The Sniff Test: Foxconn’s history of broken promises casts a shadow on Wisconsin news

News that Foxconn is planning to build a plant in Wisconsin was announced to some fanfare late Wednesday by Gov. Scott Walker and President Donald Trump.

Not everyone is cheering.

The Taiwanese electronics manufacturer is best known for making Apple’s AAPL, -0.70% iPhone at factories in China, and Trump has been vocal about his desire to bring those jobs back to the U.S.

Foxconn’s chief executive, Terry Gou, joined Trump and Walker, along with Sen. Ron Johnson and House Speaker Paul Ryan, who represents the district in which the plant will be constructed, to unveil the news.

The plant will make liquid-crystal-display screens for TVs and other products, and will employ 3,000 workers initially, with the intent of growing that to 13,000 jobs over time, the officials said.
