    Mm..also, Trump failed to take into account robotics. So, jobs for Americans or Chinese workers will increasingly become irrelevant.

    According to the article, in one Foxconn factory, 60,000 jobs were eliminated by robotics automation.

    But knowing the peculiarities of the new American President (God help America), he would probably prefer American robots to Chinese robots. U.S.A.! U.S.A.!......Lol!

    LOL And Foxconn plans to fully automate its production lines.

    Apple probably isn't planning to move manufacturing back else Tim wouldn't be wooing India.

    And even if Foxconn moved their manufacturing to the US, their supply chain is going to stay put. That's going to cut into Foxconn's, and eventually Apple's bottom line.

    Plus Apple just built R&D facilities in China and Indonesia, is that planning for moving to the US? Don't think so.

    Our govt also does the same thing the Chinese are doing the only difference is it is more limited.

    Difference between a one party system and a democratic system.
