VIDEO: President Trump Welcomes 15,000 Jobs To Wisconsin
“Since President Trump took office, more than 300,000 new manufacturing jobs have been created in the United States.”
– Secretary Wilbur Ross
Foxconn Investment is Sign of More to Come
By Secretary Wilbur Ross Jr., June 28, 2018
The groundbreaking on Foxconn’s $10-billion factory to produce state-of-the-art flat-panel displays in Mount Pleasant represents a milestone for America. With a 20-million-square-foot campus situated on 3,000 acres, the new Foxconn plant will be among the largest factories ever built in the United States. It will take two years and 10,000 construction workers to build, and employ 13,000 workers when in full production of a variety of LCD screens. It is one of the largest foreign direct investments ever made in the United States.
It would never have happened without the promise of the Trump tax cuts and the President’s personal intervention. As important as the new factory is to the workers of Wisconsin, the facility is also a symbol of what is to come: It is the first of a large number of investments in advanced manufacturing facilities being reshored from overseas locations back to the United States. Foxconn CEO Terry Gou has already said that he is considering another enormous facility in the United States.
The active role President Trump and his administration have taken in economic development was another deciding factor. President Trump met with Mr. Gou more than half a dozen times over the last 14 months, impressing upon him the benefits of creating jobs in the United States, and producing in a market of 325 million consumers. Those meetings were followed with weekly calls between Trump administration officials and Foxconn executives. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker was instrumental as well in selling the virtues of Wisconsin as a business-friendly state and providing the financial incentives needed to seal the deal that will create a large-scale high-tech innovation hub.

Over TWO MILLION jobs created in 2016 with Obama as president. In ONE YEAR.
yeah. hamburger flippers
2 Million Jobs created and yet we still had the highest Unemployment Rate in Decades, Please explain that if you will.
Most of them were either PART-TIME or Government jobs! My granddaughter’s husband was working (and still is) about 20 hours a week at Lowe’s. I understand he is now working ALMOST 30 hours a week – and hopes, someday to get a full-time, permanent job with them. He’s not the brightest bulb on the tree but works hard and tries very hard to be a good father and husband. Now, of course, he makes sooooo much money he has lost his MEDICAID and so has to pay through the nose for health insurance. So for them – so far, it’s been a total loss!
Prove it Linda Olson…Obama was the only President in my life time (64 y/o) to be propped up by a fake media. We were constantly being told of fake stats. Voted democrat all my life….but no more.
I’m old enough to remember – vaguely – FDR. Talk about being propped up by the media. But not to the extent of Obama. Also, the media had a love affair with Kennedy, and hid a lot of his shenanigans. He DID a lot of the things they TRY to pin on Trump and can’t! Tee Hee Hee!
I would love to learn that American investors are building plants.
Or even bringing them home!!! – From Mexico, Viet Nam, Cambodia, China, and all those other places they sent our jobs during the lase 90’s and early 2000’s. Bush -1, Clinton, Bush-2 & Obama – ALL four were happy to send our jobs overseas! As much as I detested Obama, I can’t blame him for all of it. He was just the last one – so far!!!
Every day that I wake up and Donald Trump is our President is a great day!
