Foxconn chairman Gou meets with Trump on Wisconsin project

WASHINGTON, May 2 (Reuters) - Foxconn chairman Terry Gou met at the White House with President Donald Trump to discuss the status of the company’s planned investment in Wisconsin, the company said Thursday.

The White House repeatedly refused to confirm if any visit was planned and did not immediately respond to a request for comment Thursday. Gou has said he plans to run for president of Taiwan. Foxconn had pledged to create 13,000 jobs and build a $10 billion campus in Wisconsin but it has not met early hiring targets and has said it has been reconsidering its plans.
