🔴LIVE:Trump Participates in a Ribbon Cutting URGENT Ceremony at the Louis Vuitton

very much everybody very much appreciate
it we’ve had a tremendous day today in the Middle East we were a little bit
unconventional and we did something that nobody’s been able to do for many many
years they’ve been trying to put things together so we went the unconventional
way and they had some fighting and they said we don’t like this fighting too
much this is a little more difficult than people thought but I want to thank
president Erdogan of Turkey I want to thank the Kurds in Kurd leadership I
want to thank certain other countries that behind the scenes were helping us
out then it’s a tremendous thing Isis is totally under control and we’re
continuing to capture more we have a tremendous situation worked out in so
many different ways and it’s an honor to have been involved in it I want to thank
vice president pence and Secretary of State Pompeyo they traveled through the
night I don’t know how safe this travel was and a lot of different reports going
on but they they got there they did a fantastic job we sent some early
representatives to site and the area where they negotiated and we made a deal
that’s I think in the best interests of civilization it’s beyond Turkey and
beyond Syria and beyond all of the countries that could have been involved
in a disastrous war where millions of people could have been killed millions
and millions of people could have been killed and we we were able to do
something and I think we’ll get it done I think now we get it done so we have a
pause for a period of time ceasefire a pause and during that pause a lot of
things are happening already they’re starting to happen people want to see it
happen and it was a great thing so I just want to thank everybody and Bernard

thank you very much I want to thank you all for your confidence in the United
States and your confidence and investment in the low consciousness late
the great state of Texas you’ll be very happy
you’ll be very very happy as bernhard mentioned we met shortly after the
election to discuss my vision for creating an american manufacturing
Renaissance through historic tax cuts and better trade deals and deregulation
we’re making trade deals like nobody has ever seen before we just did one with
China phase one will get it signed very quickly for the farmers far far bigger
than anyone ever thought possible also financial services and many other things
but the MVD mean trade deals we’ve made with South Korea with Mexico Canada
assuming the Democrats ever get it passed which is a question because they
don’t seem to like to make deals very much they they have to get that one done
that’s a very important transaction the u.s. MCA and we’re intest Remender
support we’re joined also by jerod de Vaca who are both here today as where is
Ivanka Jarrod stand up what a good job you do even though they’re related to me just
slightly I will tell you what a job a bank is responsible for 14 million jobs
this year over the last couple of years with companies going out in training
people and it’s been an incredible success she started off two and a half
years ago she wanted 500,000 jobs that’s a lot but it was typical Ivanka it ended
up and now the number I think it just cost fourteen million jobs going to
Walmart going to ExxonMobil going to the great companies and they train people
and the numbers are incredible and that’s one of the reasons that our
numbers are so good thank you very much and Jared great job you’re doing thank
you very much both Bernard had faith in that vision vision of doing something
right here in this incredible state and promised to bring a brand new factory to
the United States and today Wow has he delivered he’s really delivered this is
someplace Johnson County is home to some of the hardest-working Patriots in
America Louis Vuitton’s 50 million dollar investment will be especially big
and especially incredible to the small town of Alvarado a community of fewer
than 5,000 people and this workshop as they call it a very big workshop it’s a
great name though actually I could learn something from you about branding
I like the workshop but this workshop will soon employ 500 of the most highly
skilled workers anywhere in the world no one can match the precision and
perfection of an American artisan workers here will have great pay quality
health care 401ks and by the way the 401k since my election have gone through
the roof and nobody wants to see them be cut in
half go down 82% they’re going to go up they’re only going in one direction but
they are up 70 80 80 to 91% they’ve been up and when they get to go and press
that lever to vote for who I have a feeling we’re going to do very well very
well as we’ve done in Texas and as we did in 2016 and
one of the reasons I love the state so much and also profit sharing every year
Louie Vuitton will pay more than twenty six million dollars in wages and that
number will increase even higher as the facility doubles to one thousand workers
