Taiwan Semiconductor to build $12 billion chip factory in Arizona

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., the world’s largest contract manufacturer of silicon chips, said Friday it would spend $12 billion to build a chip factory in Arizona. The plan, which will create over 1,600 jobs, comes as Trump steps up criticism of Chinese trade practices and its handling of the coronavirus ahead of the presidential election. Construction of the plant will begin next year.

Sounds like grounds for the official reopening of diplomatic relations between the US and Taiwanese government. Maybe open an embassy in Taipei and invite them to open one in DC.

That's what I like to see. Industry coming to the US. Sure, Taiwanese but it'll give jobs to Americans post-lockdown. I wonder if this will help develop our interest in protecting Taiwan. It's already looking like a new Cold War where China, Russia and the US will be picking countries to "protect" out of self-interest.
