President Trump Visits Maine For The 1st Time Since He Took Office
President Donald Trump will be in Maine this week for the first time since he took office, according to WMTW. The report says he'll stop by a manufacturing company in Guilford that makes swabs, which are used for COVID-19 testing. The company is Puritan Medical Products, and Trump is scheduled to be there on Friday.
Puritan Medical Supplies received $75.5 million dollars from the Defense Production Act "to boost its monthly production," as per WMTW. The report indicates that Bath Iron Works also made machines to give to Puritan for the same reason. 150 additional jobs were reportedly created because of this.
Governor Janet Mills reportedly weighed in on Trump's visit, saying she is concerned about the security problems his visit will cause.
