President Donald Trump will speak to employees at Loren Cook Co. when he visits Springfield on Wednesday, White House officials confirmed this morning.
After arriving at Springfield-Branson National Airport, Trump is expected to travel to the industrial fans manufacturer's 2707 N. Barnes St. plant to speak about tax reform at 2:30 p.m. Officials with Loren Cook Co. declined to comment this morning.
During the president's campaign run, Loren Cook Co. Vice President Loren Cook II contributed $5,400 to Trump, according to SBJ archives.
“I think this might be the last campaign I contribute to because I am just so disenfranchised with both parties,” Cook said in a November SBJ article, noting his contribution to the Trump campaign was not so much in support of Trump as it was anti-establishment.
Trump's trip to the Queen City will kick off a series of stops related to overhauling U.S. tax policy, Bloomberg first reported.
