No reason it should. With labor costs rising in China and the idea of supporting an untrustworthy Communist turd of a government that has never respected IP (or human) rights becomes increasingly unsavory, Apple and all other Western companies having products made in China will be smart to look elsewhere.

We'll see how resolute president Xi's regime is if companies start leaving in droves over the next few years, their economy falters, and more of their people are out of work.

I hope that happens regardless of what Trump does or if he's reelected or not.

It's just another data point for what a backward, corrupt country they are, similar to Russia and most countries of the Middle East.

That said, I wish Tim Cook and Apple would do less political engineering and attempting to affect societal change through social policy and focus on what they're legally obligated to do –– make good products and grow profits for shareholders.

Is there a single anal cyst that articulates how Apple was able to takeover and dominate the smartwatch and tablet market? It is the key to their domination in controlling most of the profits in every space they make products.

Google has made its last iPad rival
