The White House recently announced plans for a three-week campaign showcasing the greatness and opportunities that are unique to our country.
The campaign will kick off on July 17 with a “Made in America” themed week, in which United States jobs and products will be promoted, according to The Washington Post.
Crafts and other items created in each of the 50 states will be on display at a showcase hosted by the White House on Monday, with the president issuing a declaration Wednesday on the importance of manufacturing products in the U.S.
Helen Ferré, the White House director of media affairs, told reporters that during the first week of the campaign, the Trump administration would honor “the amazing American workers and companies who have products that are made in America.”
“For too long our government has forgotten the American worker. Their interests were pushed aside for global projects and their wealth was taken from the communities and shipped overseas,” Ferré said, according to ABC News. “Under the leadership of President Donald Trump, not only will the American worker never be forgotten, but they will be championed.”
In celebration of American-made products, Trump also plans to travel to Newport News, Virginia where a new aircraft carrier, the USS Gerald R. Ford, will be commissioned on July 22.
The planned week long campaign is further evidence of the president’s dedication to American jobs and workers and his pledge to bring manufacturing jobs back to the U.S., as well as renegotiating trade deals that have been harmful to our country’s businesses.
Following “Made in America” week, the White House has plans to host “American Heroes” week, followed by “American Dream” week.
Three weeks of celebrating America, its opportunities and heroes is certainly a nice change of pace from the former administration, which continuously found ways to criticize America and downplay its achievements.
