Aboard Air Force One
En Route Kenosha, Wisconsin
12:54 P.M. EDT
MS. SANDERS: I'll give you guys a couple of quick updates real quick and then I'll take questions. I'll keep it short so we have more time for questions. Also, my apologies, I thought we were landing at 1:30, so I'm a little delayed today.
We obviously -- we're headed to Wisconsin where the President will sign a copy of an executive order that will make significant progress towards Buy American and Hire American, the cornerstone of President Trump's vision for a government that answers to the American workers who built this country.
Instead of going into detail on that -- and, frankly, during Q&A, if we can skip over that -- I have copies of the executive order I'll bring back -- they're printing right now -- and give those to you guys. And then if you have questions after the event on that, I can come back and --
Q Has it gone out on email already?
MS. SANDERS: I don’t think so. So you guys -- as far as I know, it has not gone out, so I'll give you guys a first -- hard copies on that.

And so that date has not been set when it will be, but it will be scheduled at some point over the next couple of weeks.
And then, lastly, Sean mentioned yesterday that the Prime Minister of Italy will visit on Thursday, and there will be a joint press conference in conjunction with that visit. And so those are all the announcements I have.
With that, I'll take you all's questions.
Q Following up on Paris, can you respond to the reports that the reason it was delayed is because there's a lot of discord about how to proceed among the top advisors, whether or not to pull out?
MS. SANDERS: No, the reason, like I said, that it was -- they wanted to have that conversation. Since they haven’t had it, I don’t think they could say that there's a lot of discord between where everyone is. And that's the purpose of the meeting. And so it was, again, scheduling conflicts for today.
Q What's the President's feeling about the Paris agreement? Would he like to pull out? I know he's voiced skepticism in the past.
MS. SANDERS: I haven’t had a chance to have that conversation. Again, I think that's a lot of what this meeting will be about, is the conversation and an open
