Scenes From The White House Made in America Showcase

Posted: Jul 17, 2017 4:30 PM

The White House is hosting a "Made in America" showcase today on the South Lawn where companies from all 50 states are proudly exhibiting their products. 

Monday afternoon President Trump took a tour of the displays, where he tried on a Stetson cowboy hat and climbed into a firetruck with Vice President Mike Pence.

"Where's the fire?" Trump said according to the pool report. "I'll put it out."

Marine One, which was built in Connecticut, was sitting on the lawn for the event.

The President made brief remarks about the importance of deregulation and tax reform in order to allow business to grow and manufacture in the United States. 

"We're gonna stand up for our companies and maybe most importantly for our workers," Trump said. "American workers, farmers and innovators are really the best in the world."

"Every member of my administration shares the same goal, to provide a level playing field for American workers," he continued.

Made in America is the White House theme of the week and will remain the focus in coming days.
