President Donald Trump traveled to Phoenix on Tuesday to tour a Honeywell aerospace manufacturing plant.

Honeywell created a new production line at the facility to make N95 masks in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Trump thanked the employees at the plant who he said were working three shifts a day six days a week to produce respirator masks that would go to frontline medical workers.

The president said their efforts were part of the greatest industrial mobilization in America since World War II.

“We mourn for every life lost. We pray for every victim. And we shoulder this burden together as one people — one family — and one great American nation,” Trump said.

Honeywell is also making the masks in Rhode Island, but Arizona is a battleground state, and Trump used the event to tout his election win here in 2016. The president also invited several guest speakers on stage with him who expressed their support for his campaign.
