Trump speaks on Foxconn at governors meeting

By  | 

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Gov. Scott Walker was in D.C. on Monday discussing infrastructure and the Foxconn deal with President Donald Trump.

The president met with governors at the White House, after his administration detailed a plan to roll out $1.5 trillion in infrastructure spending over 10 years.
A total of $200 billion would come from direct federal spending, while providing incentives that would require state and local governments to match federal grants or partner with private companies.

President Trump also discussed the important role he says he played in negotiating the Foxconn deal.

“Fantastic thing and everyone wanted Foxconn. Frankly, they weren’t going to come to this country. I hate to say it: if I didn't get elected, they wouldn't be in this country. They would not have done this in this country. I think you know that very well,” said Trump.

Foxconn is building a manufacturing plant in Racine County, which is expected to employ 13,000 people.
