Trump: Apple’s Tim Cook made ‘very compelling’ case against tariffs


TIM COOK MADE A COMPELLING CASE AGAINST TARIFFS ON CHINA. LISTEN TO THIS.>>TIM WAS TALKING TO ME ABOUT TARIFFS, ONE OF THE THINGS HE MADE A GOOD CASE, SAMSUNG IS THEIR NUMBER ONE COMPETITOR, SAMSUNG IS NOT PAYING TARIFFS BECAUSE THEY’RE BASED IN SOUTH KOREA, IT IS TOUGH FOR APPLE TO PAY TARIFFS COMPETING WITH A GOOD COMPANY THAT IS NOT. HOW GOOD AFTER COMPETITOR? THEY ARE A VERY GOOD COMPETITOR. SO SAMSUNG IS NOT PAYING TARIFFS BECAUSE THEY’RE BASED IN A DIFFERENT LOCATION, MOSTLY IN SOUTH KOREA, BUT THEY’RE BASED IN SOUTH KOREA, I THINK HE MADE A VERY COMPELLING ARGUMENT SO I’M THINKING ABOUT IT. DAVID: REBECCA FAN NONE, TECH TITANS AUTHOR. WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT IT? DOES APPLE HAVE A CASE THAT TARIFFS SHOULDN’T APPLY WHAT THEY DO IN CHINA?>>APPLE IS COMPETING WITH SAMSUNG WHICH IS THE LEADING MOBILE APP COMPANY, I THINK THEY DO HAVE A CASE. WE NEED TO HAVE MORE OPEN ECONOMY, MORE FREE TRADE, BUT ON THE OTHER HAND, APPLE IS PRODUCING IN CHINA AND SAMSUNG IS PRODUCING IN SOUTH KOREA. SO THIS GIVES SAMSUNG A LEG UP OVER APPLE AND, SO TIM COOK DOES HAVE A CASE IN HIS SPECIFIC INCIDENT BUT OVERALL I THINK THAT, WE DO NEED THIS OPEN ECONOMY. WE NEED FREE TRADE. I THINK IT IS GOOD FOR THE GLOBAL INNOVATION ECONOMY OVERALL. I THINK IT HELPS CONSUMERS AND BUSINESSES. DAVID: BUT, THE QUESTION IS, CHINA MADE THIS HUGE, GREAT LEAP FORWARD. I THINK HE USED THAT PHRASE, BORROWING FROM MAO ZEDONG’S PHRASE, BUT HIGH-TECH THEY MADE A BIG LEAP. HOW MUCH OF THEIR BIG LEAP WAS BASED ON TECHNOLOGY THEY STOLE FROM US?>>I DON’T THINK THEY STOLE TECHNOLOGY FROM US. DAVID: YOU DON’T THINK THEY STOLE ANY TECHNOLOGY FROM US? I THINK EVEN CHINESE TECHNOLOGY WIZARDS ADMIT THERE WAS SOME OF THAT GOING ON.>>WHAT WAS HAPPEN, CHINA WAS COMING IN, INVESTING IN U.S. TECH COMPANIES. THEY INVESTED IN MANY LEADING COMPANIES IN THE U.S. INCLUDING UBER, LYFT, MAGIC LEAP, TESLA AND THEY WERE LEARNING. ALSO — DAVID: THEY WERE DOING MORE THAN LEARNING. THERE WERE SOME MEMBERS THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT THAT WERE SENT IN TO LITERALLY SPY ON TECH COMPANIES, STEAL SOME OF THAT HARDWARE OR SOMEHOW TRY TO DEVOLVE IT AND FIGURE OUT THE WAY THAT AMERICAN COMPANIES WERE EVOLVING WITH THAT TECHNOLOGY AND BRING IT TO CHINA. SO I MEAN, THERE REALLY WAS A CONCERTED EFFORT ON THE PART OF THE GOVERNMENT TO STEAL FROM THE UNITED STATES.