Trump-China trade war latest: Brave patriot Apple decides to do exact same thing, will still make Mac Pro in US

Chet Mannly

“The value of American-made components in the new Mac Pro is 2.5 times greater than in Apple’s previous generation Mac Pro.” Note the word “value” in there – not number."

From the US perspective value is all that matters - it means 2.5x the $$$ going into the US economy instead of the Chinese one - which is the whole point.

Reality is Apple did a deal with Trump - Apple significantly increased the amount of money they put into the US economy, Trump dropped tariffs. Everything is a negotiation with him.
