This will be one of the largest jobs ever built in the world. It will be the Taiwanese company's first plant outside of Asia, producing LCD panels for TVs and computers. Thank you. As Foxconn has discovered there is no better place to build, hire, and grow than right here in the United States Wisconsin Governor, Scott Walker, says the project will transform his state. We couldn't be more proud to have Foxconn's 8k technology LCD panels for the first time ever outside of Asia made in the USA President Trump takes credit for the enormous Foxconn project as part of the promised revival of American manufacturing, but the deal has drawn both praise and protest in Wisconsin. Opponents say taxpayers are paying for billions in incentives, that Foxconn is being allowed to skirt environmental laws and won't deliver on all those jobs. I'm gonna bring suit to stop it based on the fact that it's an illegal contract, unconstitutional contract. While in this confrence, the president took aim at the Milwaukee based Harley Davidson for planning to move some jobs overseas.
