June 8, 2011 - 2:13 AM

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama will stress the importance of training U.S. workers to better compete for global manufacturing jobs during a visit to a community college in suburban Washington on Wednesday.

Obama will discuss how a vibrant manufacturing sector not only will strengthen the U.S. economy and put Americans back to work, but also is critical to the nation's success as it competes in the global economy.

After lunch with Vice President Joe Biden and a meeting with senior advisers, the president will welcome the 2010 BCS National Championship Auburn University football team to the White House.

Later in the afternoon, Obama will meet with President Goodluck Jonathan of Nigeria in the Oval Office.
