President Donald Trump stopped in Lima Wednesday to visit the Joint Manufacturing Systems plant. Trump pointed out that the plant has seen some hard times in recent years…

He said that has all turned around for the plant as the U.S. invests more heavily into the military. The plant will be producing 30 tanks per month. That number was down to just one per month 3 years ago.

Trump also praised the workers of theplant. He said that without them building tanks, the U.S. wouldn’t be able to strengthen the military…

The U.S. Army awarded General Dynamics Land Systems, which operates the government-owned plant, a $714 million contract to upgrade 174 Abrams tanks in January.
