Trump to tour Apple factory with Tim Cook on Wednesday

President Trump will tour an Apple manufacturing plant in Austin, Texas, with Apple CEO Tim Cook on Wednesday. 

White House spokesman Judd Deere confirmed an Austin American-Statesman report that the tour would occur in a tweet Saturday. 

An unidentified White House official told the newspaper that Trump, Cook and senior administration officials will hear from employees about how products are made there.

The newspaper reported that Trump will travel with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow as well as his daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner.

Apple announced in September that it would continue manufacturing its Mac Pro in Austin after U.S. officials agreed to exempt certain computer parts from the administration's latest tariffs. Prior to the announcement, it was reported that Apple might have had to move production to China.
