Last night, the White House hosted an official meeting between US President Donald Trump and Apple CEO Tim Cook. This was reported by the first lady of the United States, having published a photo on Twitter.
The President of the United States and I were glad to have dinner with Tim Cook last night in Bedminster. I’m proud of what Cook does at Apple – big innovations and investments in the US, which will have a positive impact on our economy!
– Melania Trump wrote.
By the way, Tim Cook took over as CEO on August 24, 2011, when the health of the founder of the company Steve Jobs significantly deteriorated. To this position, he personally recommended to his colleague, who previously worked as chief operating officer in Apple.
The president and the head of the technological giant discussed many pressing problems, including the rate for gadgets. Not so long ago, Tim Cook said that some of the tariffs approved by Trump are inherently “tax on consumption.”
I am optimistic and I hope that our country will cope with the problems. We also hope that the number of adequate people prevails,
– said the general director of Apple.
Recall, during the second term of Barack Obama, Tim Cook criticized the ex-president and his administration in their struggle against data encryption and an attempt to gain access to the “keys” of popular instant messengers. Whether the head of Apple supports the policy of the new US leader remains unknown.
