President Trump on Tuesday, April 18, signed an executive order instructing government agencies to buy more products made in America and give preference to hiring American citizens. The technology companies in the Silicon Valley and other research and development centers for technology and scientific products employ highly-skilled persons from across the globe.
Note: The federal government reportedly employs 24 million people. This fact is included in a new data bank created by former Microsoft chief Steve Balmer. Balmer has spent millions to create a data bank on U.S. Government expenditures, including personnel, supplies, and trends in costs.
