Apple will invest $1 billion to promote advanced manufacturing jobs in the U.S.

Tim Cook may disagree with President Donald Trump on many topics, but creating manufacturing jobs in the U.S. is definitely not one of them. This fact became clear again yesterday when, in an interview with CNBC, Apple’s CEO said his company planned to invest $1 billion in a fund to promote creation of advanced manufacturing jobs in the U.S.

As we all remember, during the presidential election, Trump nibbled Apple for manufacturing some of the company’s main products in China, but the announcement that Cook made yesterday looks like a good response to this criticism and will probably be welcomed by most Americans. And despite the fact that Apple’s CEO has been against Donald Trump's election since his campaign first started, he joined the President’s tech summit in December 2016 and, after the meeting, expressed his readiness to work with the Government on key areas including privacy and security, education, and creating jobs.

“Creating jobs is a key part of what we do by giving people opportunity not only with people that work directly for Apple, but the large number of people that are in our ecosystem. We’re really proud that we’ve created 2 million jobs, just in this country”, Tim Cook said back then in a statement to Apple’s employees.