>>I THINK THE FBI IS LOOKING AT 1000 INVESTIGATIONS RIGHT NOW. THEY’RE INVESTIGATING THESE CYBERSECURITY INCIDENTS, AND I THINK THE JURY IS STILL OUT. WE NEED TO SEE WHAT THE OUTCOME OF THAT INVESTIGATION IS. I DO THINK CHINA HAS COME IN TO THE U.S. THEY HAVE INVESTED IN OUR LEADING U.S. TECHNOLOGY COMPANIES. THEY HAVE GONE TO SCHOOL AT OUR FINEST SCHOOLS AND THEY HAVE WORKED IN OUR FINEST TECH COMPANIES IN SILICON VALLEY AND ELSEWHERE. THEY HAVE GONE BACK TO CHINA AND TAKEN A LOT OF KNOW HOW AND COPIED WHAT WE HAVE DONE IN THE U.S. AND MADE THE FACEBOOK OF CHINA, THE GOOGLE OF CHINA AND SO FORTH. BUT NOW TODAY, WHAT CHINA IS DOING IS THEY’RE ACTUALLY INNOVATING IN THEIR OWN RIGHT AND THESE — DAVID: FORGIVE ME FOR INTERRUPTING BUT DO YOU THINK THAT IS WHY THEY’RE MAKING PROGRESS ON 5G, IS THEIR OWN INNOVATION? CLEARLY THEY HAVE A TENFOLD GAIN ON US IN TERMS OF PLATFORMS FOR 5G THEY HAVE OVER THERE?>>THEY’RE DEFINITELY OUTSPENDING US IN 5G INFRASTRUCTURE. THEY’RE GETTING AHEAD IN OTHER VERY IMPORTANT TECH SECTORS SUCH AS A.I. CHINA IS, HAS A NATIONAL GOVERNMENT PRIORITY TO GET AHEAD IN AT LEAST 10 TECHNOLOGY SECTORS THAT REALLY MATTER. DAVID: LET’S TALK ABOUT A.I. FOR A SECOND. THIS IS SOMETHING THAT I’M SURE YOU KNOW, PETER THIEL, ONE OF THE GREAT MINE IN HIGH-TECH IS A PROBLEM. WHEN COMPANIES LIKE GOOGLE ARE TRADING INFORMATION ON A.I. IN THEIR DEALINGS WITH CHINESE COMPANIES, THE GOVERNMENT GETS INVOLVED AND SOME OF THAT A.I. FINDS ITS WAY TO THE MILITARY, THE CHINESE MILITARY, WHICH IS NOT OUR FRIEND. IS THAT A PROBLEM?>>WE DO HAVE COMPANIES, THE LEADING A.I. COMPANY IN THE WORLD, THE MOST VALUABLE A.I. COMPANY IN THE WORLD FROM CHINA. A COMPANY CALLED SINCE TIME. THEY ARE USING, VERY BIG IN FACIAL RECOGNITION WHICH CAN BE USED BY POLICE TO TRACK CRIMINALS. IT CAN BE USED TO TRACK JAYWALKERS. DAVID: WE’VE SEEN IT WITH THE HONG KONG PROTEST.>>EXACTLY, WE’VE SEEN IT BEING EMPLOYED IN THIS CASE.>>THEY ARE ACTUALLY WORKING WITH HONDA ON AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES, WORKING WITH QUALCOMM. QUALCOMM IS AN INVESTOR IN SENSE TIME. THEY ARE WORKING WITH QUALCOMM ON NEXT GENERATION DEVICES. IT IS NOT ALL SUCH A BAD, BAD SCENARIO. DAVID: IT DOES CORN ME. I HAVE TO ASK ONE FINAL QUESTION. WHO WINS WITH 5G. WHO GETS THEIR WHOLE SYSTEM TIED INTO 5G FIRST, CHINA OR THE UNITED STATES.>>WHAT IS HAPPENING NOW, YOU HAVE A RACE. CHINA HAS ITS OWN STANDARDS, DEVELOPING ITS OWN STANDARDS. IT IS BEING ACCEPTED IN MANY COUNTRIES AROUND THE WORLD. THE U.S. IS FIGHTING BACK. WE’RE NOT ALLOWING CHINA 5G TO BE IN THIS MARKET. SAME THING WITH AUSTRALIA. DAVID: BUT THE ANSWER TO THE QUESTION IS?>>WHO IS GOING TO WIN? I THINK THE JURY IS STILL OUT. I THINK WHAT IS HAPPENING IS THAT CHINA IS, CHINA WILL HAVE ITS OWN STANDARDS. THOSE STANDARDS WILL GO INTO ASIA. I THINK THE U.S. AND THE WESTERN WORLD WILL HAVE ITS OWN STANDARD. DAVID: WOW, TWO SYSTEMS?

