Council of Economic Advisers chair previews president's Ohio speech

WASHINGTON (Gray DC) -- President Donald Trump heads to Ohio Thursday to give a speech on infrastructure.

The president will fly into Cleveland and then head to the suburb or Richfield. The venue for the speech is IUOE Local 18's training facility.

Gray Television Washington News Bureau senior reporter Ted Fioraliso spoke with Kevin Hassett, chair of the Council of Economic Advisers, about the trip. Hassett says training workers is critical to turning around the nation's infrastructure.

The Ohio Democratic Party is calling the president’s speech a “taxpayer-funded photo op.” And Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) says buying American products and hiring American workers should be included in the president’s infrastructure plan.
