145 - Trump and Apple’s CEO Talk Business in Texas
Listen now
A walk to remember. Apple CEO Tim Cook and President Donald Trump in Texas this week, and it’s a high stakes photo op. They’re at the factory in Austin Texas where Apple’s Mac Pro computer is assembled.   Cook no doubt wants to make it hard for the president to put tariffs on Mac Pro components. Cook has said unless they continue to be exempt from tariffs, he’ll have to move manufacturing completely to China.  The president wants to push Apple and U.S. CEOs more broadly to manufacture here instead of in China.   But I think this whole scene is a bit of a sham. I’ll tell you why.  Joining me this week, Ina Fried, chief tech correspondent at Axios.  We’ve got more than Trump and Cook, we’ve got Disney Plus hacking, Microsoft teaming up on Slack, and more.   Learn more about your ad choices.
