LIVE VIDEO: President Trump visits Phoenix, tours Honeywell facility

By ABC Arizona, May 5, 2020:

PHOENIX — President Donald Trump is visiting the Valley today, making a stop at a local Honeywell facility that has been enlisted to help in manufacturing much-needed N95 masks.

The company has added new production capability in Phoenix to meet the increased demand for N-95 respirator masks amid the coronavirus.

The Arizona visit is President Trump’s first trip away from the Washington area in more than a month. He last came to our state in February for a “Keep America Great” rally.

President Trump said he also hopes to visit Ohio soon and to be able to hold rallies later on.

 

American manufacturing is at the heart of our battle against the Coronavirus. Companies across the country have heeded President Trump’s call and repurposed entire factories to make personal protective equipment and other needed supplies.

Honeywell is one such business with an incredible story to tell. Today, President Trump saw firsthand how the company transformed an aerospace facility in Arizona—one that designed and manufactured aircraft propulsion engines and auxiliary power units—into a nimble face-mask production line.

As a result, Honeywell is expected to produce more than 20 million N95 masks per month. This expanded operation has allowed the firm to begin hiring 500 additional workers at its Phoenix facility, creating jobs during a tough time for many Americans.
