Trump To Dine Tonight With Apple CEO Tim Cook

The Hill reports:

President Trump will dine with Apple CEO Tim Cook on Friday, praising the tech leader in a tweet for making investments in the U.S. Trump announced late Friday that he would meet with the CEO, a dinner conversation that will take place just days after the president met with a number of business leaders representing various industries affected by his trade conflict with several foreign countries.

Cook and Trump have talked trade issues before, the last time being in April when the Apple CEO visited the White House amid Cook and other tech industry leaders’ push for a more open trading relationship with China, where Apple maintains some manufacturing facilities. The Trump administration’s trade relationship with China has since deteriorated with the White House issuing billions of dollars’ worth of more tariffs.
