Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple attended a private meeting with United States President Donald Trump on Wednesday, April 25. The discussion was focused on the trade. Cook also said that they discussed the newly taxed tariffs on China and the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
Trump has released 25 % taxes on about $50 billion worth of Chinese products, indicating a “tremendous intellectual property theft problem” in previous U.S./China trade relations. The interview on “The David Rubenstein Show: Peer-to-Peer Conversations,” Cook revealed about the past trade policies which had their disadvantages. But they still kept that Trump’s tariffs are “not the right approach” in that condition.
They both discussed the Delayed Action for Childhood Arrivals program. The program which guards young emigrants who were taken into the U.S. as children from exile. The Trump government settlement to end DACA was blocked in January by a national judge in San Francisco. The delegates of the administration will strive to convince the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that it was proved in the move to end the program.
After Trump has signed a governing order against DACA early last year. Apple and some other main tech companies confined an open letter to Trump supporting the importance of the program. Cook also addressed his support of DACA throughout the year. He also told Rubenstein in this week’s interview that We’re only one ruling on a catastrophic case there.
So the interview was all about the new taxes and tariffs policy in the U.S.
