Trump Says Apple CEO Promises To Build Three Manufacturing Plants In US

Trump Says Apple CEO Promises To Build Three Manufacturing Plants In US

"He's promised me three big plants - big, big, big", Mr. Trump said, referring to Mr. Cook.

Foxconn, the Taiwan-based electronics giant that oversees most of Apple's massive factory network in China, is considering opening a plant in Wisconsin. Trump tweeted that "After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military". While responses have been mixed among Apple's various Chinese contractors, who help produce components like screens and chips within Apple devices, Foxconn has been a high-profile supporter for the move. Apple claims its responsible for creating 2 million U.S. jobs.

A more likely scenario, Snell added is that Apple would open "more data centers and expand other aspects of its research and development efforts in other places, rather than the mechanics of building hardware from scratch".

Apple has already said that it would start a $1 billion fund to promote advanced manufacturing jobs in the United States. Trump apparently told Cook that he wouldn't consider his administration an economic success until Apple began building its plants in the nation.

In the event that Trump's announcement is right, that'd be a major speculation for Apple's sake and a huge change of pace. For one thing, with the increased popularity of buying American-made products, the company would gain a competitive advantage over some of its rivals.

Apple has long had to contend with criticisms about its manufacturing practices by having their products made in China and selling them by the billions in the US. Especially with topics like outsourcing, companies like Apple were occasional targets for Trump.

Apple, on its part, had been making disclosures to highlight how it had been contributing to job creation in the US. But for a company that has begun to earn a reputation for social responsibility and courage under CEO Tim Cook, its silence on Trump's claim is an ugly look.
