TOKYO -- Toyota Motor will invest $391 million into its Texas truck plant by 2021, in an apparent effort to stay in U.S. President Donald Trump's good books as his administration negotiates a trade deal with Japan.

The San Antonio factory has been operating since 2006 and assembles full-size Tundra and midsize Tacoma pickup trucks. Toyota plans to install new equipment and improve production efficiency.
