A case of loosers attracted to loosers.
Trump wants to force Apple to assemble all Apple products in the USA without explaining where the labour supply will come from to do this. He would have to put a door in the wall to let Mexicans in. Also, ignoring the increased cost and sourcing of components which are manufactured in China. Apple will simply move their HQ to another jurisdiction.
He promised to have some nice big welcoming doors on that beautiful wall, he really did!! And only the right ones will be let in! Not the "rapists and murderers"!!
Now to the heart of the matter, Apple, or any such companies manufacturing in the US will employ totally different manufacturing processes and technology. I am trying to dig up a study which I read sometime back by some manufacturing Engineers estimated that an additional 8-10% on the FBMC of Apple products fully made in the US. However, the 500k workers in China will be 100k in the US on a highly automated, highly robotic factory floor!
However, quite frankly, you cannot force a company to do manfg here or there. You can create incentives (or disincentives) which make the value proposition case for here. This however, needs to be done within the context of existing bilateral, multilateral, various existing WTO, OECD etc trading rules! These cannot just be shredded!!
If Trump should win, his entire first term will be spent working on these frameworks before anyone can actually act on it. The gutting of America's manufacturing base was a 25 year process. It will not turn around overnight!! It's a real big tanker to turn around, but there is an iceberg out there!!
What Trump has done is expose the frustration and anger festering in the USA which, if not addressed, will one day explode, much to the peril of the entire nation!! I don't think anyone fully understood/believed this until he burst onto the scene!! The Trump locomotive is good for the nation, the GOP should not try shenanigans to thwart the voice of the people, for regardless of what we wish to hear, it is the voice of the people!
Take this in the context of "Black Lives Matter", it's the cry for help, to he heard, and issues to be addressed. Address Black and White livelihood and "Black Lives Matter" will not really matter!! Politicians should not trivialize either!!
