    The US President Donald Trump has visited Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to tour a new electronics factory for the Taiwanese technology company, Foxconn.

    The company makes LCD (liquid crystal display) screens and assembles iPhones in China.

    His visit comes just days after the state's famous motorcycle manufacturer, Harley Davidson warned it was moving some production overseas to avoid new tariffs.
