Last week, there were media reports that a letter from Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers wrote to Assistant Director Guo Taiming (Louis Woo) that Foxconn had invested $10 billion in a factory in Wisconsin. Wisconsin is renegotiating the terms of the agreement. According to CNBC, the content of the letter stated that Foxconn proposed a proposal to amend the agreement at a meeting in March.

Regarding the search for changes to the agreement, Foxconn’s statement issued last week did not deny it. But the company said, "We have never wavered in our commitment to the Wisconsin contract and the creation of 13,000 jobs, which is part of our broader effort to promote Wisconsin as a global technology center."

For the White House statement on the meeting between Guo Taiming and Trump, Foxconn did not immediately respond to the media's request for comment.
