July 17 (UPI) -- President Donald Trump will participate in a "Made in America" product showcase Monday.

Trump will examine U.S.-made products from all 50 states at the White House and on the South Lawn, and then will speak Monday afternoon on his administration's support of U.S. manufacturing companies.

The event, scheduled for 3 p.m., is part of "Made in America" week, starting Monday.

Trump wants to increase U.S. production by scaling back regulations and renegotiating the country's trade deals.

The Trump Organization has previously been criticized for outsourcing many of its products, including clothing and home decor.

Next week is called "American Heroes" week -- and is expected to focus on American jobs. The third week promoting Trump's agenda is devoted to the "American Dream," according to a White House official.

Past "theme weeks" included infrastructure, energy and technology.