in a very short period of time every purse handbag and piece of luggage
produced here in Johnson County will be made by hand and it will bear the symbol
of excellence and beat all around the world that it’ll also have made in the
USA stamped on it so we appreciate that made in the USA under my administration
we believe that we can build it grow it or make it in the United States and we
are doing that in record numbers today we have more people working in the
United States that have ever worked in our country before almost a hundred and
sixty million people working with jobs and doing well after losing 60,000
factories under the previous two administrations we have now gained
nearly 10,000 new factories under my administration in just a very short
period of time and they’re coming in and the in droves last year we saw the
biggest increase in manufacturing jobs in more than two decades investments
like the one we celebrate today have given the United States the hottest
economy anywhere on earth nobody close since the election we have created more
than 6.4 million jobs we have gained seven hundred and seventy five thousand
new jobs here in Texas including more than 70,000 manufacturing jobs nearly
seven million Americans have been lifted off food stamps median household income
has increased by fourteen hundred dollars to a new all-time high and shift
mean I don’t know if you’ve seen this but it was out yesterday median
household income it’s more than five thousand dollars higher and that doesn’t
include the tax cuts which is another two thousand dollars that’s something
that’s ample unemployment is at the lowest rate in more than half a century
african-american and Hispanic American Asian American unemployment rates have
reached the lowest levels ever recorded in the history of our country
the Texas unemployment rate is the lowest in our history and I don’t know
if the governor is here right now he’s going to be joining me in a little while
but our governor has done a great job our lieutenant governor’s done a
fantastic job our senators I mean we have really we’ve got some fantastic
people can everybody you’ve really done a brilliant job led by the former
governor as we said because Ric was what we twelve years record 12 years as the
how much yeah good okay good corrected me off hate to be corrected I’m glad I
was glad I was right these amazing achievements are the result of a policy
that puts American workers first since our tax cuts and regulation cuts
American companies have brought nearly 1 trillion dollars back to our shores
money that could never have come back it was restricted would never have come
back over a trillion actually it’s now over a trillion dollars
we’ve endow ended the war in American energy America is now the number one
producer of oil and natural gas in the world with Texas producing 30% more
natural gas and 60% more oil and that means more jobs higher wages and lower
prices at the pump it’s an incredible number
we’re forging a new trade agenda based on fairness and reciprocity maybe my
favorite word reciprocal trade that includes replacing NAFTA which was a
terrible deal with a brand-new US MCA which if adopted will be a massive win
for the state of Texas it’s ranchers its growers producers farmers and factory
workers companies around the world are realizing that there’s never been a
better time to hire invest build and grow in the United States of America
this is the hottest time we’ve ever had it’s incredible what’s happening in our
country to maintain our nation’s competitive advantage my administration
started the pledge to American workers thanks to
again Ivanka’s leadership in this case private sector partners are going to
producing many many more jobs over a very short period of time and today I’m
pleased to announce that Louis Louie Bhutan is also signing the pledge
ensuring an opportunity for all 1,000 Texas workers here in Johnson County and
I want to thank you so we have 1,000 more workers so we can add on to the
list Louie Bhutan thank you and it’s truly
fitting that the name of this facility is Roshan bull
wrench named for the French general who helped General George Washington win the
decisive battle of the American Revolution and secure American
independence that’s great today France remains not only our oldest ally but one
of our most trusted and cherished we have a great relationship with France we
have our little disputes with Emmanuelle every once in a while
say hello to Emmanuelle but we’re doing very well and France is a great country
and a wonderful group of people we have a lot of fun and I do I like I like your
president very much actually today with the help of a great French partner we
are achieving a true victory for the people of Texas and the United States
once again I want to express my deep appreciation to everyone at Louis
Vuitton and to all of our incredible devoted skilled and beloved American
workers and it’s now my honor to cut the ribbon and officially welcome Louis
Vuitton to the great state of Texas Thank You
Bernard thank you thank you everyone