    APPLE SHOULD BE MADE IN AMERICA. SMART AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE NOT BUYING APPLE PRODUCT BECAUSE IT'S MADE IN CHINA. I'LL BUY ANYTHING NOT MADE IN CHINA HOPEFULLY MADE IN AMERICA AND OTHER THAN CHINA. CHINA IS USING THOSE REVENUES FOR MILITARY BUILT UP AND WORLD POWER. EXAMPLE NOW IS HONG KONG.

  • Without the western market apple will die.

    We both know apple is struggling in China.

    Tell apple to move to USA or die. They have no good ideas anyway.

    Tell them bye bye. They can always automate like Mr Elon musk.

    Apple has a worm in it right now

  • Samsung is a SOUTH KOREAN Company and is in their OWN COUNTRY. APPLE is a US Company and where is it? China? I will not send my sons and nephews to fight China to protect TIM COOK's company when they decide to close down Apple in the future when they gleamed and stole everything they want from them.

  • how is she going to sit there in her fairy tail scarf and say China did not steal any ideas or Tech from America or any other country for that matter. well she's not a very good analysis a Democrat mostly probably most likely

  • "Samsung Is A Huge Korean Company" That Has Been In Mexico For Years Sending Television And Other Electronic Appliances Across The Border Ducking ☆American ☆Tariffs For Years Under The NAFTA Agreement That President ☆William J.

  • Dont give Apple sh*t ! As an American company they should bring back jobs to the US! Theyre not competing with Samsung, they just make stylish phones for fanboys. Theyre like betamax to vhs.

  • Samsung was fined a billion dollars because they stole the frame design from IPhone. Samsung steals just as much as China. The entire Asian world steals from us while in agreement not to pirate technology.

  • Lear King of Albion says:

    It has been super obvious for 3 years at least, since PRC built those islands in the South China Sea, that Apple's strategic decision to base its production and other parts of its business in the PRC put Apple and its shareholders in the middle of National Security issues. Hint: it was clear after Apple would not allow Federal Law enforcement to have access to the cell phone data of the San Bernadino shooters. Apple now makes a business profits argument about a National Security issue. At least some people are paying attention now.

  • simple solution… apple change country they deal from… there is cheap labor elsewhere. Apples profits are enormous and they have the nerve to cry foul?… move back to America and support it.

  • Tim of apple is setting on Hundreds of Billions. So he has nothing to worry about in life. But the rest of us are paying the cost for China free ride on the taxpayers of America and that needs to stop!!!”

  • Case against tariffs.
    USA technology is been stolen since more than 3decades and the revolution of IT & Electronics. The world Nations are thieves out of which China-India are Kamasutra fucker generations.

    Will SUE the world for stealing technology and involved in digital morphing of lawlessness.

  • It is a fact that any citizen of china is a spy, willing or not, comply or be imprisoned or worse. Every Chinese citizen should be expelled, Chinese investment in the US market/companies should also be prohibited.
    Apple is and has been an enabler for China to take US jobs and the insidious erosion of the west. I feel absolutely no pity for Apple, THEY have destroyed so many companies, YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOE.

  • Don’t wanna pay tariffs??? If ya make your product in the US with American workers than you won’t have tariffs…pretty simple

  • This commie tool can't even make eye contact. Making excuses for a country that everyone knows is moving towards global domination in the technology sector. Plus, their construction of military installations in the South China Sea. Check out the labels, folks. If it says "Made in China," just say NO!

  • SusanBailey AmazingEstate says:

    A more compelling argument is for Apple to be made in America. The Chinese will always have cheaper labor. If Americans were making Apple products, Cook wouldn’t have to worry about tariffs.

  • WisdomAboveGold.com says:

    Why should we care about companies that produce oversees???? Consider the tariffs an incentive to produce on American soil.

  • You have to ask 3 questions. 1. does south korea steal our proprietary technology? 2. Is south korea manipulating their currency lower? 3. Do we have almost 1 trillion dollar deficit with south korea ?

  • All foreign car companies have to link up with chinese companies. No choice. When that happens china steals the tech. My company chose not to go to china.

  • The Chinese along with some of DC Politicians have been stealing from America for many years and ones like the Clintons and Feinstein have been selling them our top-secret Military information and I would say the Chinese are far worse than the Russians by far

  • Wait, is Apple an American company? If majority of its employees are Chinese, Apple is a Chinese company. If Apple is a Chinese company, why do we care if any tariffs give advantages to Samsung?

  • Apple is registered in Ireland, right? And its manufacture factories are
    in China, not in the US. I bet majority of Apple's employees are not
    Americans. Why, do we give Apple free access to American market? Apple created jobs for China, paying tax to China, right?

  • Nicholas Nasti says:

    Of course Apple should pay tariffs. Samsung is not because they are in Korea… that's BS… Samsung should be paying tariffs too.

