Trump told the Wall Street Journal in an interview that Apple CEO Tim Cook promised him "three big plants, handsome plants" in the USA as part of the their talks over business-tax reform and investment.

Despite Donald Trump's claims to The Wall Street Journal, Apple won't be building three factories in the United States anytime soon. Why?

"I spoke to (Cook), he's promised me three big plants - big, big, big", Trump told the Wall Street Journal. He also did not say how many jobs they would create in the U.S.

Apple was yet to issue a statement on this. The company maintains just one factory in Ireland - a tax haven - making it unlikely Apple will independently bring three plants to the U.S. However, it can encourage its suppliers to do so.

In a series of tweets, Trump had said that after consulting his Generals and military experts, he decided not to allow transgenders serve in the USA military as it would result in tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail. Apple was one of the companies that came under fire from Trump, because it makes most of its products in China. For example, Cook may have meant that Apple's suppliers are building new plants in the USA, and not Apple itself. A Foxconn factory isn't necessarily an Apple factory.

Mr. Cook also said the company planned to invest at least $1-billion (U.S.) to support advanced manufacturing companies in the United States. "How does it help us when they make it in China?" Right now, Apple only has Mac Pros manufactured in the USA, and it hasn't even committed to continuing that.
