ARCHDALE, N.C. -- U.S. Senator Richard Burr (R-N.C.) is making a trip to Thomas Built Buses in Archdale Friday.
He's joining a group of about 100 students from area high schools to tour the facility for Manufacturing Day.
The idea is to show students the wide variety of careers available in manufacturing technologies.
Although Senator Burr was taking a break from Washington D.C. physically, he spoke to media about the latest on Capitol Hill, including the recent firing of former FBI Director James Comey.
"He's been more forthcoming with me than any FBI director in the 23 years I've been there," Burr explains, calling Comey one of the most straightforward public servants he's had the opportunity to work with.
He also adds President Donald Trump had every right to do what he did.
"Clearly the President lost trust in James Comey," he tells. "Why? That's a question the President will have to answer."
