ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: U.S. President Donald Trump hosted an event at the White House on Wednesday (July 26) with Taiwanese electronics manufacturer Foxconn which announced plans to build a multi-billion dollar flat panel screen plant in Wisconsin. Foxconn, a major supplier to Apple for its iPhones, is formally known as Hon Hai Precision Industry. It said last month it plans to invest more than $10 billion in a display-making factory in the United States. "If I didn't get elected, he definitely would not be spending 10 billion dollars," Trump said during the statement. The factory is expected initially to create 3,000 jobs and produce computer and TV screens.
