President Obama was doing more today in Michigan than talking about farm policy.
The president also met with Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan.
Over a lunch of salmon and rice, Duggan says the two men talked about improving Detroit’s economy.
“The conversation was very fast-paced. We exchanged a number of ideas on a number of strategies,” says Duggan. “You are going to see a continued partnership between the Obama administration and the city of Detroit.”
Duggan says the president asked him to send a specific economic strategy proposal to the White House in 90 days.
Duggan declined to say specifically what economic strategies to bring new jobs to Detroit were discussed.
