I have had a great relationship and Terry was thinking about and Mazda song do you do you want to talk about another successful guy he was in my office he said that a friend of mine said it up it said I want to invest 50 billion dollars in the United States I said you owe me 50 but give me 50 million about a five-minute meeting and so I thought he was saying but I heard about him he along with her the best friends he came out and I said so good what are you going to invested you said yes we’re going to I said you can do that for 50 minutes I’m going to invest 50 billion any misrepresent it to me because he’s representing I can tell you he did because he spent much more than 50 billion dollars in the United States and that was two years ago and now they’re going to do a lot more cuz I want to thank my son my saw you back there come come I got to get him up here come on up here Mazda if you can understand what I’m saying it doesn’t play games doesn’t like small numbers right you proud of Terry say something about Terry, she is my best friend and we have the brothers so I promised the first time I met the president Trump just before you became official present I think I was the first and I said 50 billion dollar investment and 50000 job to the United States because I said I couldn’t have decided such a thing for this new president because I said now I see the passion I see the opportunity I’m more energized so I promise and now I’m they’re making great success and I said I have one more thing to promise which is Foxconn so those three things I promised and I did not have official official parmesan from Petty but I promise I’m so happy today that my promise so this is a great historical moment because I think United States did not have the echo system for new technology last 20 years and now this is the beginning of new ecosystem of high-tech manufacturing back into the United States thank you MRSA what are the great businessman of the world also those two that is some combination standing backstage I said woah but they like each other they love each other and his 50 billion turned out p72 billion so far. Finished yet and that doesn’t include Foxconn so big stuff I want to thank another very special man I hope he can hear me cuz I wanted to come on Sage because I handed the ball over there he’s a friend of mine and I recommended Wisconsin this case and I’ll be recommending Ohio and I’ll be recommending Pennsylvania I’ll be recommending Iowa and I’ll be recommend but this was something that just seemed right and the reason is that you have a car plant in a very nice location and I flew over that plan with other great wisconsinite rights you know right good man I think he’s around here something he’s a great guy and I said that would be a good side the only problem was 100 the size of what they did hear you going to put one of the smaller buildings on that side this is big stuff but I handed it over I should Terry that this place is such a great place you know I just realized the other day they told me I didn’t when we won the state of Wisconsin it hadn’t been won by a republican since Dwight D Eisenhower in 1952 did you know that and I won Wisconsin and I like Wisconsin a lot but we won Wisconsin and Ronald Reagan remember Wisconsin was the state that Ronald Reagan did not win and I was a 1952 and I got to know the people here they’re incredible and I said to Terry this would be an incredible place then I started hearing the magnitude of what he’s doing this is magnitude like nobody’s ever seen some of you have been able to see it and this is just the beginning this is just the absolute beginning but I had this incredible company going to invest some place in the world not here I will tell you they wouldn’t have done it here except that I became president so that what they wanted to do it someplace now in the United States and I immediately thought of the state of Wisconsin Terry came up fell in love with the people fell in love with the location fell in love the concept here there is going to make robotics hear they’re doing many other things putting full television sets they’re doing many things here and they’ll do a lot of expansion but I had a hand off the ball and in private life you know and off the ball and sometimes they do a good job and sometimes it’s like what happened didn’t work out why didn’t it work out because it didn’t know what they were doing and sometimes that happens and there are very few Governors that I could have said good luck you’re going to build one of the largest operations in the world over 20 million feet good luck I gave it to Scott Walker he literally didn’t have to make a phone call to me for the last year-and-a-half he is a unbelievably talented guy I’m telling you Scott Walker well thanks mr. president you mentioned you got the ball rolling Foxconn will not be in America if not for you April 27th when you met with Terry go and told him about Nelly being in America but told him there was that pretty good site that’s the honest truth in fact the only thing we said was we got to get a bigger site than that because this is much bigger than thoughts and your team your team in the White House said Jared your cabinet your everybody was just hands on deck great team effort here and that 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 probably here in the state of Wisconsin thank you mr. president football Sanders NFL status who ran for about two thousand yards in one game special guy special talent it will come back to haunt me he is a special talent that is special person as