President Donald Trump is ordering the government to bolster protections for US-made goods and reform a visa program for foreign workers. He signed the order after touring a factory in Wisconsin.

Trump announced the new executive order, instructing federal agencies to protect US-manufactured goods from foreign competition and review the H-1B visa program for foreign workers, in a speech at Snap-on Tools in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

“Widespread abuse in our immigration system” allowed companies to replace American workers by foreigners, at lower pay, Trump said, announcing a reform of the H-1B visa program. “This will stop.”

“For too long we’ve watched as our factory have been closed and our jobs have been sent to other, faraway lands,” Trump said, bringing up the number of 70,000 factories since China joined the World Trade Organization.

“In this election, the American people voted to end the theft of American prosperity. They voted to bring back their jobs and bring back the American dream.”
