The president recently visited Austin to tour the Apple manufacturing facilities in November 2019.

“It’s an honor to be here," President Trump said in November 2019. "We’re seeing the beginning of a very powerful and important plant, and anybody that followed my campaign, I would always talk about Apple, that I want to see Apple building plants in the United States, and that’s what’s happening. Tim Cook is somebody that I greatly respect, a great leader, a great businessman, and it’s a very special day. Our country is doing well, probably better than ever before, certainly from the standpoint of the economy.”
