Trump to Tim Cook: Make Apple products in the United States

“After a New York Times article described abject working conditions at China-based Foxconn, Apple has faced a growing firestorm of criticism,” Brooke Crothers reports for CNET. “Foxconn is Apple’s go-to contract manufacturer for iPads and iPhones.”
“Speaking on Fox News, Trump said Cook should decree that its stuff be made in the U.S.,” Crothers reports. “‘Wouldn’t it be a great thing if the new leader of Apple said we’re going to start building plants in the United States,’ he said.”

Crothers reports, “Trump continued. ‘Maybe the incentive’s not there…but when 100 percent of Apple’s products–or virtually 100 percent–are made outside of this country, it’s pretty sad,’ he said… Trump thinks Apple should try anyway. ‘We can do great things in this country…wouldn’t it be great if Apple actually made these products in the United States.’”
