U.S. President Donald Trump and Apple CEO Tim Cook are expected to tour facilities in Texas where Apple’s Mac Pro is assembled as early as next week to showcase companies that keep jobs in America, Reuters reports, citing two people familiar with the matter.

Alexandra Alper and David Shepardson report for Reuters:

The trip, which has not yet been announced, would highlight Cook’s strong relationship with Trump as he seeks further relief for Apple from U.S. tariffs on imports from China.

In September, Apple said it would make its new Mac Pro desktop computers in Austin, Texas, where it had made previous models at a contract manufacturing facility… Trump has made boosting the U.S. manufacturing sector one of the goals of his presidency…

MacDailyNews Take: Apple plans to release the all-new Mac Pro in December, Mark Gurman earlier reported for Bloomberg News.

    1. This is not about you. What, no snide thinly veiled put downs of President Trump today? I guess it is fair to assume we will add this progress to your long running list the president has done absolutely positive in your blind denial eyes…

  1. Cook has got to go. This distraction for trump’s benefit is too much.

    If Cook intro a MacBook anything this month but especially today it would be to aid that simple minded trump crook.

    This of course makes me want to look very closely at what Apple is doing in China.

  2. With its success from the iPhone, Apple is no longer a niche, boutique player. It’s mission now is to give value to the shareholders, and that requires selling off bits of soul.

    1. First time politician defeats 17 Professional Republicans in the primary and then defeats Wonder Woman with the largest war chest spent in presidential history defying pollsters and the media alike.

      Please tell us again what an “idiot” he is, hmmm?

      Look in the mirror Just the Facade…
