Trump signs order to boost purchase of US steel, iron

United States President Donald Trump signed on Thursday an executive order aimed at increasing the amount of US-produced steel, iron and aluminum used in infrastructure projects.

White House Trade Adviser Peter Navarro told reporters that the order instructs heads of agencies to "encourage recipients of new federal financial assistance awards to use, to the greatest extent practical, iron, steel, aluminum, cement and other manufacturing products produced in the United States."

"Together, we’re going to do everything in our power to make sure that more products are stamped with those wonderful words: 'Made in the USA'," Trump said.
