Hmmmm.... so in 2028 Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing, the world's biggest computing chip manufacturer will start producing it next generation chips in Arizona....

This is being presented as a triumph of Biden's economic policies (a pull factor), but one cannot help but wonder whether there is also a significant issue of China's increasing belligerence towards Taiwan (a push factor) in the relocation?

"The #US on Monday urged restraint and no unilateral change to the 'status quo' across the #Taiwan Strait amid China’s 'gray zone' harassment of Taiwan, including the use of drones near #Kinmen County... Kinmen Defense Command said that [it] detected a civilian drone approaching the islands of Erdan and then Menghu... The movements came after a Chinese YouTube channel posted drone videos of Taiwan’s military supplies and transportation on Erdan"
