Trump delivered remarks on jobs and the economy at Boeing's Charleston, South Carolina plant. As he approached the podium, he joined the crowd in chanting "USA! USA! USA!" He also applauded Boeing for their work on their new plane — the 787 Dreamliner — which he toured before speaking to the crowd. "That is one, beautiful airplane," he said. Other takeaways:

  • "We want products made in America, by American hands... Our goal as a nation must be to rely less on imports but on products made here in the USA."
  • We will stop other countries from their "tremendous cheating," and cut regulations and taxes so that the U.S. is on a level playing field.
  • There will be a "very substantial price to pay" for companies who fire their employees and move their facilities overseas.
  • "We are going to fully rebuild the military... we are looking seriously at a big order. We're also working on the Air Force One project, which was tough for previous administrations, but we're getting closer and closer."

President Trump, speaking from a podium at his golf club in Bedminster, N.J., on Friday announced that he is prepared to issue executive orders suspending payroll taxes and extending enhanced unemployment benefits through the end of 2020, and halting student loan interest and payments indefinitely.

Why it matters: The impending orders come after talks between the White House and Democratic leadership collapsed Friday afternoon. But Trump said he remains committed to striking a deal with Congress on a broader stimulus package before signing the orders.

President Trump tweeted on Friday that his administration is "going a different way" with coronavirus aid after negotiations with congressional Democrats stalled again, suggesting he will use an executive order to address stimulus spending.

What he's saying: "Pelosi and Schumer only interested in Bailout Money for poorly run Democrat cities and states. Nothing to do with China Virus! Want one trillion dollars. No interest. We are going a different way!" Trump tweeted.
