Donald J. Trump promised the American people that he was going to bring organizations back from overseas and increase the number of jobs in the USA. This past Wednesday (2-8-17) he made a dent on that promise.
Intel, the largest computer chip manufacturer in the world, is about to invest 7 billion dollars in completing a factory in Chandler Arizona. The building of the plant will create 3,000 jobs. It will be one of three additional Intel facilities in the state.

Furthermore, the White House was happy to have Intel make their announcement in the Oval Office. Trump responded with “The people of Arizona will be very happy. It’s a lot of jobs.”
