Donald Trump is itchin' for a fight. Or at least it seems that way.
The president lashed out at Apple on Friday morning, for instance, warning Tim Cook the White House will show no mercy on the company when it comes to parts made in China. "Apple will not be given Tariff waiver, or relief, for Mac Pro parts that are made in China", Trump flatly declared. "Make them in the USA, no Tariffs!"
That was just before lunchtime in Washington.
Less than an hour later, Trump blasted France over the digital tax kerfuffle. "France just put a digital tax on our great American technology companies", the president reminded America.
Of course, Trump has repeatedly threatened to fine some of those same "great American technology companies", a irony that most people in the president's position would probably avoid drawing attention to in the interest of not coming across as hypocritical. But Trump being Trump, he came right out and said it. "If anybody taxes them, it should be their home Country, the USA", the president said, reiterating remarks he made during last month's wild interview with Maria Bartiromo.
