I remember August 2011, when the world learned that Steve jobs resigns as Apple CEO, and in his place comes the most famous and media Tim cook. It was obvious to everyone that the days of the company are numbered, because it was associated with jobs. But time passed and Tim cook proved that the CEO does not necessarily have to pore over the creation of new gadgets to be considered a good leader. Recently this version confirmed the Donald trump.
According to trump, Tim cook is a great leader who best understands how to run a business to achieve success. The US President made this statement following the meeting with the CEO of Apple, which took place last week.

This time the initiator of the meeting, notably, made himself Tim cook. However, he had a good reason.

Therefore, even the iPhone, which consists of components that are released in different parts of the world, for the laws of the United States is no different from the smartphones of Huawei or Xiaomi.
Cook’s attitude to the current President of the United States before his election to this post was pretty skeptical. Therefore, most likely cook had to steel himself to make an appointment with Trump to ask him not to impose Apple products to import duties. However, the sacrifice that went to the CEO came to fruition, and now the iPhone, iPad and Mac will keep the old prices until at least December 1, when a new package of fees.
