By Boosting the U.S. Economy
Apple has famously clashed with President Donald Trump over the U.S. economy. Trump has repeatedly called for Apple to manufacture its devices in the U.S. — a task that’s not nearly as realistic as it seems. But Apple has made massive contributions to the U.S. economy despite making its products in China.
Just as an example, there’s the App Store. That’s a whole new economic sector that didn’t exist before Apple kickstarted it. But Apple has also pledged $1 billion to boost U.S. manufacturing and plans on investing more than $350 billion in the U.S. economy as a whole over the next five years.
