Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, December 28th , Donald Trump said the following:
“I was just called by the head people at Sprint and they’re going to be bringing 5,000 jobs back to the United States…I just spoke with the head person “he said because of me they’re doing 5,000 jobs in this country.”

Although Trump claimed credit for SoftBank’s $50 billion investment in the United States, those plans predated the election,
