“Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin tweeted a photo with Apple CEO Tim Cook on Friday, emphasizing Apple’s recent jobs announcement,” Chloe Aiello reports for CNBC.

“The photo depicts the two smiling at Apple’s new headquarters in Cupertino, California, and comes just days after Cook’s visit to Washington D.C.,” Aiello reports. “Apple in January made a series of pledges to invest in the U.S. economy, due in part to incentives reaped from the ‘Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.'”
