In his weekly address posted Saturday, President Donald Trump commemorated Andrew Jackson, the country’s seventh president, and Rosie the Riveter, the icon representing women that worked in manufacturing during World War II. Trump called on Americans to unite and find the “soul of Rosie and the spirit of Jackson.” Transcript as follows: This week, I traveled to Nashville, Tennessee to lay a wreath at the grave of Andrew Jackson, on the 250thanniversary of his birth. Jackson was an American hero. First, as the brilliant general whose crushing defeat of the British at New Orleans saved our independence in the War of 1812. And later, as the seventh President of the United States — when he fought to defend the forgotten men and women from the arrogant elite of his day. Does it sound familiar? The memory of his leadership lives on in our people, and his spirit points us to a better future. This week, I also traveled to the Willow Run plant in Michigan. At that facility during the Second World War, the Ford Motor Company built not cars, but entire airplanes. At one point, workers there produced a complete B-24 Liberator every single hour — hard to believe.
