With the Time Shop, I Too Am the Greatest Conglomerate of All Time Chapter 125

Episode 125. Meet the President of the United States.

Brandon answered the New York City Police rookie question.

“That’s it. This is my job, so I’m here with no choice but to understand the feelings of those people. How frustrating would it be to be here on a wasted weekend? Politicians should see this and come to their senses.”

#The Oval Office of the President of the White House.

President Edward looked at his aide, Liam, with a troubled expression on his face.

“How many people are protesting now?”

“Nationwide, about 200,000 people are already on the streets.”

“200,000 people… that’s a lot.”

“yes. And if you consider the people at home, the number of people with the same dissatisfaction will be dozens of times that number.”

Edward rubbed the back of his nose with a tired face.

“Um… In the end, Liam’s concerns were right. Most of them are young people, so I thought it would cool down quickly, but it’s actually getting hotter…”

Liam opened his mouth cautiously.

“Mr. President, if this is what happened, please cancel the activation of Super Article 301. Then the problem will be solved.”

Edward shook his head at that.

“Have I not thought of that? But now the re-election day is just around the corner, isn’t it? First of all, a lot of people that Wontel employs are supporting the activation of this Super Article 301, and Wontel’s donations make up a large part of our election funds. Under these circumstances, it is practically difficult to withdraw Super 301.”

“I’m talking about that election. The people in the protests right now are going to have a very negative impact on the election. Giving up Wontel’s support even now may do less damage.”

While the president was making a very worried face, Liam opened his mouth.

“If it is difficult to make a decision, how about meeting with the representative of Korea’s Damoye?”

“The person named Mr. Kang?”

“yes. Still, I got a call from the other side saying that I would like to see the president.”

“me? why?”

“I have something to offer you. I didn’t hear the specifics of what the proposal was, but he’s the one who put us in such a corner, so I think it’s necessary to meet and hear what we have to say at least once.”

The president thought for a moment, then nodded.

“okay. Let’s hear what you have to say.”

“All right. Then we will make an appointment.”

#Everyone Center. my office.

English was playing on the phone.

“Mr. Kang. Liam Peake, aide to the President of the United States.”

“Ah, hello. Mr Peak.”

“yes. The message you left for me was well received. Do you have any suggestions for our President?”

“As you may know, the President is not someone you can meet with anyone. I hope it’s a worthwhile offer.”

“of course. At the very least, we have prepared a proposal that will not waste your time, so you will not regret it.”

“All right. Then we’ll see you at the White House at eight o’clock the next day.”

“thank you. Mr Peak.”

I hung up the phone and called Director Lee Guk-hyun.

“Chief. Finally got a call from the White House!”

“Wow! It’s not easy to meet a Korean president, but you’re making an appointment with the American president. Representative as well!”

“We have come close to our goal, but we are not yet completely relieved.”

“You’re saying you won’t be vigilant. Okay. Then I will arrange a flight and accommodation.”

US White House.

After rigorous screening and screening, my aide, Liam, led me to the front of the president’s office.

As I entered, I was greeted by President Edward of the United States, with all of his half-white hair pulled back.

“Nice to meet you. Mr President. My name is Jae-Woon Kang.”

“Come on. Mr Kang. It took a lot of hard work to come this far.”

Immediately after sitting on the sofa, Edward looked at me with a strange expression.

“To be honest, we didn’t meet face-to-face like this, but the young man is really amazing.”

“I will take it as a compliment. I am well aware that it wasn’t because the President had some kind of hate for me. He was just doing what he was supposed to do as President of the United States.”

“okay. It was Mr. Kang who properly interfered with what he was supposed to do.”

“haha. There is a famous quote from Yogi Berra, the great catcher of the New York Yankees of the American professional baseball team. It ain’t over ’til it’s over I want to say the same thing.”

Perhaps it was thanks to deliberately quoting the words of an American gunner, a favorable smile appeared on the president’s face.

“Fufu. It’s a saying. So what do you want to say?”

“It means that the relationship between me and Mr. President has not been completely decided yet. So far, we have been in a relationship that causes harm to each other, but there is no law that says that until the end.”

“Are you saying that you have come up with a way to avoid that?”

“you’re right. This is my suggestion.”

I handed the documents I brought to the President of the United States.

He took the glasses out of his shirt and started reading them.

And after a while, the president put on a surprised expression.


“yes. This is an investment proposal. It said that I would invest $10 billion in the United States over three years.”

“Ten billion dollars… that’s a lot of money.”

“yes. I plan to use that money to set up a foundry company in the United States.”

“Isn’t foundry ramen a system semiconductor company like Wontel?”

“That’s right. Also, I would like to inform you in advance that this foundry company will be built in the location that Mr. President wants.”

