Thursday

CBS News — On Thursday President spoke in both Iowa and Illinois to praise his economic polices. CBS news reports he saved “his most energetic remarks for a recently reopened U.S. Steel facility in Granite City, Illinois.”

Some quoted highlights from Granite City.

“If you don’t have steel, you don’t have a country.”

“I look at the faces of you people. I could be one of you.”

Before he spoke in Illinois, President Trump held a roundtable discussion with the agriculture industry in Dubuque, Iowa.

During the roundtable discussion he praised “leaders at the table, talking about ethanol, and blasting Sen. John McCain’s health care vote last year, without naming him. Mr. Trump said “one man” decided “late in the evening” to break with the party. “Isn’t that wonderful?” Mr. Trump said.”


During his speech in Illinois the President is reported as saying, “We lost $817 billion a year, over the last number of years in trade. In other words, if we didn’t trade, we’d save a hell of a lot of money.” (the remark comes in the posted video above at around the 14:00 minute mark)
