Biden touts Microsoft AI center on site of Trump’s failed Foxconn deal

President Biden on Wednesday hailed a new Microsoft artificial intelligence center in Wisconsin as evidence of a “historic boom” in U.S. manufacturing that highlighted former president Donald Trump’s failure to deliver on his promise of a job-rich Foxconn plant in the same spot.

Biden appeared in Racine County, Wis., near the site of the ill-fated Foxconn manufacturing campus, to announce Microsoft’s $3.3 billion investment in an AI data center. The investment is expected to create 2,000 permanent jobs and 2,300 temporary union construction jobs, and Microsoft will also invest in workforce training programs in the state.
