When it comes to news on the internet, they are often based on rumors, leaks and sometimes even pure speculation. According to such an unconfirmed report by Reuters, Samsung could be considering the idea of building a manufacturing unit in the United States. The plant would be used to manufacture home appliances for the local market. Experts have cited the idea as a result of the new US President's plans to impose heavy import taxes on all products manufactured outside the country. Although Samsung has not confirmed the news, the President has already thanked Samsung for their decision on Twitter!


The tweet read, "Thank you, @Samsung! We would love to have you!"



According to The Investor, an unnamed Samsung official has expressed that the tweet puts a lot of unwarranted pressure on the company. Firstly, it gives the public an impression that the decision has already been made by Samsung. Secondly, it could be viewed as an indirect way of forcing the Korean company into building a manufacturing plant over here in the US.


It remains to be seen if Samsung really does invest more into building manufacturing plants in the US, especially since its recent semiconductor business in Texas has just received a $17 billion investment.

Terry Halvorsen was the Chief Information Officer (CIO) at the US Department of Defence till February this year, but right now, he has been hired by Samsung Mobile as their executive vice president. The ex-deputy commander of the US Naval Network's Warfare division will be working directly under the CEO of Samsung Mobile, Shin Jong-Kyun as an advisor. His main job will apparently be to assist the South Korean company in expanding their network security business across both the US and Europe.


This move is part of the company's ongoing venture to work with the military in different countries. Not to say that Samsung is an amateur in this field though, since they have had a business relation with the US Department of Defence for more than three years now. However, after the recent revelations and allegations regarding Samsung's own Tizen OS having a whole bunch of security gaps in it, things may seem a bit dicey right now. On that note, one can speculate that maybe Samsung hired Terry Halvorsen in order to make sure that such mistakes do not happen in the future?
