    A Taiwanese electronics firm says it will build a factory in the US state of Wisconsin, following an invitation from US President Donald Trump.

    Foxconn is best known for making Apple's iPhones and iPads.

    Most of its factories are in China, where allegations of workplace abuse and a series of staff suicides have tainted its reputation.
