A minute from the Apple CEO’s interview with Bloomberg TV’s David Rubenstein.
I wouldn’t want to say what he said, because that’s not the way I look at it. What I talked about, I talked about trade, and the importance of trade, and how I felt, that two countries trading together make the pie larger. It’s true, undoubtedly true, that not everyone has been advantaged from that in either country, and we’ve got to work on that. I felt that tariffs were not the right approach there, and I showed him some more analytical kind of things to demonstrate why.
We also talked about immigration and the importance of fixing the Dreamer issue now, we’re only one court ruling away from a catastrophic case there.
My take: Tim Cook has forgotten more about trade and tariffs than Donald Trump will ever know.
