    Trump has nothing to do with this. This deal was in negotiations for a couple years allready between Foxconn and Apple. The only open question left was where this project would be realized, depending on what state offered the biggest tax-incentive. Wisconsin apparantly made the best offer and beat Pennsylvania in the race.
    In 2014 when the talks started, Trump wasn't even known to run as POTUS.

    Yeah! That really put Trump in his place - I bet he's never been caught lying before. This'll be devastating for his presidency and he'll have to step down, all thanks to you, jrs77. :p:

    I don't need to put him into his place. He's perfectly capable of doing it himself ;)

    And god no, I hope he doesn't step down before his term is over in 2020. Because if he steps down, then we'll get Pence, which will be much worse, as Pence is actually capable of getting anything done/passed.
