President Donald Trump is coming to northwest Ohio next week to visit the Joint Systems Manufacturing Center in Lima. The Lima News reports that Trump plans to speak at and tour the tank plant on Wednesday. The White House reports that this is to “reaffirm the President’s commitment to the United States Military and the American worker.”
The tank plant has rebounded over the last five years and currently is filling new jobs. On January 11, the U.S. Army announced a $714 million order for General Dynamics Land Systems upgrades on 171 M1 Abrams tanks.
We’ll have more details on Trump’s visit when they become available.
