WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump visited a Boeing aircraft factory in South Carolina on Friday, just days after workers there rejected a bid to join the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers.
Trump saw the rollout of a new version of a wide-body jetliner, the Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner. Boeing announced Thursday that Singapore Airlines had committed to buying 10 of the huge planes, which can seat more than 300 passengers.
During remarks to Boeing employees, the president said companies that fire American workers and move overseas “will pay a heavy penalty”. Trump also said the U.S. military is looking at “a big order of F-18 Super Hornets.
