President Trump has signed an executive order aimed at making American made good even more American.

According to Fox News:

During the annual White House “Made in America” showcase, President Trump said Monday his administration will require American products to use more American components if they are to be used by the government.

American-made products used for government projects currently can contain 50 percent foreign components and still be considered American, Trump said.

He signed an executive order boosting the percentage of American components to 75 percent.

The president signed the order alongside manufacturers from all 50 states.

Trump sited that he was following the founders lead by reawakening American industry and independence.
