Trump Wants Apple to Move Production to US

Silicon Valley has enjoyed its relationship with Obama, but it is unclear how the world’s largest tech giants will fare under a Trump administration. For example, Donald Trump told Apple CEO that he was going to “get” the tech giant to start manufacturing its products in the United States. This happened when Trump received a post-election phone call from Tim Cook during which he said that if Apple built a big plant (or many) in the United States, it would be a real achievement. Cook said he understood that, and Trump went on to promise multiple incentives through tax breaks and reduced regulations.

101b0c1c6da5aaf415a73cb8664b1bcb.th.gif

Although these were not official negotiations, the direction is quite clear. Apple markets its high-end products as being “designed by Apple in California”, but everyone knows that the electronics are assembled at factories in China from components produced in China, Japan and Taiwan. Overall, Apple suppliers employ over 1.6 million people.

One of the key themes of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign was to force US companies to bring jobs back to the country – which went against his own business’s decision to manufacture apparel in China or Bangladesh. Aside from the promise to get Apple to move its production to the US, Trump also called for a boycott of Apple products unless it acceded to the FBI’s demand to unlock one of the terrorists’ iPhones.

At the same time, industry experts agree that assembling iPhones in the US is impractical and economically unfeasible, since Apple relies on a complex and very large supply chain and manufacturing infrastructure already established in other countries. As for the US, the supply chain to make consumer electronics in volume does not exist there, so moving production to the US is an unrealistic goal before the creation of such a chain. This could take many years. On the other hand, if Apple has to invest in establishing a new supply base in the country, its competitors will take an advantage to catch up with it.

According to tech experts, assembling iPhones in the United States would make them $30-$40 more expensive, primarily due to labor costs and the additional cost of shipping components. This doesn’t take into account the capital cost outlay of building factories.

chdr1 avatarwell when you can pay over $1000 for a phone another $30 -$40 is no big deal but you gotta keep that $500 to $600 profit margin per unit coming in i guess .. you just gotta keep that gulf between rich and poor widening in the western world... blue collar worker = below poverty line living in aust usa and uk

suedwestgabber avatarJust read this article and once again we are confronted with the orange buffoons narcissism and complete lack of competence.
This mentally immature orange moron will impact all of our lives in a negative manner.
I sincerely hope that there's a recount of votes.
Trump's a con man and cheated his way into presidency.

luckybuddha avatarTrump doesn't seem to have a grasp on reality . He tries to simplify everything pertaining to the US and foreign relations but doesn't understand that things and situations are complex because after all its not all black and white.He's very simple minded and closed minded.

No avatareyemanozzy, we did vote. He lost by over 2 million votes, but won the presidency anyway. The only thing he knows well is how to manipulate the less-intelligent masses, how to borrow money to start a business, and how to declare bankruptcy so you don't have to pay the money back. Just hope wherever YOU live doesn't get nuked by this moron.

eyemanozzy avatar@ #9 Flyinby
i understand that california had enough votes against trump to fill three states but, the fact of the matter is election wins in usa are counted by state , not votes past the post . popularity wise , hillary the murdering, lying, back stabbing candidate won on the votes in california alone.
as an outsider , i can see the fear campaign runs strong in the states, always someone to fear ! communists , terrorists , muslims , trump....the list goes on ! usa would have less to fear if they stuck to looking after themselves first before medling in other countries affairs then having reprisals that hurt . eg: 911 , do you think that would've happened if the states didn't didn't ruin iran with dirty weapons , not clean up , not help the civilians lives destroyed so the states could have oil ? naive my friend , go on believing you were hard done by , while the rest of the world looks at you differently than you think ..........

fusseltier avatarmost people don't know or didn't see the article years ago when steve jobs, the patriot he was, said he would never move production back to the Us because he can't wake up a dormitory full of workers at midnight, give them a cup of tea and a biscuit, and have them pull a 24 hour shift.
all in the name of making $100.00 more per unit than he could if they were made in the states.
apple, the most unamerican american company.

BigJ0554 avatarI've never bought anything from apple because it's made a few miles from me and those poor kids work so hard for those over priced gadgets, but if manufacturing moves back to America then i would get one, because it will be better quality than what the exhausted workers produce here

No avatarThe one thing I don't like about Trump the most is his lack of understanding that the internet/freedom is under attack. The FBI doesn't need Apple to get into an iphone. The demand to Apple is just a scam to try to get their illegal collection of data admissible in court cases.

(Ivanka moves Chinese factory to Africa)
Trump: Of course, I meant Apple. I didn't mean my own companies.

No avatarAt first Apple is paying little or no US taxes at all, the for instance IPhone production only costs between 10-30 US $, Apple sells these for about US $700, even if the US production costs US $200 there is enough profit left even after taxes.
Remind one thing all who went abroad with production did this for own profit, cheap labor and low or no taxes.
This and the endless spending money on loans by bank's is and has destroying western society! Together with cheap labor import + refugees ,bring one in and 15 to 20 more after 5 years, family reunification. You don't have to be a economic to see the problem and the right from Donald Trump!

RaderCad avatarThere is no benefit for any corporation to move to the USA. It's corporate taxes are the third highest in the world. The USA is only behind those 'industrialized giants' Puerto Rico and Saudi Arabia. (that last bit was sarcasm.)

fusseltier avatarcountries should manufacture etc for their own economies, not keep going to the next cheapest labor source just for profits.
swiss companies make profits using swiss labor plus give great benefits.
there is no reason a company that is run correctly can't offer good pay and benefits and still be in their own country, unless its just the profit that matters, and that is always the case with american companies.
soon the only place left for cheap labor will be africa, and how can they teach people how to assemble or do anything at all if they can't learn to feed or provide for themselves without stealing or killing?
you think chinese make poor quality, wait until its made in aftica.

No avatarThis from a man who doesn't attend intelligence briefings on how the world really is. I voted, yet how can this fool even expect to arm twist every company in America to do his bidding. Progress breeds results. Even with the degenerate handling of Chinese workers, can we as American workers keep up with the likes of Mexico with work results and use of high end manufacturing. Doubtful!

No avatar@JeFRO72, Your right, he's in shell shock right now with the power he's about to gain. Lucky for us today that presidents are mostly speakers, not the lone gun that makes all the decisions. You can tell by the change of demeanor now. But will he be like every other recent president that lies, lies ,lies to be elected, etc. That's how all this came about.. Social media exposes lies more easily, etc. That on top of getting elected.

windwalker007 avatarI never comment but can just not resist. The popular vote in America was won by Trump. The 3 million dead people that voted for Killary was a joke along with the 5 million illegal alien voters. But even leaving those votes alone Trump still won popular vote by 1,500,000 votes. The media puts out false news about vote just like they did with the polls. 25-33 year olds still listen to the lies. And I owed the first 3 versions of iPhone and will stay with Android....thank you very much...
