ROANOKE COUNTY, Va. – Kellyanne Conway, an adviser to President Donald Trump, was in Roanoke Friday discussing the future of the manufacturing industry. Administration officials were promoting the Republican tax reform plan for the sixth annual Manufacturing Day.

Conway attended a town hall event at Optical Cable Corporation in Roanoke County.

She explained why she thinks the president’s tax reform plan will help companies and workers, including those in the manufacturing industry. She says the president’s plan includes taking out unnecessary regulations, shrinking the number of tax brackets and expanding childcare tax credits, among other measures.

She says President Trump cares about manufacturing workers.

“I got a lot of head nods around that room because these hard-working men and women at OCC and all across the country, the 12 million men and women who work in manufacturing, deserve a tax break,” she said.

Former governor George Allen and National Association of Manufacturers President Jay Timmons also spoke at the event.
