President Trump is in South Carolina Friday to take a tour of the Boeing company facility and speak at the unveiling of a new aircraft.

“Going to Charleston, South Carolina, in order to spend time with Boeing and talk jobs! Look forward to it,” the president tweeted Friday morning.

According to the White House, Trump will meet with Dennis Muilenburg, president and CEO of Boeing, before touring the South Carolina facility. Then he will deliver remarks at the unveiling of the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.

The president’s visit follows a failed union drive at Boeing’s aircraft plant in Charleston last Wednesday when almost three-quarters of workers who voted rejected a bid to join the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers.

Trump’s statement is due to begin at 1:05 pm ET. Watch the live stream here.
