Trump urges Apple to produce in us and leave China. Trump threatened Friday to impose another 267,000 million dollars in tariffs to China, which would be added to the 200,000 million that his Government is preparing to start soon
President Donald Trump urged today the technological giant Apple to produce all its components in the country to avoid being affected by the tariffs that his Administration could impose on China in the coming months.
“Apple’s prices may increase due to the massive tariffs that we could impose on China, but there is a solution with which there would be ZERO taxes and, in fact, a tax incentive .” They make their products in the United States, instead of in China. , wrote Trump on his personal Twitter account.
The president closed his message with a blunt: “Start building new plants (production) now. Exciting!”.
This Friday, Trump threatened to impose another 267,000 million dollars in tariffs on China, which would be added to the 200,000 million that his Government is preparing to launch soon.
In 2017, the United States imported 505,000 million dollars in products from China, a sum that would be covered by the impending tariffs of 200,000 million, the 50,000 million that Washington has already imposed since July and the 267,000 with which the tenant threatened of the White House.
This possibility directly affected Apple’s actions, which were hurt by a series of reports that indicated that the products of the technology giant could be impacted by tariffs on goods imported from China.
The company ended the day with a decline of 0.81 percent after its shares plummeted half an hour before closing, and after having quoted in green practically all day.
Last April, Apple applauded the tax reform promoted by Trump, which includes a significant tax reduction for companies, and announced that it will invest close to 350,000 million dollars in the US in the coming years.
