  1. They're all con artist. The company's credit rating likely went upward and the suckers/municipal government got theirs downgraded. That sounds like a trump deal alright

  2. Never trust the Chinese. They are shady AF. They have a 2 track mind and most of time only tell you things what you want to hear. I should know as I am Asian growing up with my Asian roots on one side and my white wash roots on the other side.

  3. The worst thing about nice people is that they can't come to the realization that there are more sinister, evil, narcesistic, sociopathic, apathetic and heartless people in America than them. Everything Trump has done was geared to give the ultra wealthy and corporate America the leverage they needed to abuse and cheat the American people and cash in on all levels.

  4. Agold Twittler has now turned into Agolf Trump Swindler after Foxconn helped him con the voters of this area into voting for this serial liar.

  5. Does anybody know trump's history business plants they are all failure and the funny part he uses other people money

  6. As SOON AS THE COUNTRY AND ALL THERE PEOPLES ADMIT THAT THEIR PRESIDENT MUST BE DISPOSED THEN THIS COUNTRY WILL UNITE AND RESETTLE ALL THE COUNTRIES VALUED WE THE PEOPLE FOR THE PEOPLE WERE FOUNDED ON AS COUNTRY

  7. I love to see liberals get their feathers ruffled because they can't get socialism in America. As the president said, if you don't like America and our president, there are a number of communist and socialist countries you can go to. Let see if you get the same treatment from them if you talk bad about your country. As an independent voter I have voted Dem and republican from time to time. Knowing you all would rather have the Gov take care of you and sit on your butts, I will never vote Dem again no matter how good their policy, because I know you are the party of control and yes the party that started slavery and kept it going. You all just can't admit it. Conservatives are who brought this country together and will keep it together. Dems will destroy and separate the nation to keep control of people and hold onto power.

  8. This is what you get for trusting a con man. Of course they are going to say the end of 2020, Trump needs help to get re-elected.

  9. Why can't the feminist media hire older, uglier reporters and broadcasters? I thought they cared about all women…

  10. President Trump / Former Wisconsin Gov Scott Walker , two pees in a pod, two F–King Dipsh!ts

  11. How is this Trumps Fault? It appears that FoxConn had failed to life up to there end of the deal. Both Clinton, Obama, as well as Bush 41 had this happen during their time in Office. Clinton was sold the "Merger of equals" when Daimler merged with Chrysler, and two years later it cost 30,000 Americans their jobs. Why was that not proclaimed as Clinton's fault a the time. Foreign companies to this all the time to the U.S., and out media is good at trying to use it to further an agenda, rather then warn the American people to stop supporting foreign companies!

  12. I can't stand our president he's a fat piece of garbage hopefully he dies in office 😡😡 she would start the stand-your-ground and she was right about our president he's a piece of garbage

  13. Yet unemployment has never been lower un my lifetime…its almost like NBC is focusing on the negative to influence the election big surprise.

  14. Wake-up, ….NEVER trust the Chinese! You should have kown this. Where has this town been living, ….under a rock?

  15. I only feel bad for the people of the community if they voted against Trump. If not, you reap what you sow😘.

  16. Haven't got a clue..things don't just happen overnite..permits,draft planning…project managers and crews..2 yrs…had a new federal bldg done..it took 3 yrs to get started after the ok

  17. All I saw was one activist has concerns, one resident held off on a buyout, and the bond rating of a city was minimally downgraded. How'd this make national news? For that matter, where is the news?

  18. What part of the Trump persona did they not understand? Did they not know who Trump was? His incessant defaults, his lack of commitment? His wheeling and dealing narcissistic personality disorder? What didn't scream ALERT to these people and their town managers? And yet they're still falling for Foxxcon's B.S.

  19. Its funny. During Obama reign certain news channels went out of their way to produce pro-Obama propaganda, and now the same channels go out of their way to produce anti-Trump propaganda. Real news? Yeah, right.

  20. 😨 im sure they gonna come build lady calm down if not file suite with the city or congress or what were ever u need to..

