President-elect Donald Trump announced Wednesday Sprint and a new company, One Web, will add 8,000 jobs in the United States.
During brief remarks from his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Fla., Trump spoke about the news to assembled reporters.
"I was just called by the head people at Sprint. They are going to be bringing 5,000 jobs back to the United States," Trump said. "They are taking them from other countries. They are bringing them back to the United States.
"Also, One Web, a new company, is going to be hiring 3,000 people. That's very exciting."
Trump also recently announced an American job-creating deal with SoftBank Corp., which owns Sprint.
Trump said Wednesday that SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son helped broker the deal regarding Sprint.
"A terrific guy. We appreciate it," Trump said of him.
