President Donald J. Trump and the Office of American Innovation welcomed Foxconn to the White House for a technology manufacturing initiative announcement in the East Room.  The announcement is one that will bring thousands of jobs and billions of dollars in investments to America.

Foxconn, a world leader in manufacturing for computers, communications, and consumer electronics, will build a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility for the production of LCD panel products in southern Wisconsin. This $10 billion investment will create thousands of new American jobs. The construction of this facility represents a major advancement in regaining America’s place in advanced electronics manufacturing.

The Milwaukee Business Journal is reporting:

Prominent Milwaukee business executive Ted Kellner will host a luncheon fundraiser with President Donald Trump in the Milwaukee area on the same day Trump is expected to visit Wisconsin for the Foxconn Technology Group groundbreaking ceremony in Mount Pleasant.

Ahh, Foxconn.  That would be the project newspapers all across the state are on a daily crusade to torpedo with the ringleader being the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Can’t let a certain administration get any credit whatsoever for any economic success, can we.

That brings us to today’s read, from Jenny Trick, Executive Director of the Racine County Economic Development Corporation.

Recently, I attended a Wisconsin Technology Council luncheon featuring University of South Carolina economist Joey Von Nessen and was struck by the parallels between BMW’s investment and impact in South Carolina and the transformational development underway here in Wisconsin with Foxconn’s planned investment.

You won’t see this kind of analysis in the Journal Sentinel.