  21. Wisconsin took some positive steps to not get taken to the cleaners by making sure that if Fox Con didn't come through they would not get the tax credits. That being said I'm very concerned about Trump being involved in the process. Every thing he touches ends up a failure. Ex Governor Walker was in on this too so hopefully it will be a win.

  22. Foxconn…just doing what trump been doing for decades….you voted for it you got it…all. the winning..MAGA….lmao

  23. Typical Trump scam, just like his other ventures & business deals, there is a long list of them, steaks, university, casinos, hotels, football league, are just a few. He leaves behind unpaid workers & investors, being president was another scam to protect him and it has.

  24. AMERICAN STORY
    The Story of White Americans
    WHITE PEOPLE WROTE THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE 🇺🇸
    White people wrote the Constitution and the Bill of Rights
    🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸❤👍👍
    I CAN BE PROUD THAT THE FOUNDING FATHERS WERE WHITE AND THEY DID SOMETHING GREAT!
    🤔❤🇺🇸
    You SHOULD give credit where credit is due.
    Q

  25. You are looking at the excess of the business class demanding huge tax breaks then failing to fulfill even the basic things the corporation promised. They could careless how much they put you in debt, they are there to extract, long time since the business class were builders of the future.

  26. When the 2020 presidential election is in full swing, Trump will stop in their town and once again claim he's bringing in jobs, it will be the biggest and the best ever and these people will vote for him again. If Trump wins these same folks will be back on the news crying and whining about how they were snookered…🤦‍♂️

  27. 2 people interviewed, yeah NBC covered the whole story.
    Bringing jobs back to the USA is a bad thing. Apparently the plant should have been built in a day and hiring should have started 8 years ago. Makes real sense dummies!!!

  28. LOL Foxconn is one of the major contributors to our good job growth in America once again a democratic lead news interview

  29. What's the town isn't telling you that as soon as they are done building the facility they will get 100% of the payment due for the purchase of the land on top of any other incentives that were added in on to the deal once again news misleading American people

  30. LOL why don't they indicate what a lowball offer is these people are making three times as much on their land and houses from Foxconn than what they paid for original purchase

  31. So the building isn't being built fast enough for them to appreciate them being overpaid for their land and houses for Foxconn to even build where they're at

  32. Foxconn isn't going fast enough for the homeowners and townspeople to appreciate the prophet that. Town will make and has made since foxconn's purchase

  33. Haha. It will never happen. No one would pay 10k for a tv. Theres a reason why they're made in the east. Cheap labor. Thay have a billion plus people there.

  34. FOXCONN has done this in many other countries. Go in and say they're going to do wonderful things, take the upfront money, and then bolt. Listen, Scott Walker is involved and he's a slightly stupider version of Trump. If Walker is involved then you can bet that he's getting his under the table money upfront. If Trump was brought in then you can bet that somebody bribed him to do so.

    Wisconsin has listened to the scammers and grifters of the GOP and this is what that nets you. I feel bad for the residents but they should have done a bit more research before they turned over the keys to the city and the cities budget.

  35. Why is trump helping a company who enslaves its workers abd has them jumping out if Windows ?
    Why cant trump help companies in the united states get these sweet subsidy deals..so that we can actually manufacture stuff here? Trump is a joke..an enemy.

  36. Why doesn't mainstream media ever REPORT THE REAL ECONOMIC & EMPLOYMENT NUMBERS AS THEY COME OUT & REPLACE THE PREVIOUSLY REPORTED ESTIMATED NUMBERS ? WOW HAVE THEY HUGE DIFFERENCES . ALSO WHY IS MAINSTREAM MEDIA REPORTING A GOOD ECONOMY ..? YOU KNOW THE REAL NUMBERS, ANYBODY THAT LOOKS CAN SEE, SO WHEN DOES THE NEWS COME OUT WITH THE TRUTH WITHOUT LOOKING LIKE IT HAS BEEN NOT UNTRUTHFUL ?
