I find it funny that there is any Chinese nationalism, other than the fake kind China's citizens have when forced to for appearance. I can only surmise that living under that kind of oppression and misinformation since birth means they don't know any different, so it's easier to believe their government knows best and that the West is decadent.

Since China's government has walled off the internet from the rest of the world, it's people have no source of news except that sanctioned by their government.

I can believe employees of the government or of companies with close ties to it would be in a bad position if they use iPhones, but that's pretty amazing if the population in general has suddenly turned on Apple as well because of the trade war and nationalism.

Not only China... sales are down all over Europe, non China Asia and in India - the 2nd largest market... Apple is virtually nom existant... Sales are low in S. America and falling in the US. Sales failures are most dramatic where Chinese phones are now competing with price and innovation. AAPL has nothing... neither is it talking about anything! Except video content... somrtime in the future.

I think that AAPL has already punted.... As the Chinese say... AAPL has a looser mentality.
