In the morning, the President will attend an event held at Nike headquarters to discuss how workers will benefit from progressive, high-standards trade agreements that would open up new markets and support high-quality jobs both for Oregon small businesses and large companies like Nike. The President will also make the case that strong bipartisan trade promotion legislation – introduced last month by Senators Ron Wyden and Orrin Hatch – is an important step to ensure our trade policy works for the middle class through strong enforcement provisions, transparency, and the requirement that our trade agreements include high-standards to bring greater opportunity to American businesses, level the playing field for American workers, protect the environment, and raise human rights and labor standards around the world. The President’s remarks are open to pre-credentialed media.

Afterward, the President will depart Portland, Oregon en route Watertown, South Dakota. The departure from the Oregon Air National Guard Base and the arrival at Watertown Regional Airport are open to pre-credentialed media.

In South Dakota, the President will deliver the commencement address for the graduating class at Lake Area Technical Institute.

The President’s remarks arepooled for TV and open to pre-credentialed stills and correspondents.
