The White House is launching a three-week messaging campaign to spotlight President Donald Trump's agenda, including "Made in America" week starting Monday with US -made products from all 50 states.

"We have countries that charge us 100% tax on a product".

The President toured American made products from across the nation at the White House this afternoon as part of his "Made in America" showcase.

Company represents Arkansas to display USA -made product. The company is celebrating its 100th anniversary and is owned by founder L.D. Peeler's great-grandsons, Mark and Cliff Ritchie.

Spicer also offered the "decline of newspapers" as an example of a product lacking demand in the United States.

The day provided an opportunity for Trump to turn the page away from the Russia-related controversies swirling around his administration and instead provide images of him marveling at a host of products made in all 50 U.S. states.

The President hammered the "America First" rhetoric of his campaign and drew on the words of presidents who ruled more than 100 years ago to make his case, quoting Presidents George Washington, James Garfield and Theodore Roosevelt.

Subsequent theme weeks focused on energy and technology.

The effort comes amid escalating inquiries into possible ties between Trump campaign aides and the Russian government, which intelligence agencies have concluded meddled in the 2016 election in an effort to help Trump win.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer responded to these concerns during the press briefing on Monday.

Even though health insurance reform is a big issue, the White House is not planning a week on medical issues.

"Every day and every week, in a sense, is a healthcare week", a senior administration official told reporters, per the report. "It's something that enormous White House and administration resources have been devoted to since Day One".

The three-week pageant is thought to be a lead-up to the push to rewrite American tax code. "Obviously we want to create an environment where more things are made here, more things are exported from here, and that's what the president's agenda sets out to do", he said.
