Apple CEO Tim Cook said that his company will start a $1 billion fund to promote advanced manufacturing jobs in the United States.
"We're announcing it today. So you're the first person I'm telling," Cook told "Mad Money" host Jim Cramer on Wednesday. "Well, not the first person because we've talked to a company that we're going to invest in already," he said, adding that Apple will announce the first investment later in May.
The fund comes as President Donald Trump has made bringing back manufacturing jobs a big part of his agenda, and it fits into Apple's larger effort to create jobs across its spectrum, from its own employees to app developers to its suppliers.
As advanced manufacturing jobs are in high demand in the U.S., the sector was already high on Apple's list of priorities, and Cook hopes the investment will spur even more job creation.This shows how Wall Street and the Silicon Valley played the game last year. They bought Hillary and hoped for (maybe even voted for) Donald Trump because his economic policies are the best for America because they restore capitalism.
So why did they donate to Hillary?
You gotta pay the troll. They did not want to be on her bad side if she were elected.
On November 8, 2016, the American people said, "Trump the Establishment!"
