Foxconn boss visits White House and tells Trump 'plant on track'

The two did not discuss Terry Gou's bid for Taiwan presidency, US side says

TAIPEI -- Foxconn Chairman Terry Gou met Donald Trump on Wednesday at the White House, reassuring the U.S. president that his company's massive investment in Wisconsin remains unchanged and also saying that he will not be a "trouble maker" if elected as Taiwan's president.

The tech tycoon's U.S. trip came after Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers in April said the state is renegotiating with Foxconn regarding its investment there -- a $10 billion project that Trump called the "eighth wonder in the world" at the groundbreaking in June 2018 that highlights the president's aim to bring manufacturing jobs back to the U.S. from Asia.
