DES MOINES (AP) — Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds told President Donald Trump on Friday that his is “an administration of action” that is identifying barriers and gaps for U.S. workers and finding solutions.
Reynolds is a member of the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board, which Trump established by executive order last year. Trump's daughter and adviser Ivanka Trump and Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross chair the panel. It's goal was “to develop and implement a strategy to revamp the American workforce to better meet the challenges of the 21st century.”
Video provided by the White House includes Reynolds praising Trump for creating the board.
“What I so appreciate about your administration is that it's really an administration of action,” she told Trump, sitting three chairs away from him and next to Larry Kudlow, the president's top economic adviser.
Ivanka Trump announced at the meeting that the president planned to sign an order extending the board's assignment for another year to further implement pilot projects the group initiated.
