The 787-10 can carry 330 passengers, 14 percent more than the 787-9. The jet can also carry 15 percent more cargo and is ten percent more efficient in terms of fuel and emissions.

Trump became the first sitting president to visit the Boeing facility in Charleston.

The president spoke during the ceremony, along with Boeing President and CEO Dennis Muilenburg, and South Carolina’s new Gov. Henry McMaster.

After touring the facility with daughter Ivanka and reviewing the new Dreamliner, the president said, "That is one beautiful airplane."

During his speech, Trump said his presidency is strongly focused on creating jobs in the United States. He said under his administration, more companies are bringing work back to the U.S. and "they're going to be very happy about it."

"We're going to fight for every last American job," he said.
