"No administration has accomplished more in the first 90 days, that includes on military, on the border, on trade, on regulation, on law enforcement, we love our law enforcement and on government reform. Today we're building on that optimism and I'm proud to announce that we are about to take bold new steps to follow through on my pledge to buy American and hire American." (Clapping)
2. SOUNDBITE (English) President Donald Trump:
"For too long we have watched as our factories have been closed and our jobs have been sent to other far away lands. We have lost 70,000 factories since China joined the World Trade Organization and you've seen that, you've heard about it. 70,000, the World Trade Organization, another one of our disasters. But this election, the American people voted to end the theft of American prosperity, they voted to bring back their jobs and bring back their dreams, into our country."
3. SOUNDBITE (English) President Donald Trump:
"In just a few moments, I will be signing a Buy American, Hire American executive order. You have not heard about that in a long time in this country. With this action we are sending a powerful signal to the world, we are going to defend our workers, protect our jobs, and finally put America first." (Cheering)
U.S. President Donald Trump hopes to revive the economic populism that helped drive his election campaign, signing an order Tuesday in Wisconsin to tighten rules on technology companies bringing in highly skilled foreign workers.
The president is targeting the H-1B visa program, which the White House says undercuts U.S. workers by bringing in large numbers of cheaper, foreign workers, driving down wages.
He was signing the directive at Snap-on Inc. in Kenosha, Wisconsin, a state he narrowly carried in November on the strength of support from white, working-class voters.
Trump currently has only a 41 percent approval rating in the state.
The tech industry has argued that the H-1B program is needed because it encourages students to stay in the U.S. after getting degrees in high-tech specialties - and companies can't always find enough American workers with the skills they need.
The new order would direct U.S. agencies to propose rules to prevent immigration fraud and abuse in the program.
