President Trump praised the announcements of new investments and new jobs in the auto and tech industries in the country.

One of the investments is a $4 billion joint venture of auto giants Hyundai, Kia and Aptiv to develop driverless car technologies in the United States, bringing “great jobs” to Americans.

“BIG NEWS by @Hyndai, @Kia, and @Aptiv on a 4 BILLION DOLLAR joint venture to develop autonomous driving technologies in the USA. That’s a lot of $$ and JOBS! Great jobs coming back to America!!” the president wrote in a tweet.

The companies said the agreement will make mobility safer, green, connected, and accessible. The autonomous driving platform will be available for robotaxi providers and automotive manufactures in 2022.

Additionally, President Trump said Navistar, a leading manufacturer of trucks and buses, announced its plans to construct a $250 million truck factory expected to bring 600 jobs to the San Antonio area.

Navista recently announced plans to invest $125 million in the Huntsville, Ala., engine plant to produce next-generation powertrains.

The president also praised tech giant Apple for announcing it will build its new Mac Pro in Austin, Texas, after it was approved exemptions from tariffs to import parts from China.

“This means hundreds of American jobs in Austin and for suppliers across the Country. Congratulations to the Apple team and their workers!” he tweeted.

“The Mac Pro is Apple’s most powerful computer ever and we’re proud to be building it in Austin,” Apple CEO Tim Cook said in a statement. “We thank the administration for their support enabling this opportunity.”
