Trump Backs Baldwin's American-Made Construction Bill

President Donald Trump- hammering his "America First" campaign theme after recent policy flip-flops that have infuriated his populist base - signed an executive order on Tuesday authorizing studies and tweaks in government rules that could lead to restrictions on foreign technical workers.

Trump's visit to Wisconsin takes him to the congressional district of House Speaker Paul Ryan, who won't be joining the president because he's on a congressional trip visiting North Atlantic Treaty Organisation countries.

It's unclear how the program may change, but India's huge tech industry says America still has a shortage of skilled workers that the H-1B system was created to ease.

But reviewing the "Buy America policies" does little to keep the promises Trump made to Wisconsin workers, U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Madison, said in a statement.

"The more attention the new president pays to world stage including North Korea and Syria, the less chance there is of a reflated America".

The EO also establishes certain Hire American standards, which are not necessarily limited to federal procurement or federally-funded projects.

According to multiple senior officials and the White House Office of the Press Secretary, the executive order is set up in two parts, "Buy American" and 'Hire American'. "Instead, they should be given to the most skilled and highest paid applicants and they should never ever be used to replace Americans", said the United States president in Wisconsin.

"Buy American" requirements that are written into USA law "have been gutted", he said, by loopholes, allowing too many contracts to go to overseas bidders. Earlier this year, NASA indicated it's thinking about making a return to the moon quicker than previously planned. "It's going to be very exciting".

Yet in a briefing paper given to reporters, the White House says such critics fail "to take into account" that helping American contractors would boost American incomes, raise tax revenue and help revive US industry.

Mr. Trump told Garrett past year that during the Palm Beach social season, qualified workers willing to take up a part-time gig are hard to come by because Americans want full-time jobs.
