Donald Trump tweeted that he opened a large Apple factory in Texas. According to him, she will provide a well-paid job to the Americans.
As Western tech journalists noted, the Trump factory actually opened six years ago. Since then, it has been producing Mac Pro for the US market.
According to John Paczkowski of BuzzFeed News, the factory visited by the president is not even managed by Apple. His colleague from CNBC, Steve Kovach, also noted that the company does not own a factory.
Apparently, Trump confused the opening of the factory with the expansion of Apple’s production in Austin, although this was not even included in his tour. On November 20, the company announced plans to build a new campus in the city to build the latest Mac Pros.
The current factory, which Trump visited, has really been working since 2013. They decided to expand it as part of Apple’s program to support the US economy along with an increase in presence in other American cities.
