A day after his unprecedented press conference on Thursday, President Donald Trump will be out of Washington D.C. to spend another weekend at Mar-A-Lago. However, on his way south, he stopped by North Charleston, South Carolina to visit Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg and tour the airline manufacturer’s facility there. Trump also helped unveil the company’s new Boeing 787 Dreamliner with a speech just after 1 p.m. ET. You can watch the event above.
Trump arrived in South Carolina at noon and met with Muilenburg before taking a tour of the Boeing facility in North Charleston. After his remarks, Trump will then tour the 787 Dreamliner before heading off to West Palm Beach, Florida.
Trump praised Boeing for the company’s investment in the Palmetto State and keeping jobs in the U.S., which was one of Trump’s main talking points during the presidential campaign. According to the company, Boeing South Carolina employs 7,500 people in the state and has invested $2 billion there. They also spend $355 million on supplies bought from other South Carolina manufacturers to build planes.
“That’s what we do in America. We dream of things, and then we build them,” Trump said during his speech.
Trump did not take any questions from the media. If he did, he might have been asked about an Associated Press report that there is a proposal to use 100,000 National Guard troops to “round up” illegal immigrants. The AP posted the memo it obtained, but White House press secretary Sean Spicer said that this was “not a White House document.”
“There is no effort to do what is potentially suggested,” Spider told the AP, adding that the original report was “100 percent not true, adding that there was “no effort at all to utilize the National Guard to round up unauthorized immigrants.”
