Trump said he would 'get' Apple to make their products in America, not 'make' Apple.
That may all be said and good, but it seems Apple (and many other electronics manufacturers) might be hard to convince, as Jobs explained to Obama in 2012. An excerpt that captures the gist of the article:
Apple executives say that going overseas, at this point, is their only option. One former executive described how the company relied upon a Chinese factory to revamp iPhone manufacturing just weeks before the device was due on shelves. Apple had redesigned the iPhone’s screen at the last minute, forcing an assembly line overhaul. New screens began arriving at the plant near midnight.
A foreman immediately roused 8,000 workers inside the company’s dormitories, according to the executive. Each employee was given a biscuit and a cup of tea, guided to a workstation and within half an hour started a 12-hour shift fitting glass screens into beveled frames. Within 96 hours, the plant was producing over 10,000 iPhones a day.
" The speed and flexibility is breathtaking," the executive said. "There’s no American plant that can match that."
