US President Donald Trump, on Saturday, told Apple to make their product in The US instead of China to avoid tariff.
In a letter to the trade officials, the company said that a proposed new round of $200 billion in additional tariffs on Chinese imports would raise the price of ‘wide range’ of its products including Apple Watch and the Mac mini.
Trump gave an ‘easy solution’ where there would be ZERO tax.
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

There has been no response from Apple yet.
This new proposed tariff has left the entire technology sector highly exposed as tariffs would make imported computer parts more expensive.
