US President Donald Trump has ruled out a tariff waiver for Apple products on Friday that is produced in China.
In his Oval Office at the White House, he stated the reports, “I want Apple to build their plants in the United States. I do not want them to build them in China.”
Trump further added, “When I heard they were going to build in China, I said no, it’s okay. You can build in China, but when you send your product into the United States, we are going to tariff you. But we will work it out.”
Asserting his conversation by saying that he had much respect for Apple chief Tim Cook, the president said, “We will work it out. I think they are going to announce that they are going to build a plant in Texas. And if they do that, I am starting to get very happy.”
A day before, Trump said Apple would not get any tariff waiver for its products manufactured in China.
“Apple will not be given Tariff waiver, or relief, for Mac Pro parts that are made in China,” he said in a tweet and asked the company to manufacture its products in the US.