Foxconn has discovered there is no better place to build higher and growth and right here in the United States America is open for business more than it has ever been open for business between Arlo taxes are cutting of regulations will not finish with the regulation and we’ll have regulation but it’s sensible regulation you’ll be able to get things approved quickly or just approved sometimes it’s going to be disapproved we have clean air we have Crystal Clean Water we going to do all of the things you have to do but we’re going to speed up the process as you have people that wanted to be glad like this it would have taken him 25 years to get approvals 25 years they got them almost immediately and the federal government had a lot to say we had to get going and they did and here we are and they’re starting other section right now so we’re open for business made in the USA it’s all happening and it’s happening very very quickly we created 3.4 million jobs since the election include over 300,000 manufacturing jobs and as you saw the recent poll just came out the highest percentage of Happiness by manufacturers in the history of the poll which is a very old Pole unemployment claims are the lowest they’ve been in 44 years unemployment for African-Americans is at the lowest level in history unemployment for hispanic-americans the lower level in history unemployment among women and I’ve been saying it is just changed today is at the lowest level and I’ve been telling you 21 years it’s now it lowest level in 65 years and it’s going to be in history very soon history sounds even better but the workers after 20 years wages are rising I used to say they did better 20 years ago then they did two years ago now they’re starting to do better and they having their choice of jobs where they can enjoy what they’re doing and a recent study found that 95% a manufacturers they want to get going and they’re going to get going and we have a lot of these things happening in the United States but to me this is always going to be the special one because people that are highly sophisticated business people that have come out to look at a friend came out 2 weeks ago because he heard about it he’s a highly sophisticated business person that you will know he could not believe it he called me up and you would love to tell me nothing he’s that kind of a guy. Really nice guy but he’s a great businessman he could not believe what he’s saying we are demanding from foreign countries Brandon faux fair and reciprocal trade we have been very much taken advantage of as a country we have lost our companies we lost our jobs they build a product they send it in that’s why this is so beautiful because this is his greatest there is anywhere in the world and we do it within our country and I just want to let you know we put tariffs on steel and aluminum those businesses are through the roof you are still called me up there expanding or opening 6 plants they haven’t done that in 35 years Georgetown Steel South Carolina closed for years ago closed and shuttered their open for business 600 people that’s happening all over the country all over the country I’m doing it level out the playing field in all of the things you hear some I mean frankly the smart people love it some people don’t understand it but we’re going to be treated fairly when are great farmers in Iowa Wisconsin upper New York State when we want to sell our dairy products into Canada they charge us 275% 275 percent what they’re saying is we don’t want your product cuz he was going to pay then so we can level out the playing field folks they send us a lot of stuff no tax going to work it out going to be friendly we love Canada we love can I love Kevin going to work it out Mexico last year made a hundred billion dollars plus they have a 17% almost backpacks that nobody would think we were behind the 8-ball cuz that text was there at the beginning right from the beginning we were behind the Mexico wants to make a deal going to make a deal with China a lot of respect vagina I think it’s great and president XI I think he’s great he’s a friend of mine but we lost 500 billion dollars over the last number of years five hundred billion dollars a year we help to rebuild a China someday they’ll say thank you but we don’t want to do that anymore we want to have a fair and balanced situation but immediately but has to be fair because our country is never done better than it’s doing right now European Union last year trade imbalance we had a deficit of 151 billion dollars they send us Mercedes they send us by the millions the BMW’s cars by the millions we send them a bushel of corn and they rejected they have a better they don’t want to core okay I understand but you know if you don’t want our Agricultural Product we don’t want your car’s I mean you know it’s that such a complicated formula and they’re going to come back and they’re going to say let’s talk frankly don’t tell him set it but they already have don’t ever tell them I said that he’ll screw up my negotiations but we’re doing good your opinion and many many other we’ve actually made a deal with South Korea we took the deal I expired was a terrible deal it was supposed to give us 250,000 jobs done by Hillary Clinton and she was right it didn’t give 250,000 jobs so she was right it gave it to South Korea. The US this was not a good deal but we renegotiated the deal is subject to shining I always say subject Sonic has lots of things happen and if it did happen that’s fine but we made a new deal was Jazz created wonderful day of football and our Farmers now