President Trump Continues Made In The USA With Remarks About New Pharmaceutical Glass Operations…

Earlier today President Trump celebrated a new innovative product that will be made in the U.S.A.  Merck, Pfizer, and Corning have developed a glass product for the pharmaceutical industry that prevents breakage, increases safety and will be made exclusively in the U.S.

[Transcript] 3:05 P.M. EDT – THE PRESIDENT: Well, thank you very much. Very exciting — and exciting times at the White House. A lot of things happening that are so great for our country. I want to welcome Made in America Week. This is what we call Made in America –right here, and they’re all here. Some of the great business minds, businesses geniuses. Congratulations fellas, that’s not a bad statement. (Laughter.)

President Trump applies almost 1,000 pounds of pressure during demonstration of the strength of new glass product.

But they’re right here with us, and I’ll tell you it’s an honor to have them. We’re continuing our celebration of American manufacturing, and it has been something very important to us — Made in the USA, Made in America — and our tribute to the skill, dedication, and grit of the American worker. We’re showcasing products from all around the country that are stamped with the beautiful letters “Made in the USA.”

Today I’m proud to welcome three more great companies — we’ve had quite a few wonderful companies — a little smaller generally speaking than yours, but every company is smaller than yours when you get right down to it to it — to the White House for really a major announcement which you’ll be hearing: Merck, Pfizer, and Corning.

These three companies are announcing that pharmaceutical glass packaging will now be made in America. That’s a big step. That’s a big statement. We’re very proud of that. Thank you very much, by the way. And I know they wouldn’t have done it under another administration. I feel confident.

These companies have formed a groundbreaking partnership to create thousands of American manufacturing jobs with this innovative new product. It’s an incredible product. Merck, Pfizer, and Corning are coming together to create an advanced pharmaceutical glass packaging operations, which include an immediate investment of at least $500 million and the creation of nearly 1,000 new jobs — and quickly.

The initial investment will be spread across facilities in New York, New Jersey, and a new manufacturing plant in southeast of the United States — they’re looking right now — which Corning will be announcing in the coming months, and there’s some pretty good competition. I know they’re going to make a great deal.

Eventually, the companies here today expect a total investment in this initiative to reach at least $4 billion and create some 4,000 American jobs. And it’s very innovative on top of it.

This initiative will bring a key industry to our shores that for too long has been dominated by foreign countries. We’re moving more and more companies back into the United States, and they’re doing more and more of these products. And that would have been unheard of even a couple of years ago.

These companies have achieved a breakthrough in pharmaceutical glass technology that will be used to store and deliver injectable drugs and vials and cartridges. This technology is not only great for American jobs and manufacturing, it’s great for patients who now will have access to safer medicines and vaccines.

It’s also great for the healthcare workers who can administer the drugs — makes it much, much safer for them and safely without having any problems and worrying about vial-breaking, which, as I understand, is a tremendous problem that we’re not going to have anymore.

I know that Secretary Price and the FDA are committed to working with innovative companies like these. We have tremendous excitement going on at the FDA. Amazing things are happening there, and I think we’re going to be announcing some of them over the next two months. We’re going to be streamlining, as we have in other industries, regulations so that advancements can reach patients quickly. You’re going to see a big streamlining — I think you already have. To a large extent, you already have. Very proud of that.

I especially want to thank Ken Frazier, Ian Read, and Wendell Weeks — so three of the great, great leaders of business in this country — along with all the great people at Merck, Pfizer, and Corning for believing in America and the American workers. This announcement reflects a central theme of my administration that when we invest in America, it’s a win for our companies, our workers, and our nation as a whole.

Every day, we are fighting to bring back our jobs, to restore our industry, and to put America first or, as you’ve heard, make America great again. That’s exactly what we’re doing. Some people have heard that expression. It’s been fairly well-used, I think.

I want to thank you all for being here, and I want to thank you for your dedication to Made in America. Really appreciate it very much, and I’d like to have you say a few words. Come on up. Thank you. (Applause.)

        Stop in at Hammondsport, NY to the Glenn Curtiss Museum–inventor of the motorcycle and many, many airplane innovations. He was actually the first to truly fly—the others, wright brothers included, were still just doing big hops. Curtiss’s June Bug got off the ground on its own power, flew just shy of one mile, and landed on its own tricycle landing gear (invented by Curtiss.)

    Major Doofus Bill Kristol says:

    “Maybe it’s just me, but I find something off-putting about turning the White House into an exhibition hall for American tchotchkes.”

    Possibly because I am not some smug elitist, I personally have loved seeing the White House, the People’s House, used to display American manufacturing. And today’s demonstration of the new glass vial was no exception. I thought it was great. I think what PDJT is doing is amazing. It is interesting, educational, and it highlights our manufacturing base.

    And BTW who would call a Gibson guitar, brooms, high quality rifle scopes, helicopters, earth moving equipment, dinner ware and the like as tchotchkes. I am so insulted and angry over Bill Kristol’s comment I could brain him with the President’s baseball bat. I enjoy it and think it is cool and then this douche (can I say that here?) is SNEERING at me like I am some kind of low rent trailer park knuckle dragger…not that there is anything wrong with that, frankly. Better that than to be a Bill Kristol.

      I don’t seem to be able to explain quite how I feel about this. I love the WH with all of the history and majesty. I feel enormous respect and reverence for it as a symbol. I see the WH as stately, quiet, mannerly. Hushed. Like a museum.

      At first I was kind of taken aback, I guess, by how the President rolls. You know, he brings all these people into the WH and has all this activity and it is open and televised. But I very quickly saw that I like it. It is like a beautiful house that people can’t use as a home and they take their shoes off and never put their feet up. But Trump uses the WH as if it were a home that was made to be lived in. Not for himself, but for us. It’s like he is inviting us into the WH all the time, because it is ours and we were meant to be there.

      I’ve never seen this before. To me it is unique. Trumpian. I love it.

        Interesting comment, Sylvia. It took me a long time to get past my disgust of the Clinton’s disrespectful behavior in our White House. I was very glad when Laura & George Bush moved in & restored dignity (nevermind that I later learned about globalism).

        Then came 9/11, and all our federal buildings, including those visited by so many DC tourists became off limits without strict entry protocols, reservations, etc. If DC was in its own Elite bubble before, 9/11 magnified it, and barriers have been increasing ever since.

        Obama opened the WH to anti-USA celebs who hate us. He sometimes spoke shallowly & derisively about being President as if it was a burden to him & Michelle. My disconnect grew even stronger.

        Finally came President Trump who not only works on our behalf in the WH, but invites regular folk to come meet with him. He truly is one of us, working for us. Others around Trump might succumb to the DC bubble over time, but I don’t see our President ever forgetting that we have as much right to the symbol & dignity of the White House as he does.

      Hey, Bill…it’s called American pride…something that has been missing for at least 8 years (and obviously longer, in your case.). Any of you remember when the first astronauts were feted at the WH and each state was asked to contribute something grown in their state? I was a young person living in rural Oregon and I vividly recall groups of people going out to pick wild berries in the mountains to use in the meal. There was great pride in being a part of history, and we’re beginning to see a bit of it currently (although never shown on MSM, of course.)

It fell and hit the edge of his water glass and just blew up with shards of corelle going everywhere!!! I was finding it weeks later under furniture in the next room!

      Come to think of it, that was the last time they came over… hmmm… ? LOL
