The first daughter also tweeted about Indiana's economic success ahead of her visit on Wednesday.
"The Indiana Success Story," she wrote. "Since the election: Monthly initial claims for unemployment insurance [down] by 14.1 [percent]. Employment [up] by 2.3 [percent, which] = 73,000 NEW jobs. Nominal avg. hourly earnings [up] by 4 [percent]. Total real wage [and] salary income grew 2 [percent]. Let’s [keep] winning the Hoosier State!"
Trump also announced Wednesday's meeting along with photos from a previous National Council for the American Worker event.
"Tomorrow we will host our 4th American Workforce Policy Advisory Board in Indianapolis, Indiana! Excited to discuss the progress made in giving every American the opportunity to succeed in the hottest economy," she wrote.
Trump will stay in Indianapolis until Thursday to discuss opportunities for American workers. She will also tour the prison on Thursday with co-chairs Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross and Director of the Domestic Policy Council Joseph Grogan.
The National Council for the American Worker was developed in 2018 by President Trump's administration to ensure that American workers take advantage of the country's recent economic success.
