Jack Heretik, Washington Free Beacon:

President Donald Trump jumped into a fire engine on Monday that was parked outside the White House.

The fire engine was being shown alongside other products made in the United States as part of the Trump administration’s “Made in America” week.

Trump appeared to jump with ease in and out of the engine while Vice President Mike Pence walked next to the engine. Trump seemingly enjoyed his time in the driver’s seat of the engine as he looked around.

Danielle Haynes, UPI.com:

Trump climbed aboard a fire truck made by Pierce Manufacturing in Wisconsin.

“Where’s the fire?” he asked from inside. “I’ll put it out.”

“We will celebrate craftsmen, producers, innovators like the incredible men and women in this room today,” Trump said at the conclusion of the event. “We will protect our workers, promote our industry and be proud of our history because we will put America first.”
