>> thank you very much. it's an honor to be here with the great men and women of american manufacturing. in a few moment is i'll sign a presidential proclaim make declaring today national manufacturing day. from the founding off our nation, from washington to jefferson, from jackson to mckinley, our nation has long understood that our strength as a country depends upon the strength of our domestic industry. we're all better off when we make, buy and sell more products made in the u.s.a. and that's what is happening in our country and you see it and the levels of enthusiasm are incredible. today in the coming weeks manufacturers in all 50 states will hold events to encourage more americans to pursue a contrary in high-expect he high-tech world of modern manufacturing. my administration strongly
3:27 pm
supports that goal and we have been supporting it for a long time, and it's really now starting to pay off, as everybody behind me knows. that's why i've asked members of my cabinet to travel across the country, share our message, and meet with the workers, and they are hard workers. we have also already created tens of thousands of new manufacturing jobs, plants and companies are coming back into our country, you see it with announcements now from automobile companies to every kind of company. they're coming back in and perhaps even more importantly, they don't want to leave anymore because they know they're leaving a very good thing. so we're creating thousands more jobs, and if congress acts on our historic tax cut, the largest in the history of our country, and also tax reform, and that framework that we have put forward, it will be even
3:28 pm
more so. under the current law, products made in america are taxed at marginal rate of 35% and sometimes mump higher than that. putting our manufacturers at a tremendous disadvantage to the manufacturers in other countries. we want to dramatically reduce the tax on american manufacturers so we can compete and win on the world stage. and i will tell you the resend different to what we're proposing is fantastic. we're keeping our companies and the companies are coming back in, and perhaps most importantly, we're making our workers happy and they love to work. so, i want to thank everybody for been here and make a couple of folks behind me would want to say a few words. would you like to say something. >> shoe, thank you, mr. president and your administration for taking on the job. 300,000 regulations and to make -- [inaudible] -- make us more competitive and be more

effective. >> that's really great. you bring up a very good point. we have cut regulation more than any administration. there is -- we have -- nobody is even close and we're talking about in ten months we have cut more regulations than any president, any administration, and we have a long way to go. we're cutting down so that highways don't take 20 year to build and other things don't take decades and decades and then find out in many cases, after going through the process, they can't build it anyway. so, we have cut regulations more than has ever been cut before, and we are continuing. at the same time, i like regulations. it's fine. we want clean air, we want crystal clear water, what we want also is we want safety, but there's a point at which we have to take care of our country and we have to take care of our worker and's companies. so we're very honored and that's a great point with regulation is. thank you very much. anybody else? >> thank you so much, for having
