My fellow Americans. This week I traveled to Nashville Tennessee to layer read. Acting grave of Andrew Jackson. On the 250. Anniversary. Of his birth. Jackson was an American here. First as a brilliant general who's crushing defeat of the British at New Orleans savior independence. In the war of eighteen to. And later as a seventh president of the United States when he fought to defend the forgotten men and women. From the arrogant delete of his day. Does sound familiar. The memory of his leadership lives alone. In our people. And his spirit points us to a better future. This week I also traveled to the willow run plant in Michigan. At that facility during the Second World War. The Ford Motor Co. built not cars but entire airplanes. At one point workers there produce a complete. Beat 24 liberator every single hour hard to believe. Today and that side as the new facility. With the cutting edge cars of the future will be tested. And this week the all plant was built once again with thousands of workers and engineers. I always there to share the good news for the American auto industry we announced will be reversing. An eleventh hour executive action from the previous administration. That was threatening thousands of auto jobs in Michigan. And across a map. And I mean threat. It was very very sad to see. In fact we are setting up a task force in every federal agency to identify any unnecessary regulation. That is hurting American businesses. And American jobs. The first job reports of my administration show that we've already added nearly half a million new jobs. The days of economic surrender to the United States are over. For too long special interest and made money shipping jobs overseas. We need a new. Economic model. Let's call let the American model. Under this model we will lower the burden on American business but in exchange. They must hire and grow America and American jobs. This will be a win win for companies and for our workers. Let's buy American and higher American let's create jobs in America. Let's imagine new industries. And let's build a beautiful future together. Among the workers building B 24 bombers at the willow run plant during World War II. Was one tough lady. You might have heard there they called her Rosie the riveter. And when roads each country called she answered the call. Rosie was famous for toughness and her strength. And for the words that were emblazoned above her famous image. It said very simply. We can do it. If Americans unite and fight began within our nation this all of Rosie and the spirit of Jackson. I have no doubt that we can do it and do it like never before. Thank you enjoy you week.