The president, who was thinking about the meaning of my words, exclaimed.

“ah! That means we will put them in the constituencies that need votes for re-election.”

“Whether you need a ticket or any other reason, we will put it where you want it. Once the line is built, $10 billion will be invested, and once the foundry is complete, it will employ many people and generate huge profits. Because I will allocate the amount of system semiconductors that I will produce first. It is said to revitalize the local economy and pay high taxes. I think a lot of people will like it.”

“It would be.”

“The company I will be setting up is an American corporation anyway. Even if Onetel collapses, the US will still be the world’s best system semiconductor company.”

Of course, the head office is located in Korea.

“It’s okay if Wontel collapses…”

He added a word to the thoughtful president, fiddling with his pen.

“And the first thing the foundry US corporation that I will set up will do is deliver campaign support to Mr. President’s re-election camp.”

In the United States, it was legal for corporations to fund elections.

From the president’s point of view, it was a harsh condition.

At those words, the eyes of the president did me.

He soon smiled.

“haha. As Mr. Kang assures, it is not a proposal that is not worth the time to listen at least. But all of that will happen only after the activation of Super Article 301 is withdrawn, right?”

“All right. First, let’s review Mr.’s lecture proposal a little more.”

After #Jaewoon left the office, President Edward called his aide, Liam.

She opened her mouth with a satisfied face.

“As Liam said, we needed to see each other.”

“You seem to have come up with a pretty good offer.”

“It’s not good enough. They came with a trick to solve many problems at once.”

“Is that what it was? What was your suggestion?”

As he delivered the explanation he had heard from Jae-woon, Liam was surprised and clenched his fists.

“Incredible! Not only will it help me a lot in this re-election, but I think it will have a huge ripple effect on the US economy as well.”

“Right. What I like the most is that I have insurance. Even if Wontel collapses, Mr. Kang’s foundry will still remain in the United States. Considering the genius of Mr. Kang, it might bring more profits to the United States than if Onetel was still in business. In addition, considering the mention of election donations, it seems that he has a good sense of politics as well. I don’t think he’s a bad friend to go with.”

“Then did you decide to withdraw Super 301?”

“My mind was leaning towards that. However, the final decision will be made by examining Mr. lecture materials a little more.”

#End of July, the White House.

US President Edward was speaking alone with USTR representative Henry Scott.

“Henry. You know there are protests all over the country to withdraw Article 301 of Super, which is being prepared to be invoked in Korea, right?”

“The perception that the government only covers large corporations is spreading, so my approval rating keeps dropping. Election is only a few months away. Is it necessary to activate the Super Article 301?”

“..Mr. President, as I said before, semiconductors are a key industry that supports our country and an important high-tech industry that is directly connected to national security. It is difficult to even dare to predict how far the impact will be if Wontel, which accounts for the largest portion of them, collapses.”

Edward asked, looking intently at Henry.

“Henry. Please answer honestly. If the drill CPU enters our market, is it true that Wontel will go bankrupt? I found out that it has been over a year since the Drill 1 CPU entered the US market, but the share of Wontel CPUs was still over 60%. Besides, Wontel does not only do business in Korea, but also exports a lot to overseas. If you take that into consideration, the Drill CPU will eat away Wontel’s share, but I don’t think it will ruin the business itself.”

When Henry, who was speechless at his question, couldn’t answer right away, Edward continued.

“Besides, the national security that Henry talked about earlier is also a problem. The time has come to change the supercomputers in the Pentagon now that they are old, and everyone in charge agrees that a supercomputer equipped with a 2 CPU is essential. But in reality, we are doing this right now to prevent that CPU import. Do you think this makes sense now?”

“..Mr. President, you have to look at it for a long time. If we use the drill CPU right now because we like it, it will be technically dependent on Korea later and that will be our weakness.”

Edward laughed bitterly.

“You have to look at it for a long time. good word. But Henry, do you know that?”

“If I had looked and acted as Henry said, I would never have been able to become president. Besides, re-election will be even more difficult. People want a leader who can deliver results that they can feel right away, not a leader who can only see the results a few decades later. And I have no intention of becoming such a leader. So, I am going to withdraw the activation of Super Article 301.”

Nolan Henry dissuaded President Edward.

“Mr. President! Don’t fall for it here. Even if it is difficult, you must persevere for a strong America.”

Edward shook his head.

“I also approved Henry’s proposal because I wanted Korea to maintain its status as the world’s greatest power forever. But looking back, I think it was the wrong choice. Many people are suffering because of the measures we have taken. I can’t stand watching this any longer.”

Edward looked intently into Henry’s eyes.

“Henry, let me be sure. There will be no Super 301 activation. So, please exclude Korea from the list of preferred bidder countries. And make it known through an official press conference.”
