President Donald Trump is claiming victory as Taiwanese manufacturing giant Foxconn announced it would invest $10 billion in the United States and build a new factory employing at least 3,000 workers in Wisconsin. The Foxconn plant would make LCD displays used in computer screens, televisions, and vehicle dashboards.
Trump said the investment will create 3,000 jobs at a minimum "with the potential for up to 13,000 in very near future".
After the announcement in Washington D.C. with President Trump, Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele and Governor Walker on hand, Walker called the decision a quote "once in a century opportunity for the state and the country".
Priebus had previously hinted that Wisconsin could be the victor of the multistate competition for the new factory from Foxconn, best known for its role assembling Apple's iPhones. Foxconn has said publicly that it is looking at seven states for an investment of $10 billion or more to manufacture flat-panel screens and related equipment.
The 20-million-square-foot facility will be located in the district of House Speaker Paul Ryan, who was on hand to announce the deal at the White House today, alongside Gov.
Foxconn's plans would fulfill a promise Trump made in June during a visit to Waukesha County, when he said he and Walker were negotiating to bring a "major, incredible manufacturer" to the state.
Now with Foxconn's announcement, it is unclear if Trump was referring to this production facility.
Wisconsin is one of the key states, including Pennsylvania and MI, which swung the election for Trump last November. "In other words, if I didn't get elected he definitely would not be spending $10 billion dollars", said President Trump.
The Governor of Wisconsin, Scott Walker, said the average salary for the 13,000 workers will be $53,000 plus benefits.
