Along with the multi-billion dollar investment, Trump declared the company is also planning an extensive hiring push in the U.S.

“And has committed further to hiring 20,000 American workers over the next four years,” said Trump.

According to Trump, Charter would completely end its offshore call centers, choosing to base 100% of its call centers here in the U.S.  This will include a new call center in McAllen, Texas, “Where they will create 600 new American jobs.”

Trump applauded Charter for following in the footsteps of other companies who have recently announced plans to invest and create jobs in the U.S.

“Charter’s announcement follows a number of American Businesses from Exxon (NYSE:XOM) to Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) to Lockheed (NYSE:LMT) to Boeing (NYSE:BA) to many others that have recently announced billions of dollars in investment and thousands of jobs coming into the United States following my election victory.”
