President Trump Says No to Apple’s Request for Tariff Relief on Mac Pro Parts Made in China

President Trump Says No to Apple’s Request for Tariff Relief on Mac Pro Parts Made in China

U.S. President Donald Trump has tweeted to say Apple will not be granted tariff exemptions or relief on Mac Pro parts made in China. The President said in the tweet if Apple would “Make them in the USA, no Tariffs!”


Earlier this month, Apple asked the Trump administration for tariff exclusions for components for the new Mac Pro and associated accessories like the Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad. Otherwise the components are subject to a 25% tariff on Chinese imports.

In the exclusion requests, Apple indicated that “there are no other sources for this proprietary, Apple-designed component.”

The new Mac Pro will be assembled in China by Apple assembly partner Quanta Computer. The Mac Pro that is being replaced has been assembled in Texas since its 2013 release and has been Apple’s only major hardware product made in the U.S.

Apple recently told the Wall Street Journal that the new Mac Pro is designed and engineered in the U.S. and includes U.S.-manufactured parts. An Apple company spokesperson also pointed out that the company supports manufacturing in 30 U.S. states and spent $60 billion last year with over 9,000 U.S. suppliers.
