Projects in Wisconsin that Trump touted as the "eighth wonder" are now vacant lots


The project by the Taiwanese company Foxconn in Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, has turned out to be far from the initial vision presented by former President Donald Trump as the "eighth wonder of the world."

Initially, in 2017, an agreement was approved between the Wisconsin government and Foxconn to build a state-of-the-art television screen plant, with the promise of creating jobs and significant investment.

However, after five years, the project has fallen far short of the initial expectations. Instead of the large plant and the creation of thousands of jobs, there are empty eight-lane highways, buildings without a clear purpose, and a series of constructions that appear to have limited utility.

Tax exemptions and subsidies provided to Foxconn were tied to job creation and a $10 billion investment in the complex. 

Despite this, only a fraction of that amount has been invested, and the employment generated has been much lower than promised.

The local community has also felt the impact of the project in the form of land expropriations and the destruction of homes to make way for roads and buildings that never materialized as expected.

The situation has led to criticism and skepticism among residents and project critics, who see how the initial promises of job creation and economic 

development have not been fulfilled, while significant resources have been invested in infrastructure related to the project.

In summary, the Foxconn project in Wisconsin has resulted in empty roads, underutilized buildings, and significantly less investment than promised, raising questions about the viability and real impact of such economic development agreements.
