President Trump's re-election campaign is showcasing the action he has taken to boost the manufacturing sector, highlighting in a new video his executive orders to "Buy American, Hire American," and expand apprenticeships.
Titled "Promises Made, Promises Kept," the video from Donald J. Trump for President, Inc., features employees and apprentices working at Medalcraft Mint, Inc., in Green Bay, Wisc., which manufactures custom challenge coins.
The company makes a bronze medallion with Trump's portrait on one side and an American flag with the words "Make America Great Again" on the other, which are for sale for $45 at the Trump campaign's website.
"I'll be signing an executive order to expand apprenticeships and vocational training to help all Americans find a rewarding career, earn a real living, and support themselves and their families, and love going to work in the morning," Trump says in a clip at the start of the video. "Not only will our apprenticeships transform their lives, but they will also transform our lives in the truest sense."
The video from the president's re-election campaign features one apprentice, two employees and the CEO of Medalcraft Mint.
"Coming to work every day knowing I'm making the medals for President Trump gives me a great sense of pride," Nicole Engstrom, a polisher at Medalcraft Mint, says in the video. "Thank you so much President Trump, every day, for what you do for our country."
Included in the video are cameos of Lara Trump, the president's daughter-in-law and a senior adviser to Trump's re-election campaign.
"During the campaign, then-candidate Donald Trump promised to bring back American manufacturing jobs," Lara Trump said in a statement. "President Trump is keeping that promise. … Thanks to President Trump's commitment to the forgotten men and women of America, and his leadership to improve our economy and create millions of new jobs, more and more Americans such as the artisans at Medalcraft have become very optimistic about the future for their families and for our country."
Trump signed the "Buy American, Hire American" executive order in April, which tightened the rules around high-skilled foreign worker visa programs and called on government agencies to "more narrowly construe" provisions of federal contracting rules.
In June, the president signed another executive order expanding apprenticeships and vocational training.
