(Ypsilanti, MI) — President Trump will be visiting a Ford Motor plant in Michigan today, a state where thousands are reeling from historic flooding and the failure of two dams earlier this week.
The President is scheduled to tour a plant in Ypsilanti that’s making ventilators for the COVID-19 crisis. The Ford Motor company and GE Healthcare announced in March that they would produce 50-thousand ventilators over the course of 100 days.
Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s office says Trump’s visit contradicts rules the governor put in place to fight the spread of COVID-19, but she will not try to stop it.
The president has, however, been asked to wear a face mask, during his tour of the plant.
….Together, we built the greatest economy in history. We will do it again – better than ever before!
