MADISON - Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker says President Donald Trump plans to make a "major jobs announcement for Wisconsin" amid speculation that electronics giant Foxconn will build a plant in the state.
Walker tweeted the statement while referring to a Wednesday afternoon news conference at the White House.

Taiwan-based Foxconn is best known as the assembler of the iPhone.
Wisconsin is among seven states, mostly in the Midwest, that the company has named as possible locations to build the its first liquid-crystal display factory that could mean tens of thousands of jobs.
