Did they order Chinese? Were tariffs on the menu?
Apple CEO Tim Cook has met with Donald Trump at least five times over the past year in a desperate bid to keep the US president on-side as he wages a trade war with China.
Cook has been on a charm offensive with the Trump, the latest installment of which took place on Friday, when the two sat down to dinner while the president is on a working vacation at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey.
“Having dinner tonight with Tim Cook of Apple. They will be spending vast sums of money in the U.S. Great!” Trump tweeted on Friday evening.
My take: “Desperate bid” is Business Insider spin. Judging from the results so far, Cook knows exactly what buttons to push, and when.
