The "campus will serve both as an advanced manufacturing facility as well as a hub of high technology innovation for the region", it stated.

Rupar tweeted, "The headline of the story Trump describes as "great news" is, 'Foxconn does damage control over Wisconsin factory, ' and the article makes clear the company hasn't committed to creating a single manufacturing job in Wisconsin".

As part of the Foxconn legislation passed in 2017, the state agreed to give a $15 million grant to the village of Mount Pleasant, where Foxconn is slated to open its three-phase project.

The company said it was looking forward to continuing its expansion of investment in American talent in Wisconsin and the U.S.

State and local leaders have promised Foxconn an unprecedented $4 billion in incentives.

According to Gou, Trump said in the phone conversation Friday that he hoped Foxconn would continue with the innovation-centered project in Wisconsin so as to cultivate high-tech talent and to reverse the outflow of such workers to the USA east and west coasts.

Wisconsin's then-governor, Scott Walker, offered Foxconn $3 billion in state subsidies for the project, a move that proved to be controversial enough it that may have cost Walker his re-election a year ago.

The latest Foxconn statement did not say whether the commitment to this size factory would affect the type of workers who would be employed in Wisconsin.
