After years that the USA had lost the manufacturing Apple for good, Steve Jobs was rumored to have said as much at a high-power Silicon Valley dinner in 2011, when he told President Barack Obama “those jobs aren’t coming back.” But eccentric billionaire Donald Trump thinks he’ll be the one to get them back.
Trump made the statement known at the Liberty University while he escalated his rhetorics on Apple’s overseas manufacturing as he claimed that the United States would reclaim those jibs in the future.
We have such amazing people in this country: smart, sharp, energetic, they’re amazing, I was saying make America great again, and I actually think we can say now, and I really believe this, we’re gonna get things coming… we’re gonna get Apple to start building their damn computers and things in this country, instead of in other countries.
– Trump said.
As Gizmodo points out, its a kind of silly fantasu . Donald Trump isn’t just going to rub his palms and “Boom!” that would happen. But as its being labelled a silly fantasy, Trump had being said to have been living in such a world where he’s being erected as King of America.
Calling powerful inventions “Damn” might not speak well of a man of his status. Though proudly called the damn to be brought back to America wouldn’t be an empty fantasy.
The same way his pretension that he can just call up world leaders like Frank Underwood and win huge concessions is ridiculous.
As apple ought to bring manufacturing back to America, the measured time for the realisation might be unknown. Despite Trump words being seen as some kind of powerful but empty emphasis, The process might mean that Apple abandoning its profit to succumb to a Presidential request.
Back in 2012 during the Presidential election, Trump narrated in a degree of manner to the Fix News that it would make sense if Apple could built plants in the US. “Maybe the incentive’s not there, but when 100-percent of Apple’s products, or virtually 100-percent, are made outside of this country, it’s pretty sad,” he said. “Wouldn’t it be great if Apple actually made these products in the United States?”
And as of December, it was still just a dream.
“We have to bring Apple, and other companies like Apple, back to the United States,” he said at a press conference promoting his book, Crippled America. “We have to do it. And that’s one of my real dreams for the country.”
Bringing Apple’s manufacturing jobs home isn’t totally out of the question, and Apple has shifted some jobs home, including when it brought some Mac production back to the US in 2013. But Apple’s deep reliance on international supply chains and manufacturers is well-established, and it will take a lot more than sharp words from Trump to convince Apple to abandon its profits. Not even one of the most successful presidents in history could get Steve Jobs to budge on that.
