U.S. President Donald Trump will meet with automotive workers and executives of Ford, Fiat Chrysler, and General Motors in Detroit, Michigan on Wednesday as he attempts to shore up more support for keeping automotive jobs in America.
Later on Wednesday, President Trump travels to Nashville, Tennessee to lay a wreath at the grave of former U.S. President Andrew Jackson on the 250th anniversary of his birth.
Trump will also hold a campaign rally in a Nashville auditorium to endorse the American Health Care Act which has recently come under fire from some Republicans in the Republican Party.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer gave a White House briefing yesterday in which he criticized the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) for having “consistently wrong” coverage estimates.
“Its attempts to estimate coverage have been historically faulty” Spokesman Spicer said about the Congressional Budget Office.
