Trump Tweets Japan's SoftBank Will Invest $50 Billion In The US, Create 50,000 New Jobs
At Zero Hedge by Tyler Durden --
On Tuesday afternoon, the billionaire founder and CEO of Japan's Softbank and was seen entering the Trump Tower, to meet with the President-elect. It appears that they had fruitful conversations, because just a few minutes later, Trump - who earlier in the day lambasted Boeing over charging too much for Air Force 1 sending its stock lower - tweeted some words of praise for the Japanese businessman.
At 2:10pm eastern, Trump tweeted "Masa (SoftBank) of Japan has agreed to invest $50 billion in the U.S. toward businesses and 50,000 new jobs..." and in a follow up Tweet added "Masa said he would never do this had we (Trump) not won the election!"
