Marillyn Hewson Statement on Meeting with President Trump on U.S. Manufacturing
“I welcomed the opportunity to meet today with President Trump and industry leaders to discuss ways we can grow manufacturing jobs in the United States. I was encouraged by the President’s commitment to reduce barriers to job creation, including targeted regulatory reform and long term budget planning.
“We support the President’s efforts to end the defense sequester, so that our military can invest in the equipment and technology they need to defend our nation and protect our interests. Ending these budget restrictions will allow industry to plan, invest and hire for the long term.
“I look forward to continuing to work with President Trump and his team on these important issues.”
Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer
