US to deny tariff relief for Apple Mac Pro parts from China

Trump Targets Apple, Google as DOJ Probes Silicon ValleyApple stock dipped slightly immediately following Trump's warning.

Twitter users also ridiculed Trump for misspelling "waivers" as "wavers".

The Wall Street Journal reported in June Apple had chose to move production of the Mac Pro to China, despite threats of economic tariffs in the ongoing trade battle with the United States.

Apple has long come under scrutiny from the president, who has pushed for products to be manufactured in the USA and continues to pursue his trade war with China. And that's bad news for all of us as Apple customers.

"There are no other sources for this proprietary, Apple-designed component."
The public comment period for those requests closes on August 1.

The requests have started to draw opposition from the public.

Trump has called for Apple to move its business back to the U.S. and has encouraged its CEO, Tim Cook, to move operations out of China.

The tech industry has been urging the Trump administration to call off its tariff threat, saying it would ensnare all consumer electronics, including laptops and video game consoles.

Apple announced the 2019 Mac Pro at the WWDC keynote this year.

President Trump is known for wanting companies to employ and manufacture products in the United States, as that would help get and keep more people employed.

The Wall Street Journal reported in June that Apple is shifting manufacturing of its new Mac Pro desktop computer to China from Texas. Apple was also asking to traffic exclusions for Magic Trackpad, Magic Mouse and USB cable.

Washington and Beijing have been engaged in a trade war for the past several months.

President Donald Trump said in a tweet on Friday that components from China for Apple's new Mac Pro computer would not be exempt from tariffs. Those additional tariffs haven't been imposed yet.

Trump has previously promised relief if companies can show that parts or products can only be obtained in China aren't "strategically important" to Chinese industrial programs, or that the duties would cause "severe economic harm".

In a letter to U.S. trade representative Robert Lighthizer, Apple had said tariffs would "also weigh on Apple's global competitiveness" since Chinese companies compete with the products Apple builds.
