JUST-IN: Explosion reported at Biden's celebrated TSMC microchip factory in Phoenix, Arizona – Fire units respond to hazardous materials call | The Gateway expert

Joe Biden speaks at a TSMC semiconductor chip factory in Arizona.

An explosion was reported Wednesday afternoon at the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company plant in north Phoenix, Arizona, seriously injuring one.

As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, Biden appeared in Arizona in late 2022 before the plant opened to announce a $40 billion investment while visiting the computer chip factory, struggling to read the teleprompter.

Earlier this year, Biden announced another $8.5 billion in investments at Intel for a major CHIPS and Science Act award and gave a rambling speech to a few rows of people at the Intel Ocotillo Campus in Chandler, Arizona.

This came after DEI – Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion – repealed the CHIPS Act.

“The Biden administration recently pledged to finally take the reins on $39 billion in CHIPS Act subsidies to encourage semiconductor manufacturing in the US. But less than a week later, Intel announced it was putting the brakes on its Columbus factory. Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) has cut production at its second foundry in Arizona. The remaining major chipmaker, Samsung, just postponed its first factory in Texas. The hill reported.

“This is not the way companies typically respond to multi-billion dollar subsidies. What explains the apparent ingratitude of chipmakers? In large part, this stems from frustration with the DEI requirements set forth in the CHIPS Act.” De Heuvel reported.

The far-left Guardian reported last August,

Posed in front of an American flag and a large banner that reads 'A Future Made in America Phoenix, AZ' Joe Biden told a crowd of gathered workers, supporters and media last December: “American manufacturing is back, folks.”

Eight months later, the Phoenix microchip factory – the centerpiece of Biden's $52.7 billion US hi-tech manufacturing agenda – is struggling to come online.

The factory's owner, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), the world's largest chip manufacturer, did just that pushed back plans to begin production until 2025, blaming a lack of skilled workers. It is trying to speed up visas for 500 Taiwanese workers. Unions accuse TSMC of using the skills shortage as an excuse to hire cheaper foreign workers. Others point to safety problems at the factory.

The Arizona project is the flagship of the president's efforts to raise awareness of the law's impact, and TSMC's promised $40 billion investment in the U.S. chip manufacturing plant is one of the biggest foreign investment in American history and the largest ever in Arizona.

Despite the launch failure, the Biden administration celebrated increased funding under the CHIPS Act for the TSMC plant in Arizona at a press release from last month.

Now the factory has exploded.

As The Gateway Pundit reported, a ship also collided with the Pelican Island Bridge in Galveston, Texas, on Wednesday morning.

Disasters in Biden's America are common.

AZ Central reports,

Firefighters from multiple departments responded to a report of hazardous materials at the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company plant in north Phoenix on Wednesday afternoon, the Phoenix Fire Department said.

According to the Phoenix Fire Department, firefighters from the Phoenix, Glendale and Daisy Mountain fire departments were dispatched to TSMC, near Dove Valley and 43rd Avenue, around 2:30 p.m.

According to the Phoenix Fire Department, the call came in response to an explosion at the plant.

One adult male, believed to be an employee at the site, was taken to a hospital with serious injuries, authorities said.
