President-Elect Donald J. Trump is keeping busy these days, almost as if he was already POTUS. From Trump Tower he seems to be accomplishing far more than Obama is doing in the White House.
He just made those wins look like nothing, though, with this latest announcement.
From Business Insider:
Masayoshi Son, the CEO of the Japanese telecom SoftBank, announced Tuesday that his company will invest $50 billion and bring 50,000 jobs to the US after he met with President-elect Donald Trump.
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.
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.”
Son and Trump came down from the president-elect’s office in Trump Tower to announce the move to reporters gathered in the lobby. Trump called Son “one of the great men of industry” before leaving the Softbank CEO to talk to reporters.
Masa said he would never do this had we (Trump) not won the election!

The massive scope of this investment in dollars and jobs is exactly what Americans want to see. This news should be plastered at the front of every major newspaper, but of course you won’t hear of it except in media that covers Trump fairly. If Trump manages to secure a few more deals like this, he will have eclipsed Obama’s entire job growth in 8 years!
Trump was underestimated for taking about how to make great deals for America. Now we get to see the shocking benefit of having a man in the White House who knows how to make deals.
