Two of Asia's biggest technology companies said they were looking to expand investment in the United States, as President-elect Donald Trump pushes to bring manufacturing and jobs back home.Billionaire businessman Masayoshi Son, head of Japan's Softbank Group Corp., pledged a $50 billion investment in the U.S., and Apple Inc. supplier Foxconn said it was in preliminary discussions to expand its U.S. operations. The investment pledge revived speculation that U.S. telecoms giant Sprint Corp., 82-percent owned by Softbank, might rekindle merger talks with T-Mobile US Inc. that died under pressure from U.S. regulators. The $50 billion investment, announced jointly by Trump and Son in the lobby of the Trump Tower in Manhattan, would come from the $100 billion tech investment fund the head of Softbank is setting up with Saudi Arabia's sovereign-wealth fund and other potential partners, according to the Wall Street Journal.
