Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says President Donald Trump plans to make a “major jobs announcement for Wisconsin” amid speculation that electronics giant Foxconn will build a plant in the state.

Walker tweeted the statement while referring to a Wednesday afternoon news conference at the White House.

A top Republican in the state, Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, says he’s in Washington for what he called an expected announcement from President Trump about Foxconn. Vos says he had no details about the possible Foxconn deal.
