Be honest: few of us really know what to expect from President Trump’s first address to Congress tonight, and that’s one reason the event is likely to get good ratings. We do know what he campaigned for and what he has chosen to emphasize in his first month in office. Those of us at Global Automakers are eager to hear more, especially about his ideas to grow American manufacturing.
