GOP Primary and General Election wins in the Palmetto State.
It was supposed to be tough to win- we won in a landslide. Trump also thanked McMaster.
Standing in front of Boeing’s newly unveiled Dreamliner 787-10, Trump praised Boeing, pledged to rebuild the U.S. military and increase the number of jobs in the country.
“We are going to put America first.”
“Buy America, hire America.”
Trump said South Carolina has a long, proud tradition of support for the military.
He talked about US Soldiers having the tools “to get the job done.” And vowed that soldiers will be equipped.
Trump advocated Peace through strength. And he said Boeing ( a military contractor) will be a big part of it.
“My focus has been all about jobs,” Trump said. And he said he is working to bring jobs back into America.
Trump said corporations will not be allowed take jobs out of the country, then sell products back to us.
He will massively reduce regulations, he said.
Trump said he will enforce trade rules and stop foreign cheating.
We want products made by our workers, he said.
Hiring is already surging, Trump said and the business climate has already changed.
He also said we don’t have a level playing field, but we will again soon.
America is going to start winning again, Trump said.
He said the communities that have been forgotten will be “forgotten no longer.”
Trump finished by saying God bless South Carolina and God bless Boeing.
Trump then made his way through a crowd, shaking hands as the Stars and stripes forever played in the background.
