MORE WINNING! Foxconn Announces New Multi-Billion Dollar Plant in Michigan

Two weeks after announcing its $10 billion plant in Wisconsin Foxconn announced plans for a new multibillion dollar plant in Michigan.

The new plants will boost jobs and lift the economy in two states Donald Trump won in 2016.

IPhone maker says it’s building a multibillion-dollar facility – in another state Trump flipped from CNBC.

The Michigan plant will focus on autonomous vehicles.
CNBC reported:

Taiwan’s Foxconn, one of Apple’s primary iPhone makers, will open a multibillion-dollar research and development plant in Michigan, the South China Morning Post reported on Sunday.

That makes the second politically critical state to receive such a commitment from the multinational — which is sure to be seen by many as a gargantuan political success for President Donald Trump.

The Michigan facility will be focused on autonomous vehicles, the SCMP said, citing Foxconn founder Terry Gou.

“Automotive development in the U.S. is still more advanced than China,” Gou was quoted as saying. “Besides self-driving technology, I’m also interested in artificial intelligence and deep learning technology.”

No details into the investment amount were provided.

The news comes nearly two weeks after Foxconn announced a $10 billion Wisconsin plant. That’s expected to create 3,000 American jobs, with the potential to eventually expand to 13,000 jobs.
