Report: White House To Announce $10 Billion Foxconn Manufacturing Investment in Wisconsin…

Various business news media are reporting the 5:00pm White House announcement on jobs and manufacturing in the U.S. will center around a $10 billion investment in U.S. manufacturing by Foxconn, most noted as the production company for Apple iPhones.

In the larger picture the anticipated announcement is further evidence in the flow of capital into a U.S. manufacturing economy being resurrected by the America-First economic policy of President Trump.

Additionally, there is a political win for DC professional GOPe politicians like Paul Ryan as the manufacturing hub is anticipated to be located in Ryan’s district and hometown.

(Via Bloomberg) President Donald Trump will announce Wednesday that Foxconn Technology Group plans a new factory in Wisconsin, fulfilling the Taiwanese manufacturing giant’s promise to invest in the U.S.

The factory will open in the home district of House Speaker Paul Ryan, a Wisconsin Republican, who personally lobbied Trump and White House chief of staff Reince Priebus to help secure the plant. It’s expected to employ about 3,000 people at first and, after an initial $10 billion investment, the facility is scheduled to expand over a 2 1/2-year period, according to a person familiar with the plans who requested anonymity to discuss the announcement before it was made.

Foxconn chairman Terry Gou plans to join Trump, Ryan, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, and Vice President Mike Pence at the White House to make the announcement.

The company has said it hopes to increase its investment in U.S. manufacturing, with a focus on building flat-panel screens. Economic development officials from Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Wisconsin have all vied for Foxconn’s attention.

[…] Trump had noticed vacant land during an April visit to Kenosha County.

“He said, ‘That land should be used.’ So when Foxconn came into the White House, into the Oval Office, the president said, ’I know a good spot that you should go to, that place in Kenosha,’” Priebus said. (read more)

    Paul Ryan, the typical communist liberal that he is, takes credit for what President Trump did.

    And Ryan will bring in even more foreign workers and illegals for the factory claiming American citizens are not trained to do the work.

      Nahhh… just robots and techs to fix robots. There will be a lot of support staff. Probably not a lot of line workers.

      The real worry is if they are going to let the robots choose one of 57 genders. I see trouble ahead 😜

    I suppose “Master of The Deal” Paul Ryan guaranteed that the taxpayers of Wisconsin would make up any shortfalls in Foxconn revenues should there be an operating loss? Maybe throw in no state income taxes on the Foxconn executives to sweeten the pot?

    Of course there is the bog-standard property tax relief for 25 years. Every taxing district throws that in when trying to attract business.

    Still, it’s good news for the techs that needed to keep the robots up and running.

    President Trump is doing this for the people of Wisconsin but Ryan the snake will make it about him. McCain is out there saying not so fast on the trans ban in the military even after PDJT is gracious to him. He also voted NO on the repeal.

    It doesn’t matter how good PDJT treats the swamp creatures, they will always be rats.

      Yes you are right. I think the best way to look at this development is that PDJT put a coin in the grinder monkey’s hat. Time for Ryan to dance. FoxConn does not come to Wisconsin without PDJT. Ryan’s district cries out for lost manufacturing. If MAGA has any meaning, it lives in rust belt districts such as Ryan’s. Ryan is now tied to PDJT. PDJT gave to Ryan expecting nothing in return. I expect PDJT to campaign in Janesville within the week. This is a very big MAGA win.

      Ryan is no friend to American workers.

      “Then in 2008, Janesville saw 5,000 jobs at GM and other auto-related companies disappear from the community, the Journal Sentinel reports.

      Last November, Oscar Meyer announced that it was shutting down its headquarters in Madison, “wiping out hundreds of jobs at a company that has been a part of the community’s fabric since 1919,” the Associated Press wrote.

      Yet Paul Ryan has been one of Congress’ leading champions for globalist trade policies that impact American jobs and American workers.
      Last year, Ryan served as President Obama’s “partner” in his effort to fast track the Trans-Pacific Partnership— even though Wisconsin suffered a net loss of nearly 40,000 jobs in 2015 alone due to the U.S. trade deficit with TPP countries, according to the Economic Policy Institute.

      In 1999, the year Paul Ryan took office, the U.S. trade deficit in goods with China was $68.7 billion. By 2015, our trade deficit in goods with China had ballooned to $367.2 billion.

      In 2015, Ryan pushed to fast track the Trans-Pacific Partnership even as President Obama was indicating that China could eventually join the TPP.

      As the elected representative of Wisconsin’s first Congressional District, Ryan has presided over the shuttering of factories that had previously been fixtures of the community for decades. Ryan watched as many of these companies shipped his constituents’ jobs overseas.

            No doubt… they are at the mercy of the 1 billion pound gorilla. Point is they are Taiwanese
            not Mainland and they are increasing their military spending to 3 % of GDP to counter the Reds militarization of the South China Sea.

            “Taiwan plans to raise military spending by about 50 percent next year as President Tsai Ing-wen attempts to offset China’s growing might and support the local defense industry.”

            We have a “security partnership” with Taiwan even though we do not formally recognize them diplomatically.

            Have to wonder why the reds have gone all this time without trying to invade and occupy Taiwan–I’ve always thought is was b/c Taiwan has secret nukes, USA ally, and ultimately still has a whole lot of stroke with people stuck on the mainland–they might see how much better life is for Taiwanese and figure the invasion and occupation needs to go the other way. Total armchair views, but ya gotta admit, it’s weird there’s such a huge power disparity on the surface, yet nothing happens but saber rattling. Sounds a lot like a MAD situation to this boomer.

Maybe some strategery–get Ryan wet for Foxconn, then when he pulls some uniparty BS, pull it down to Shreveport/Bossier or (gag) Monroe, LA. Then laugh as his constituency realizes he’s the problem and Nehlen or another Trumpist challenger is the solution.

    I think of that scripture about heaping coals of fire on their heads.

    … you know…. by being nice to your enemies.

    Prv 25:21-2
