Donald Trump: We're Gonna Get Apple to Start Building Their Damn Computers in This Country

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said he would get Apple to starting building their computers in the United States in a speech to students at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va.

During his speech, Trump stressed the importance of bringing manufacturing back to the United States.

Here's his comment about Apple...

"We have such amazing people in this country. Smart, sharp, energetic. They're amazing. I was saying make America great again. I actually think we can say now, and I really believe this, we're going to get things coming. We're going to get Apple to start building their damn computers and things in this country instead of in other countries. I honestly think I can say, and I've said it for the last two weeks, and I mean it 100% or I wouldn't say it. We're going to make America great again, greater than ever before."

What do think about Trump's statement? Should the government intervene to encourage or force companies to manufacture in the U.S.A.? Could Trump get it done if he was elected?

Manufacturing will never move back to North America. Greed is an all too powerful motivator. There are not enough tax incentives in the world to topple the almighty dollar. Besides, would the average American want/be able to afford a $2,000.00 handset?

$600+ dollars is a lot of money to pay for an iPhone already. Two year later already a new phone comes out, and now sales are down. Market is down. Computers (and phones I read) are still popular with Apple users but the competition is more popular as far as new innovations are concerned. That is how companies start to go down. Obsolescence is built into the new computers. Other companies have brought out touch computers... why hasn't apple? I noticed awhile ago Apple wasn't keeping up with the competitions, but the competition learned from Apple how to make more user friendly equipment. I have been with Apple since 1984 and I'm still a fan, but I see that Apple is not the same company it used to be. I may be forced due to economics and retirement to downgrade to a less expensive company in the future.

Absolutely, I am in favor of "helping" all industries move their manufacturing back to the U.S. through various tax incentives.

I think apple won't mind bring it back home, all they going to do in return is charge us more to buy it.
