Donald Trump drew some ire on the campaign trail in January when he said companies like Apple needed to stop building all of their products overseas. Now it appears, following his victory, that his pledge to bring more jobs back to America is already having an effect.
Sources told Nikkei Asian Review that its two iPhone assemblers, Foxconn and Pegatron, are "looking into making iPhones in the U.S." instead of just China.
One of the sources said, "Foxconn complied, while Pegatron declined to formulate such a plan due to cost concerns."
Another source confirmed the development but pointed out that, "Making iPhones in the U.S. means the cost will more than double."
The source mentioned Trump's pledge to bring Apple jobs back home as a factor in the decision.
What do you think of this?
