Donald Trump said today that U.S. telecommunications company Sprint will bring 5,000 jobs back to the United States from overseas, while he said another company OneWeb will add 3,000 jobs in the United States.
The Predator-elect said the deal "was done through" Japanese billionaire and technology investor Masayoshi Son, who is the CEO of Softbank–which has a controlling stake in Sprint Corp.
"I was just called by the head people at Sprint and they are going to be bringing 5,000 jobs back to the United States, they are taking them from other countries," Trump told reporters outside his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.
"And also OneWeb, a new company, is going to be hiring 3,000 people. So that's very exciting," he added.
Never heard of "OneWeb" before, but okay.
Son and Trump have been at this for a while. Not sure how this benefits Trump Org, but we can rest assured that it does somehow.
