US President Donald Trump advised Apple to move production from China.
The president stressed that China has lost almost 2 million jobs in the last month alone because companies are moving to non-tariffed countries. The country suffers large production losses due to this outflow of production.
“They lost nearly 2 million jobs in a very short period. They’re going to lose a lot more jobs. And if I didn’t help certain companies — there are American companies like Apple — for a very short period of time, I may help them, only until they do what they have to do, which is probably move from China <…> If I didn’t help them, they would — I mean, they would be — they would have a big problem,” he said at a meeting with Romanian President Klaus Iohannis.
Earlier, Trump said that the trade war with china will be short and will not lead to a recession in the US economy.
