The American Manufacturing Council is actually the principal private sector advisory committee to the Secretary of Commerce on the manufacturing inside the United States.
Trump described Liveris as “one of the most respected businessmen inside the entire world,” who will be tasked with finding ways to bring industry back to America.
“Nobody can do which like Andrew,” Trump said.
Leveris announced which his company will invest in “a fresh state of the art innovation center” in Michigan, crediting Trump with creating a business climate which energized his company.
However Liveris, an Australian living in Michigan, wasn’t always a fan of the President-elect. During the Republican primary, he compared the election to reality TV.
Friday’s event was interrupted repeatedly by protestors — along with at one point, while Trump was introducing his Secretary of Education pick Betsy DeVos, she had to repeat the end of her speech because of protestor interruptions.
along with another point while he was speaking, Trump said about the protestors, “Get them out of here … where do these people come coming from? Unbelievable.”
