One of Trump's Biggest Scams, the Foxconn Deal, Falls Apart: A Closer Look - Late Night with Seth Meyers

  • Seth, your Trump impression is terrible... It's far too coherent!

  • Let's just tell the truth. The monsters Republicans created have turned on them and they're not happy. Well, these corporations are supposedly people thanks to Repukes, so they have the freedom to say what ever they want politically. Pathetic whiners.

Then they sell the real meds out the back door onto the street, and arrest anyone using them. THIS IS THE HELL WE LIVE IN.THERE ARE NO TRUSTABLE SOURCES - (except the Visitor).Experience and obvious logic is my main source. Their motive is malicious and they are not to be trusted; that can never change.

  • I live 5 minutes from the Foxconn location and it’s a crazy joke of a scam. It’s a massive complex that is essentially a brand new Ghost Town. Everyone here who wasn’t Team MAGA saw this coming from a mile away while it was vehemently defended by the MAGA drones. Hell, it even has “CON” right in the name and it still surprised people... What wasn’t mentioned is that they would quickly hire locals to meet hiring quota requirements set by the contract with the state, but after receiving the state’s money by meeting said quotas, they’d immediately lay all those people off. This happened multiple times. We are paying for this place out of our taxes and it was a massive scam meant to make Scott Walker look competent, which failed all of us, but succeeded in proving Walker’s competency to the world... and by that I mean, the lack of it.
