Report: Major Announcement Likely at Trump’s Harrisburg, PA Rally Tonight
Guest post by Joe Hoft
President Trump is having a rally in Pennsylvania tonight after announcing he would not attend the White House Correspondent’s Dinner held at the same time in Washington, D.C. Trump is the first president in over thirty years to skip the dinner and the first to ‘counter-program’ opposite the dinner. Now it is suspected that the President may announce a major win for the US at his rally.
On this past Thursday the President met with Terry Gou, Chairman of Apple manufacturing partner Foxconn. The pair reportedly discussed US job creation and a pending bid for Toshiba’s chip business.
Citing people familiar with the matter, the Nikkei Asian Review reports Gou arranged the meeting with the help of SoftBank chairman Masayoshi Son, who previously met with Trump in New York last year. At the time, Trump touted SoftBank’s commitment of $50 billion to U.S. operations as part of an investment fund, a move that could create some 50,000 new jobs.
Focus China News Channel in Taiwan reported that billionaire Gou was seen walking out of the White House on Thursday.
In a Twitter Post, Washington Post reporter David Nakamura said: “Taiwanese tech billionaire Terry Gou who promised Trump…he’d invest billions in US visited the WH (White House) today.”
Speculation is that perhaps tonight, President Trump will announce that Foxconn will be building a plant in the US and maybe even in Pennsylvania in the coming months. If this is not the specific case, Gou has still promised investing billions in the US somewhere.
Winning, Winning, Winning!
