President Donald Trump gave his first weekly address on Saturday. In that address, he put forth what he had been doing his first week in office and said that his administration hat “hit the ground running at a record pace.
“This administration has hit the ground running at a record pace,” told the American people. “Everybody’s talking about it. We’re doing it with speed and we’re doing it with intelligence. And we will never ever stop fighting on behalf of the American people.”
“In my first few days as your president, I’ve met with the leaders of some of our nation’s top manufacturing companies and labor unions,” he continued. “My message was clear. We want to make things in America and we want to use American workers.”
“Since my election, many companies have announced they are no longer moving jobs out of our country but are instead keeping and creating jobs right here in America,” he added. “Everyday we are fulfilling the promise we made to the American people.”
“An order to prepare for repealing and replacing Obamacare,” Trump said. “It’s about time.”
“The withdrawal from the trans-pacific partnership so that we can negotiate one-on-one deals that protect American workers,” he added. “That would have been a disastrous deal for our workers.”
“An order to begin construction of the Keystone and Dakota Access Pipelines following a renegotiation of terms with a requirement that pipelines installed in America be built with American steel and manufactured here,” Trump continued. “A directive to expedite permits for new infrastructure and new manufacturing plants.”
