President Donald J. Trump signs an executive order on Monday that will require products "Made in America" to be made with more American components, if these products are to be used by the U.S. government.

Speaking at the annual White House “Made in America” showcase on Monday, President Donald Trump says

 [Donald Trump, U.S. President]:

"We're very excited to be hosting our third annual Made in America showcase. It's all about Made in America. We just started this and this is my third already. And I just went around and saw these incredible companies that make everything from the THAAD (terminal high altitude area defense) missiles to beautiful boats. And I said 'How would that boat do against the THAAD missile?' and it wasn't a good answer. The boat's going to have a little problem but that's okay."

President Trump plans to boost the percentage of American components in made in U.S. products.

"Today I'm pleased to announce that we will begin our Buy American requirements but even stronger. Currently a product can be 50 percent foreign and it still counts as American made. Figure that one out. In just a few moments, I will sign an executive order that will eventually raise these standards up to 75 percent and above so that domestic goods will have to have 75 percent American and 95 percent for things, such as iron and steel."

The U.S. president says that nobody stands up for the worker like he has stood up for the worker. Manufacturers from all U.S. states are represented.

[Donald Trump, U.S. President]:

"We're here today to celebrate and support the most incredible products in the world. And this is just a very representative sampling because we're making more products here than we ever have. Joining us today are manufacturers from all 50 states and they are terrific talents, terrific craftsmen, terrific business people."

During the annual White House “Made in America” showcase, President Trump also discusses steps the administration is taking to boost the U.S. manufacturing industry.

[Donald Trump, U.S. President]:

"The philosophy of my administration is simple, if we can build it, grow it or make it in the United States we will. When we choose American made something truly wonderful happens our communities thrive and flourish. Our neighborhoods bustle with commerce, our children dream bigger and bolder and the bonds of loyalty that unite us as citizens become closer richer and deeper than ever before. That's how we carry on the flaming torch of Americanism."

The “Made in America” platform is one of President Trump’s strategies to Make America Great Again.
