PHOENIX — President Donald Trump visited the Valley Tuesday, making a stop at a local Honeywell facility that has been enlisted to help in manufacturing much-needed N95 masks.

President Trump visited Honeywell to highlight the company's "investment in critical medical equipment production within the United States and the addition of 500 manufacturing jobs in Arizona."

He boarded Air Force One around 8 a.m. Arizona time and arrived in Phoenix around noon.

The company has added new production capability in Phoenix to meet the increased demand for N-95 respirator masks amid the coronavirus.

The Arizona visit was President Trump's first trip away from the Washington area in more than a month. He last came to our state in February for a "Keep America Great" rally.

President Trump said he also hopes to visit Ohio soon and to be able to hold rallies later on.
