Trump Expected To Make Foxconn Announcement Today

7/26/17 – President Donald Trump will apparently get to make the announcement that Foxconn has chosen Wisconsin for its new U-S electronics plant. Trump’s schedule has a “jobs announcement” for 5pm today (Wednesday) in the East Room of the White House — and media reports say a follow up program is planned Thursday at the Milwaukee Art Museum. Trump told the Wall Street Journal Tuesday that the Taiwanese Foxconn is “strongly considering” a Wisconsin location for a plant that could hire five-to-ten-thousand workers, rumored to be in Racine or Kenosha counties. The Journal Sentinel says Foxconn could be in line for a one-to-three-billion-dollar package of federal, state, and local incentives. Chief of staff Reince Priebus says Trump started talks with Foxconn in April when he visited Snap On Tools in Kenosha — and he told a Waukesha audience in mid June that Governor Scott Walker would get a “very happy surprise” when a plant he didn’t disclose would knock on the state’s door.
