A Focus on the Rustbelt and Manufacturing

Also relatively early in the President’s address is a focus on the “rustbelt” and manufacturing. This is probably not an accident. Several Midwestern states that rely heavily on manufacturing supported Donald Trump in 2016 shifted and supported President Biden in 2020 (e.g., the “blue wall” of WI, MI, and PA)–a shift that propelled the President into office. These states will be equally important to his reelection efforts in 2024 and to the upcoming midterm elections in November.
