Japanese Firm SoftBank Promises $50 Billion in Investment in America, Likely Generating 50,000 Jobs, After Meeting with Trump

Tired of all this #Winning.

According to The Wall Street Journal, Son told reporters at Trump Tower that the investment would come from a $100 billion fund created in partnership with the Saudi Arabia sovereign-wealth fund and other investors.

SoftBank in October announced a $100 billion tech fund with the Saudis called the SoftBank Vision Fund. The fund had not detailed where it would invest.

Details about the jobs or what sort of businesses the fund would invest in were not announced. But Son showed reporters a PowerPoint slide signed by Son and Trump with the vague numbers.

Shortly after the meeting, Trump tweeted the details of the agreement and said the deal never would have been done "had we (Trump) not won the election."

Allahpundit writes that this is probably to buy goodwill for a purchase of T-Mobile they're eyeing but may be blocked by the government on anti-trust grounds.

Well, you can't spell "propaganda victory" without "victory."
