White House announces new theme weeks

IANS  |  Washington 

The is set to hold events pertaining to three themes: "Made in America", "American Heroes" and "American Dreams", the media reported.

This week will include at least two events related to the "Made in America" theme, including a "product showcase", in which American-made products from all 50 states will be brought to the White House, spokeswoman Helen Aguirre Ferre said on Sunday.

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump will issue a proclamation on the importance of making products in the US, reports Politico news.

Ferre offered few details on the other two themed weeks on the schedule, though she suggested the "American Heroes" week will include military veterans.

The White House's past themed weeks, which focused on infrastructure, workforce development, technology and energy, have faced mockery on social media, with the President's critics noting that major news events like former FBI Director James Comey's testimony before Congress have largely overshadowed the administration's efforts.
