President Trump Talks Job Training, Not Trade Bailout, in Iowa Visit
PEOSTA, Iowa -- President Trump visited Iowa on Thursday in the middle of trade war that's hurting Iowa farmers and families, but that wasn't what he came to talk about. President Trump was joined by his daughter and adviser, Ivanka, Secretary of Labor Alex Acosta and Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross to discuss the President's executive order encouraging more job training programs in the US. Iowa is the first state the President has visited to discuss job training since signing the order. President Trump was welcomed to Iowa by Congressman Rod Blum and Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds. The group toured Northeast Iowa Community College (NICC) then hosted a round table discussion about job training.
