Yesterday afternoon, Apple filed a report entitled "President Trump Denies a Customs Exemption for Apple Parts Made in China While Telling France That They Will Be Difficult for GAFA Tax." Our report was based on President Trump's tweets. Today we give you video clips of what the president said in full about both cases.
Yesterday, President Trump spoke with the press from the oval office on a number of issues, including a mutual tax US will impose French wines in the coming days or weeks for France's GAFA tax to come into force against Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon. He also talked about an Apple plant in Texas.
President Trump at Apple: "Well, I want Apple to build its facilities in the US. I don't want them to build them in China. So when I heard they were going to build in China I said it is okay that you can build in China, but when you send your product to the United States, we will charge you, but we will fix it. A man I really want and respect is Tim Cook and we will arrange it "I think they're going to announce that they're going to build a facility in Texas. And if they do, I'm starting to get very happy."
Apple had made the Mac Pro in Texas back in 201

Will the new US tariffs push Apple to return to Texas to produce its latest Mac Pro? Don't count it. The original plant in Texas was run by Flextronics. They will probably not support another crack at a facility that makes the Mac Pro back with the cost of the new Mac Pro being insanely higher.
While President Trump wants a US plant to create Mac Pro, there is not enough volume to ever justify a product for this product.
On taxation of French wine: US President Donald Trump said on Friday that the United States would strike France shortly thereafter with a & # 39; & # 39; reciprocal & # 39; & # 39; tax, probably on French wine, because the French Parliament adopted legislation on July 11 to tax US technology companies, primarily Google Apple, Facebook and Amazon (known as the GAFA tax).
