Vice President Mike Pence said the Nucor Steel plant in Auburn a strong sign of the nation’s economic recovery while speaking at the facility during a visit to central New York on Tuesday.
“Steel is back in America,” Pence said.
The vice president opened his remarks by congratulating the facility on its new rolling mill, which opened just last year.
“As President Trump said, steel workers are the backbone of America,” Pence said. “And he knows what he’s talking about because the hardworking men and women of Cayuga County elected a builder to be president of the United States of America. This president loves men and women who know how to make things.”
