President Donald Trump Tweeted to Apple to start building plants to create their products in the United States and not China just days before the company is set to announce the new iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max.
Trump says Tariffs on China may increase Apple product prices because they are created in China.
Apple prices may increase because of the massive Tariffs we may be imposing on China – but there is an easy solution where there would be ZERO tax, and indeed a tax incentive. Make your products in the United States instead of China. Start building new plants now. Exciting! #MAGA

Apple employs thousands of people and they say their products are designed by Apple in California, but the products are made in countries like Mongolia, China, Korea and Taiwan.
Trump is looking to impose a total of $467 billion worth of tariffs on China, everything from small wallets to iPhones.
China on the other hand responded by saying they would impose tariff on $60 billion worth of goods imported from the United States.
