Trump Touts Jobs and Trade, But Policy Details Still Missing: AAM Statement

Citing his promise to "Buy American and hire American," President Donald Trump committed to invest $1 trillion in infrastructure, reform tax codes, and rebalance trade deals during his first address to a Joint Session of Congress Tuesday night.

Said Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) President Scott Paul:

"I was pleased that the President renewed his calls for infrastructure investments, Buy America policies, tax reform, and a new approach to trade.

"While always nice to hear, shout-outs to manufacturing are nothing new in a presidential address. The policy details matter. American workers deserve more than rhetoric. It’s time to get to work.”
