An anonymous reader quotes a report from CNBC: In a tweet on Friday, President Trump said his administration will not grant Apple any relief on Mac Pro parts made in China. “Apple will not be given Tariff wavers (sic), or relief, for Mac Pro parts that are made in China,” President Trump said. “Make them in USA, no Tariffs!” Apple asked for waivers on tariffs on the Mac Pro. Apple said it wanted to be exempt on some parts it uses for the new Mac Pro, including a power supply unit, the stainless-steel enclosure, finished mice and trackpads and circuit boards. “There are no other sources for this proprietary, Apple-designed component,” Apple said in a filing. Apple shifted production of the Mac Pro to China in June, saving shipping costs for components that are supplied near Shanghai.
