Masayoshi Son met with Donald Trump in New York on Tuesday, after which the president-elect tweeted that “Masa” had consented to put $50 billion in the U.S. Child said he would pump the cash into new businesses. Child is fixated on what’s to come. Amid a profit call a month ago, he said he needed to be tech’s Warren Buffett, and he has a 300-year get ready for SoftBank (SFTBF). Yes, 300 years.
He needs his organization to separate dialect boundaries and permit individuals to impart clairvoyantly. It might appear to be odd that a very rich person who needs to make quiet correspondence a reality, just met with a tycoon known for boisterously communicating his perspectives at huge arouses.
