MONACA (AP) - President Donald Trump took credit Tuesday for the construction of a major manufacturing facility in western Pennsylvania as he tried to reinvigorate supporters in the rust belt towns that sent him to the White House in 2016.

Trump visited Shell's soon-to-be completed Pennsylvania Petrochemicals Complex, which will turn the area's vast natural gas deposits into plastics. The facility, which critics claim will become the largest air polluter in western Pennsylvania, is being built in an area hungry for investment.