are protected and are tariffs which has been paid for years which was firing has not been extended for a long period of time or trucks at the center of America’s economic Resurgence of the massive tax cuts that I signed into law 6 months ago we / tax rates for individuals we did numbers for business we did tremendous tremendous amount of work and the largest tax cut ever approved ever gotten in the hit tax cuts in tax reform included in there is Anwar the largest drilling site potentially in the world in Alaska and we got rid of the individual mandate which is going to be wait for the people here and the people that work here in other words we got rid of obamacare’s individual mandate where you have the privilege of paying a lot of money for not having to buy Health Care thinking think of that one you paid a lot of money not to have help so it’s gone most unpopular provision in Obamacare by 4 and ObamaCare is largely gone now we’re opening up secretary acosta’s here secretary Azar’s here we’re opening up unbelievable Healthcare cross state lines highly-competitive really great Healthcare everyone’s competing for it all of the insured companies that dying to get it they all want to compete the cost to go to be low and it’s costing our country nothing nothing and it’s so much better than any form of insurance we have Association and then start is yours coming out in three weeks with a massive plan you won’t believe it and we did repeal and replace Obamacare unfortunately one Senator decided to put the thumb down late in the morning and that was not a good thing put that thumb down but we made up for and in many ways more than made up for it but that was a sad day to me but we repealed and replaced but now we have something that ultimately I think he’s going to be better and that’s what we do today was seeing the results of the pro American agenda America First make America great again or those at greatest Rays ever used in politics I suspect that’s the greatest makeamericagreatagain so what are we using in 2 years to help you can you believe two and a half years so soon you know what the phrase is right keep America great of course! Keep because we can’t stay and two years so you were here for four years we can’t say make America great again but when you look at what we’re doing it’s very simple it’s called keep America great will get your nice hats maybe we’ll make them green this time instead of green representing cash state-of-the-art Alcides adding an average of 3.4 billion dollars to the state’s economy every single year and by the way I don’t know this but I understand life and I understand politics I guess I wouldn’t be here it is short for the time I must have potential right cuz here we are all together but I assume the Democrats are probably saying No Deal is any good you know they say you need any did you do you know the Democrats is headed by Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters you know they have a new leader Maxine Waters but I assume you know cuz I have no idea what the deal is we had a couple of them recently a trade deal and one of the Democrats got up that deal doesn’t work it’s and he didn’t know the deal nobody ever showed until we didn’t know the deal cuz we hadn’t even negotiated it yet but that’s the way they say always will deals ever what this is going to do and and I don’t even know that anybody is critical of it I can’t imagine they couldn’t I know that Terry’s investing 10 billion dollars in the state billion dollars credible so even at this early stage the economic benefits of this new plant or being felt in 60 of Wisconsin’s 72 counties already in another three weeks it’ll be 72 Foxconn has already contracted 27 local Wisconsin companies to begin construction of the main facility is this is this is just a toy compared to the main facility and I’m pleased to report that Foxconn and tends to build 100% of the factory with beautiful American Concrete add beautiful American steel made right here so important are steel industrial aluminum interesting or solar panel industry coming back to come back fast what are the many people here with us today who will benefit from this plant is Celia Griffin she is a mother of three and a member of the international Union of operating engineers local 139 Syria could you come up tell us what this Foxconn job this incredible this really incredible plant has done for you and for your family Syria hello everyone giving honor to God I started in 2005 as an hour an engineer and Hoffman construction gave me my first job and I’ll Haul truck I went on from there to work for gilbane building a Northwest Mutual Towers in Milwaukee now that your families are together and they brought me to Fox come to work in the Haul truck again and me and my family are grateful and very pleased to be at home again thank you everyone thank you. thank you Sylvia we want to tell by the way Harley-Davidson please build those beautiful motorcycles in the USA please okay don’t get cute with us don’t get cute they don’t realize the taxes are coming way down they don’t realize it but a lot of time with them build them in the USA your customers won’t be happy if you don’t I’ll tell you that now let’s hear from. after she and her husband Dave worked hard to raise three beautiful children doing recently decided to take advantage of the new job opportunities that Foxconn created right here in Wisconsin and I’d like to have can you come up please where are you good hi Don hi so did you receive any of my tweets president Trump you did stay at home mom turned into Foxconn