Apple bet by the manufacturers of United States Apple

used an infinite number of inputs from various suppliers for its wide range of products.
Most of these providers is outside us, although according to the own Tim Cook lands, bet heavily on local production .

known was the crossing of words between the current President of the United States, Donald Trump and Tim Cook . Where Trump asked, somewhat violently, causing Apple your iPhone in United States:

are going to force Apple to build their damned computers in this country instead of in other countries.

Tim Cook ceased to pass up the opportunity to demonstrate in favor of the local workforce, declaring that Apple had to spend 50 billion dollars on the purchase of local supplies for your different products.
Although clearly it would be unfeasible to stop assembling much of their products (including the iPhone) out of the country, without that the cost increase is not reflected in the final price of the product.

for now Apple seems very focused on to foster American industry . And have to see that local company will be the next beneficiary of this “manufacturing Fund” .
