Trump said that Apple CEO Tim Cook called him and committed to build “three big plants, beautiful plants” in the United States.For now, there’s no detail beyond that.

Apple also generally prefers to work with outside suppliers, so it can source parts from multiple companies and shield itself from risk. Apple recently invested $200 million in Corning, which supplies cover glass for iPhones, with the intention of supporting the company’s manufacturing efforts, already located in Kentucky. Foxconn, a major Apple supplier, is also said to be planning its first US factory.