Builder I would just like to thank Hoffman for giving me the opportunity to start something new what a perfect way than Foxconn it was super excited when I heard it was coming in our area thank you job well Chris Koski one of the project managers of this site who has really done a fantastic job Chris please hello everybody so one of the best parts of my job is getting to put these teams together it’s one thing to build them it’s analytical we look at pictures and then we make them real thing in the real world but in order to do that I need currently 110 people to help me every day and they show up early and they go home late and we spend time together probably more time together than we spend with our families but they’re there ever single day and they do everything that we ask and we get the job done on time and that’s that’s the part that makes it special so we get together out there everyday and we make sure care for each other take care of each other we actually treat it like it’s family it’s a dangerous job in some ways but we look out for each other and I just think that it’s probably the best thing I’ve really been doing this since I was about 10 years old and I can’t believe I’m standing here talking to y’all today about it so Foxconn is probably one of the best things that’s ever happened to Hoffman construction and certainly Chris kosky and I appreciate the opportunity present president Trump thank you very much scared I’m going to hop on that plane I’m going back to Washington and we’re going to pick ourselves one great United States Supreme Court Justice to take the place great man Justice Kennedy really a great person great man I’m so honored that he decided to do this during our term and I think that’s your confidence in US he is a very special person special man Justice Kennedy and just remember that damn he’s done some very important decisions very important things highly respected and we love them so we’ll be but will be picking somebody and will be hopefully making you very proud so important you know when I ran for president I started hearing outside of obviously defense all of them the most important decision president could make is the picking of United States Supreme Court Justices if you’re lucky enough to do that we had a fantastic choice with Justice Gorsuch very proud of it doing fantastic job and we’re going to try and do just as good so we’re going to start working on that process we’ve already started and hopefully we’re going to make you very proud so Justin finishing I want to say that today’s groundbreaking is only one part of the exciting story that is playing out across our nation Chrysler is Shifting production from Mexico to Michigan Toyota and Mazda will build a new facility in Alabama beautiful facility and with many other companies coming and not only the car companies but this is where the action is I go around and I see the leaders of different countries and they say congratulations on the great economic success that you’re having in the United States and we have an economy that’s almost twice the size of China and much larger than any other you think we’ve made so much progress in the last year-and-a-half it’s but it’s in this position and we’re going up nobody’s ever seen anything like it and watch those GDP numbers we started off at a very low number and right now we had a 3.2 nobody thought that was possible in four years but I think it’s going to go a lot higher than that so you watch those numbers each point is 3 trillion dollars and 10 minute just remember that each point and we already had a 3.2 and I think we’re going to be seeing for that I think our secretary Secretary of the Treasury right stay by Mike okay saying that say that’s my that’s my project I think that’s your projection to Steve mnuchin that’s his projection to you better be right in the first quarter of this year’s American companies repatriated a record 300 billion dollars that would have never come back to this country its overseas profit bringing the money back home to our country where it belongs I think we’re going to have three maybe four trillion dollars before that’s all over it was impossible to bring the money back virtually for a lot of reasons now they’re coming back back Apple as you know Terry makes out of the product laptop iPhone makes a lot of them for apple and apple spending 350 billion dollars billion there’s another case I would have been happy with 350 million right but they’re spending 350 billion on plans on building an incredible campus and Terry is very happy about that we’re also reclaiming our country’s proud manufacturing Legacy that’s why it’s important that we open up our steel mills again we need that for purposes of Defense we need that for purposes of Legacy we’re restoring America’s industrial might thanks for the hard-working Patriots like you were making america-greater that ever before it’s greater than ever before very shortly it’s all happening you see it happening you see what’s going on they’re all coming back the place they want to be the Foxconn and to Terry go and all of the amazing Wisconsin workers with us today at all over this thing I want to wish you good luck congratulations on truly one of the 8th Wonder I think we can say this is we can say the 8th Wonder of the world wonder of the world but this is something so special so I wanted to congratulate you all you’re very special people and a very special day thank you very much thank you to Scott Walker thank you everybody great honor to be with you good luck enjoy this great facility thank you
