Foxconn chooses to play the Trump game

But does the Taiwanese manufacturing giant have a chance of winning?

Foxconn Chairman Terry Gou

TOKYO -- Terry Gou, chairman of Taiwanese tech giant Hon Hai Precision Industry, better known as Foxconn, appears poised to gamble on Donald Trump's "made in America" campaign, which has U.S. and foreign businesses alike lining up to please the new American president. But is he truly all-in? And if so, does he really have a chance of winning in this high-stakes game? 

Gou on Sunday said he is considering splashing out over $7 billion to build a liquid crystal display panel plant in the U.S. He said it would be a joint investment with Apple, Foxconn's paramount client.
