There seems to be some confusion at the local dailies about what exactly transpired between White House squatter Donald Trump (R-Donald Trump) and New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft (R-NFL) over the GOP tax bill passed the other day.
According to yesterday’s Boston Herald Billionaire Bromance piece, Trump claimed that Kraft “based on this tax bill he just wanted to let me know that he’s going to buy a big plant in the great state of North Carolina and he’s going to build a tremendous paper mill there or paper products plant.”
But the Boston Globe’s Jon Chesto had a different take.
Unfortunately, the Kraft Group offered little clarity on the matter. A spokesman confirmed that Kraft and Trump spoke, and that Kraft believes the bill will spur corporate America to make significant capital investments.
But is a Kraft affiliate building another one in the Tar Heel State? The Kraft spokesman wouldn’t say. A spokesman for that state’s economic development office was similarly elusive.
As is just about everything Donald Trump has ever said.
