Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump promised he would “get” Apple to manufacture their products in America if he is elected president.
While speaking at Liberty University, Trump said:
And very simply, and I didn’t use to say this—two, three weeks ago I wouldn’t say it—but I think I can say it now because I’ve seen so many people. We have such amazing people in this country: smart, sharp, energetic. They’re amazing. I was saying, ‘Make America great again.’ I actually think we can say now—and I really believe this—we’re gonna get things coming. We’re gonna get Apple to start building their damn computers and things in this country instead of in other countries.
According to CNET, Apple only manufactures its Mac Pro in the United States.
Trump’s statement on making Apple manufacture their computers in America comes after Trump allegedly called for a 45 percent tariff on Chinese imports. Apple currently manufactures many of its products in China.
