Trump says Apple will build three plants in the U.S.

President Donald Trump, who sparred often with Apple during the presidential campaign about Apple's dependency on overseas factories and workers, said during an interview today that Apple will be building three plants in the U.S. While this news has not been confirmed by the company, Trump stated that he was told by Apple CEO Tim Cook that Apple would build "three big plants, beautiful plants." The president said in Time Magazine after the election last year, that he wanted Apple to build its best plant ever in the U.S. "even if it’s only a foot bigger than some place in China."

He should go back to his reality TV shows and leave this country to better hands. What a shame.

Trump being elected is mainly the media / Democrats fault, because they markedly influenced the Republican primaries. So, you got what you deserved. See below for explanation. During the primaries, the media / Democrats pumped Trump up, they covered his silly comments with huge amounts of free coverage, like Little Marco, Lying Ted, etc.... They didn't critique him much. Once he won the primary, then they went after him. They released the Access Hollywood video right before the election. Why didn't they knock on Trump during the primaries and release the Access Hollywood video then when it was just Trump and Cruz and Rubio? Because they didn't like Cruz and Rubio, and they wanted Trump to win the primary as they thought Trump would lose "big league" in the general election, and that he'd be the only one who could lose to Hillary. They lost that bet big time. Trump was not my first pick, and I'm not a fan of some of his dumb comments, but Democrats / media did influence the election by helping him win the primary.

The media is controlled by liberals. Anyone here wondering why a very highly rated TV show like 'One Man Standing' got cancelled?!

Media is run by sponsors who pay for the content. Sponsors were probably concerned that people don't even know the show was called "Last Man Standing." Rupert Murdoch, Steve Bannon (Seinfeld/Trump advisor), Steve Mnuchin (producer/Treasury Secretary), Donald Trump (The Apprentice/President), Arnold Schwarzeneger, Sonnie Bono, Ronald Reagan would probably wonder how they cashed and are still cashing checks from the liberal controlled media.

Because they are not highly rated enough, or not getting enough interest from advertisers. It's pretty common. I can't help but notice how terrible you example is. Is a failing tim allen show really the best example of a liberally controlled media you could think of? Is the odd couple getting canceled an example of conservative control on media?
