It was an honor to help cut the ribbon on the new @blueorigin rocket engine plant in Huntsville this morning. This plant, and the other high tech industries that are moving here and expanding here, are a testament to how I believe this new decade is going to be Alabama's decade. pic.twitter.com/6KkDTV77vi
