President Trump is in Wisconsin to take part in Thursday’s FoxConn groundbreaking in Mount Pleasant.

Trump arrived in Milwaukee Wednesday night.  Thursday, he’s first taking part in a fundraising event at the Pfister Hotel in downtown Milwaukee, before overseeing the groundbreaking for the upcoming FoxConn plant at around 12:30 p.m.  He’ll be joined by Governor Scott Walker, Wisconsin congressmen, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, and FoxConn CEO and Chariman Terry Gou.  He is then expected to give remarks at the FoxConn Opus Building.

FoxConn is building its first Wisconsin plant in Racine County, promising a $10 billion investment in the state that will create 13,000 jobs.  However, not everyone is happy with the deal, as several protests are planned throughout the state Thursday.
