President Trump is again pressuring companies including Apple to move all of their manufacturing into the United States. The comments were made in an interview with Fox Business, during which Trump floated the idea of charging a “tax” to companies when “they make product outside.”
During the interview, Trump suggested that the United States “put up our own border,” a move that would apparently force Apple to build “100 percent of their products” domestically.
“You know, if we wanted to put up our own border, like other countries do to us, Apple would build 100 percent of their product in the United States. That’s the way it would work,” Trump said. “One incentive, frankly, is to charge tax for them when they make product outside. We don’t have to do much for them. They have to do for us,” Trump said.
