NORTH CHARLESTON (WCSC) - President Donald Trump will visit the Lowcountry this week to celebrate the debut of Boeing's newest plane, the White House confirms.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer made the following comment at his daily press briefing Tuesday:
"Boeing has a long tradition of welcoming Presidents to our facilities," Gordon Johndroe, Vice President of Communications at The Boeing Company said Tuesday. "We welcome the opportunity to show President Trump the newest Boeing airplane, made exclusively in Charleston, South Carolina."
The 787-10 has received 149 orders from nine customers across the globe, according to Boeing. The airplane begins flight testing later this year and will be delivered to customers starting in 2018.
Gov. Henry McMaster will also be in attendance Friday, according to the Governor's Office.
