In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, President Trump revealed Cook's promise that Apple will build "three big plants, lovely plants" in the United States. For instance, Cook may have said that Apple's suppliers are building new factories in the U.S., rather than Apple itself. Trump had then stated it would be one of his goals to convince Apple to set up a "big" manufacturing plant in America if elected. In a recent interview, President Trump claims that the company has finally promised to bring some of those manufacturing jobs to Americans by building three plants.