    If American companies don't even have a chance to compete based on advantages of costs in another country, that is a problem. If we don't put tariffs on ALL foreign companies, we are giving our business away.

    We go from being the manufacturers, profit makers, and the buyer market… to just the buyers.

    If you want access to our markets, you have to play by the rules… If you do not, we can apply a tariff to force it or shut them out of the market.

  • It's very unfortunate that the cable news are now being consulted by and giving platforms to incompetent people such ad this lady. She clearly does not know what she's talking about.

  • Lost 100% credibility and stoped the video when that woman said “I don’t think China stole from us”

    Ever China admits they have… fox loses more and more credibility when they invite these “experts” who don’t even live on the same planet as us commoners.

  • Good, let Apple pay tariffs as they sent out jobs to China to pay workers less than Samsung in S Korea. And Apple charges $150 more for a phone with less.

  • I have an absolute hatred for liberal/establishment turds. I would love to have an actual civil war that just divides up land and we go our own separate ways.

    This lady saying that China hasn't stolen tech is absurd. She is a perfect demonstration of why I would like to have a civil war happen.

  • Bucketandamop1 says:

    Lol she's paid by CGTV. In other words, she's paid by the Chinese government to spread Chinese propaganda to the west

  • WELL, MR. TIM COOK, GET OUT OF COMMUNIST CHINA!! THIS IS YOUR MISTAKE!! NOW YOU MUST PAY THE PRICE FOR ECONOMIC TREASON!! NO PITY FROM ME!! I THINK YOU NEED TO BE CUT DOWN TO SIZE!!

  • Having lived in Silicon Valley for 25+ years, hearing her denial propoganda on Chinese Intellectual theft is a bit shocking

  • APPLE move to another country without tarrifs and which does not use child labor or
    very hard working conditions for the adult workers. NO NO NO! Tarrifs on China are
    good.

  • THIS JUST IN
    Apple justifies its endless greed and exploitation of both Chinese workers and the US consumers…
    please Tim Cook, explain to us how you wont be able to sell $1k USD phones and monitor stands if your made to pay your fair share…

  • Excuse me ma'am, you might want to look at the Chinese history. They have doing that kind of dirty business for Decades. There's a Doc. on Netflix about the honey being tainted from China, someone's lying & I'll take my countries side. Thank You

  • She is a baught-out by China. Think about what is China commies doing with those techs to Muslim , Tibetans and ordinary Chinese in China.

  • Apple's Tim Cook made 'very compelling' case against tariffs! "The advantages China tariffs give to Samsung over Apple and Chinese technological advancement."???? First, Samsung has moved most of its factories in China to Vietnam or other countries to avoid tariffs, while Apple still has most of its products made in China. Also, Trump said China is our enemy, not our friend. Why should we give any advantage to Chinese technological advancement to benefit China-our enemy? Does this make any sense? If Apple doesn't want any tariffs, move all of its factories in China to other countries as Samsung did. Simple as it is. Why complaining?

  • She's naive or a bubblehead. Many Chinese nationals have been charged with theft or attempted theft of U.S. company proprietary information. DuPont is one case I recall.

  • Austin Wittman says:

    If we just shut chinna off compleetly within three years their best and brightest will have no choice but to move here becouse we have the money and buyers. Yes it will be verry hard at first but in the long run we will be better off. If we dont crush them finacialy we will end up haveing to do it millitary and that way is never good

  • America need to learn to compete with world products in quality and price instead of putting tariffs on everything to balance out the profit. That's robbery something thugs do. And China invest lot more than US in technology than US. US invest lot more in military.

  • This is just one of many ways industry jobs, tech and IP is stolen from China…who is this twit? Example, China imposes a 25% tariff and other luxury taxes on importing our cars, when we only put 2.5% on theirs. Our companies, like Tesla are forced to move to China in order to sell in their country and then they also export those cars back to America. China also requires about 60% ownership in a forced partnership. After they suck all the IP and jobs away from the US and dominate the industry, they can force you to sell the rest of the company to them at pennies on the dollar. Eventually you have nothing if you play the game they want us to play it. I'm grateful President Trump is standing up to them…finally. Trump want's to do away with tariffs, but will use them to get a level playing field.

  • Oliversfilmsdotcom Films says:

    0:49 "Samsung which is the leading mobile app company", which doesn't make any sense, but if she meant the leading mobile phones company then no that's also not true, the real thing to say is Samsung which are one of the leading smartphone companies, because Huawei also make very good phones with high megapixel cameras, just as fast wired and faster wireless charging for a cheaper price.
