    The US lost Apple's manufacturing jobs years ago, and probably for good. Steve Jobs is rumored to have said as much at a high-power Silicon Valley dinner in 2011, when he told President Barack Obama "those jobs aren't coming back." But billionaire kleptomaniac Donald Trump thinks he'll be the one to get them back.

    Speaking at Liberty University today, Trump escalated his rhetoric on Apple's overseas manufacturing, and claimed somehow the US would reclaim those jobs in the future. "We have such amazing people in this country: smart, sharp, energetic, they're amazing," Trump said. "I was saying make America great again, and I actually think we can say now, and I really believe this, we're gonna get things coming... we're gonna get Apple to start building their damn computers and things in this country, instead of in other countries."
    i hope mexico pays for it

    He's pouring gasoline into the retarded fire instead of extinguishing it like a reasonable person.

    So no matter how it's twisted and turned he's doing the whole world a disservice

    If this dude wins(please lose Trump you're fucking walking satire) I wonder how much of this shit he's spewing he'll live up to. I have a feeling he's just saying shit at this point to get votes, rather than making actual plans.

    lol no they'll be more expensive due to higher manufacturing cost

    which is why this isn't happening, Apple would lose a ton of money trying to keep prices competitive while having to pay for american labor

    Call him an idiot, but that's still ap erson who managed to accumulate great amount of money. And people like that just can't be called idiots.

    On topic... I'm pretty sure he will do that simply by invading China, so all manufactures will technically be in the USA :D !

    I just find it interesting that everyone here is abusing the shit out of Trump for his proposal when he hasn't even mentioned any specifics about it, but if lord and saviour ol' Bernie said that he would 'bring manufacturing jobs back to America', everyone would be lapping that shit up so hard and posting shit like 'the only person who actually cares about us' 'feel the bern' 'Bernie 2016'.

    I certainly don't like defending Trump but come on.

    He gains voters whenever he is majorly featured in the media because voters vote for they people they know, not what they know ABOUT those people.

    You can cover your ears but the news will still be published because it's the kind of garbage the masses want to read.

    Most of facepunch sees through his bullshit anyways, so there's nothing to gain by ignoring him. If anything, I think these threads are good so people realize that he might be a threat, and get involved in politics. I know it's fun to treat him like a joke because the intenet is already mostly against him but but there's a lot more people in America than just the liberal and tech savvy people in urban and suburban areas that make up the majority online.

    Ignoring the Trump hate...

    You won't get China's slave labor jobs by making Apple build in America. You would get a team of primarily industrial engineers to create assembly lines for Apple products, and then hire technicians to maintain the line. Most electronic devices are assembled by hand in China. You might get 20k jobs max back for doing this but it would do two things: raise the price of Apple products and combat China's slave labor economy.
