Apple to build three new 'big' plants in US

Apple CEO Tim Cook delivers brief remarks as U.S. President Donald Trump and White House Director of the Office of American Innovation and the president's son-in-law Jared Kushner listen during a meeting of the American Technology Council in the

The president in a Tuesday interview with The Wall Street Journalsaid the Cupertino tech giant is planning to build three "big", "beautiful" manufacturing plans in the US.

However, there are now no details available on the subject. Apple hasn't issued any statement in this regards. Apple also does contract some Mac Pro production in Texas to Flex.

For now, Trump seems to have kept to his pre-poll promises.

Apple now employs two million workers in the USA, including suppliers, app developers and other entrepreneurs.

What comes from the White House's STEM efforts remains to be seen, but we'll be sure to update as to how Cook's role transforms throughout the process. Right now, Apple only has Mac Pros manufactured in the United States, and it hasn't even committed to continuing that. Mr. Trump didn't elaborate on where those plants would be located or when they would be built.

Apple CEO Tim Cook called Trump to share that the iPhone-maker would do more manufacturing domestically, Trump told the Journal.

Or maybe when he said "three big plants", he meant lower-case "apple".

If Trump's claim does prove real, it would constitute a monumental investment on the company's side.

Many have come a long way in extending benefits to their LGBT employees in recent years, and recognise that to not defend political issues related to them could make their corporate policies appear less credible.

What's more, since the election, Trump has talked in progressively hopeful terms about the potential for Apple to work in the US. Because why would Cook care if Trump's administration is an economic success or not?

It appears that Cook once again feels responsible for using his voice, this time to elevate equality in the transgender military service debate.

Foxconn said last month it plans to invest more than $10 billion in a display-making factory in the United States. Besides that, Apple has to a great extent declined to remark on its assembling designs. Apple products might be produced in this factory despite the fact that Apple won't own it. Apple emphatically needs to see changes to how overseas benefits are exhausted, with the goal that it can get a tremendous heap of cash - over $230 billion - that has been sitting overseas.
