President Trump on Tuesday vowed to repair the country using American products and construction workers in a speech to builders.
“Together, we are going to rebuild our nation,” Trump said at the North America’s Building Trades Union (NABTU) legislative conference. “America’s labor leaders will always find an open door with Donald Trump.”
Trump opened up his remarks at the Washington Hilton by shouting out different construction-related jobs, from pipe fitters and plumbers to electricians and cement masons.
“You’re the backbone of America,” Trump said to cheers. “With the talent in this room, we can build any city, any time, and better than anyone.”
Trump, whose business career revolved around real estate and building projects, also joked that he knew how much concrete and rebar could be laid down in a day.
“We’re a nation of builders, and it was about time we had a builder in the White House,” Trump said.
