Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, April 13, 2019

Earlier this week, The Verge published a lengthy investigation into the many "innovation centers" Foxconn has announced in Wisconsin as part of its deal with President Trump to build a (status unknown) LCD manufacturing plant in the state. After spending 10 days on the ground, we simply reported the obvious: most of the "innovation centers" are empty, some of the buildings were never actually purchased, and no one in Wisconsin really seems to know what's going on.

WI brings some of dat Chinese democracy to America. Paid for, of course, by your average Wisconsin tax payer. Meanwhile, they cut the school budgets.

So this is how Foxconn is spending the taxpayer's money, eh? I wonder how many of these real estate deals are being handled by the Trump Organization?

Incredible that their advice is for reporters to stop checking to see if anyone is in the empty buildings. That stuff only works in China and Trump country.

Before some Trumper comes in and says the tax credits are tied to the number of jobs created and then tries to dismiss your whole argument, yes, that is true, BUT taxpayers have already spent $300 million on a massive interstate expansion, eminent domain, and other local costs related to the project.
