President Donald Trump visited a tool manufacturing headquarters in Kenosha, Wisc., Tuesday, where he signed a new executive order and expressed optimism in the “incredible spirit” that he said was “sweeping” across the country.

“We’re about to take bold new steps to follow through on my pledge to buy American, and hire American,” the president said immediately after touring Snap-On Tools manufacturing in the Dairy state. “We’ll be making big investments in rebuilding our military and repairing our badly depleted infrastructure.”

“Big infrastructure bill, probably use it with something else that’s a little bit harder to get approved in order to get that approved, but infrastructure is coming, and its coming fast,” the president continued. (RELATED: Trump Weighs Tying Infrastructure Plan To Health Care Reform)

The president highlighted his new executive order during the speech, but also touched upon foreign affairs, health care, tax reform and jobs. The president spoke about the importance of NATO, but also lamented that some of the other members must increase their support.

“As we work to restore the American dream at home, we’re also working to restore America’s standing abroad, the president continued, before saying that other countries, including allies, need to pay their fair share.

Trump said tax reform was coming, and also reiterated his continued commitment to health care reform.
