President Trump campaigned heavily on the idea of putting "America first" in nearly all that we do economically. On Tuesday, President Trump took a major step to fulfilling that promise.
In an executive order that is being nicknamed "Buy American, Hire American", President Trump is putting American workers first. The executive order restricts companies from hiring outside workers like they could under the Obama administration. It also requires U.S. government agencies to buy American products to do the jobs.
Many people have been critical of President Trump for these issues. Some critics have pointed out all the instances where President Trump used foreign labor or foreign products to build his businesses or products. That is exactly why the president has issued this statement!
President Trump knows the loopholes of American government better than anyone as he climbed the ladder to success as a businessman. He played by the rules while making tremendous profits for himself. However, he realizes that while these regulations helped him, they weren't the best for America.
Now, President Trump wishes to change those rules to truly help the American economy grow stronger and to make more favorable conditions for the American worker.
