Trump seems to have jumped ahead of a decision from the Office of the US Trade Representative, writing in a tweet that Apple will not receive any exemptions.
“Apple will not be given Tariff wavers, or relief, for Mac Pro parts that are made in China,” Trump wrote. “Make them in the USA, no Tariffs!”
Earlier this month, Apple filed requests with the Office of the US Trade Representative, asking for some parts to be excluded from the planned tariffs.
Foreign policy via tweets. Hell of a way to run a country.
