Six years later, Brazil is still waiting for most of those jobs to materialize. “The area where Foxconn said it would build a plant is totally abandoned,” said Guilherme Gazzola, the mayor of Itu, one of the cities that hoped to benefit from the project. “They haven’t even expressed an interest in meeting us.”

RTs = endorsements? Trump’s retweets of outlandish memes a signal to his base : Over the past 2½ months, President Trump has retweeted to the more than 30 million followers of his personal Twitter account these pieces of highbrow social media content:
●An animated GIF of him executing some WWE-style ground-and-pound on a CNN avatar.

●A cartoon meme of a “Trump train” running over a hapless CNN reporter.

●On Sunday, another doctored GIF of him hitting a golf ball into Hillary Clinton so hard she falls over.
