NEW YORK/TOKYO -- Promising to be "the greatest jobs producer that God ever created," President-elect Donald Trump has vowed to keep pressuring companies to return production to the U.S., setting his sights on the pharmaceutical industry after his open attacks on automakers.

Trump on Wednesday held his first news conference since last November's election. He used the long-awaited appearance at Trump Tower, his headquarters and home in New York, to tout what he called "great news over the last couple of weeks," including plans by Ford Motor and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles to invest in auto production in the U.S. He said he "appreciates" both automakers' moves, which came after the president-elect publicly blasted the companies on Twitter for moving production abroad.
