Public to weigh in on pair of Walker priorities

Public to weigh in on pair of Walker priorities

President Trump took credit for Wisconsin landing the new Foxconn plant during a White House meeting with Governor Scott Walker and other officials Monday.

Speaking at a White House meeting yesterday, Trump said the Taiwan based company wouldn't be building a factory in this country if he wasn't elected. "Frankly, they weren't coming to this country". They would not have done this in this country. "I think you (Walker) know that very well".

While discussing his plan to improve America's infrastructure, the president said the Foxconn deal probably would not have happened without him.

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. Walker argues his proposals, including a state protection for people with pre-existing conditions, are needed because Washington has failed to act on passing a replacement for the Affordable Care Act, also known as "Obamacare". "We made a major investment".

Walker mentioned the state's quarter-billion-dollar investment in the $1.6 billion Interstate 94 reconstruction project between IL and Milwaukee and said with additional federal funding the project could be completed by fall of 2020 - "a date I'm sure you're interested in". Trump is up for re-election then. The project is expected to create up 13,000 jobs.
