“I recommended Wisconsin in this case,” the President said of his previous conversations with Foxconn Chairman Terry Gou.
“I’ll be recommending Ohio, I’ll be recommending Pennsylvania, and I’ll be recommending Iowa,” Trump added. All three states, along with Wisconsin, were considered toss-up’s that Trump won in the 2016 election.
The President praised the state of the American economy.
“America is open for businesses, more than it’s ever been open for business before,” Trump said. “Between our low taxes, our cutting of regulations - and we’re not finished with the regulations yet.”
He also praised Gou and Governor Scott Walker for finalizing the Foxconn deal. The President equated it to him “handing off the ball” to Walker and Gou.
