President Trump Gives Apple Some Business Advice

President Trump tells Apple to make their products in the U.S. to avoid China’s tariffs.

Trump tweeted: Apple prices may increase because of the massive Tariffs we may be imposing on China – but there is an easy solution where there would be ZERO tax, and indeed a tax incentive. Make your products in the United States instead of China. Start building new plants now. Exciting! #MAGA

But, but, but… Apple needs China’s cheap labor force to keep their cost of production low.

Reuters:

U.S. President Trump tweeted on Saturday that Apple Inc (AAPL.O) should make products inside the United States if it wants to avoid tariffs on Chinese imports.

The company told trade officials in a letter on Friday that the proposed tariffs would affect prices for a “wide range” of Apple products, including its Watch, but it did not mention the iPhone.
