Pres. Trump is applauding Stamford, CT-based Charter Communications for its commitment to U.S. jobs, including “completely ending” its offshore call centers.
At the start of his daily briefing Friday press secretary Sean Spicer said Charter “has committed to investing $25 billion and hiring 20,000 American workers over the next four years.”
“Five years ago Charter Communications was a struggling company that slowly emerged from bankruptcy,” Spicer said. Charter, which operates the Spectrum broadband, cable, and phone systems, acquired Time Warner Cable as well as Bright House cable for $55 billion in 2016. Charter shares are up +24 percent since the election.
