Wisconsin business leaders to meet with Trump

Gov. Scott Walker says when President Donald Trump comes to Wisconsin, he will see that people outside of Washington "still like his policies".

The president headed to Waukesha County Technical College, where he was expected to tout corporate apprenticeship programs to help fill the skills gap in the marketplace and provide an alternative to people who aren't going to college.

The U.S. House has already passed a bill that would repeal the ACA, while the Senate is working to craft its own version of the bill. Calling Obama Care a "disaster" (his favorite buzzword to describe the groundbreaking legislation), Trump said that Democrats will shut down every healthcare bill they put out, even if it is the "greatest healthcare plan ever".

The White House scheduled a statement by Trump on healthcare for later in the afternoon.

Following the event, Trump was scheduled to headline a $1,000-per-person fundraiser for Walker.

"These are sad but familiar stories in Wisconsin, where Obamacare premiums have doubled", Trump said.

Before leaving office, former President Barack Obama announced $175 million in apprenticeship grants to benefit 34,000 Americans.

Economists and politicians in both parties have focused in recent years on promoting apprenticeships and vocational education.
