"It is hard to see how tariffs that hurt US companies and USA consumers will advance the government's objectives with respect to China's technology policies", Apple said in the September 5 letter. "Exciting!" Trump said in the tweet. There are no anti-American sentiments or boycotting of U.S. brands by China's auto buyers, he said at a media conference in Beijing.auto retail sales have dropped for three straight months in China, with economic woes threatening to end the vehicle market's nearly three-decade expansion. "Make your products in the United States instead of China", he said.

Trump has repeatedly called for companies to move production to the USA, or to keep it there, while pushing aggressive trade actions aimed at narrowing the United States trade deficit. "As a result, tariffs will ultimately reduce the economic benefit we generate for the United States", Apple said. Office Depot also said the tariffs would impact small- and medium-sized USA companies.

Mobile phones, the biggest USA import from China, have so far been unaffected but would be engulfed if Mr Trump activates the $267bn tariff list.

Some components for Apple products, including glass from manufacturers like Corning, are made in the United States, the company has said.

A mixed open for markets in Europe as investors absorbed the latest Chinese trade data for August and Friday's sharp jump in USA wages to 2.9%, matching the levels last seen at the beginning of this year. But the president told reporters Friday that imposing tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese products "will take place very soon depending on what happens".

There was some relief earlier Friday that Trump did not immediately impose levies on $200 billion of Chinese goods after the passing of a deadline for a public consultation.

The potential for a U.S. Federal Reserve rate hike after a U.S. labor market report showed wages posting their largest annual increase in more than nine years pushed 2-year Treasury yields to 2.715 percent, the highest in 10 years. He then asked it to "start building new plants now". "We are puzzled as to why the Administration may be using tariffs in part to re-engineer global ICT (information, communication and technology) supply chains that have served USA companies so well".

Establishing a coalition of the willing is nonsense since most of the countries Trump wants to include in it are victims of his unwarranted trade war. Apple may "fractionally" increase production in the USA over the next decade or so, he continued, but he nevertheless expects the US share of Apple's manufacturing to remain small, at less than 10 percent.

"It's inevitable that the new duties will lead companies to review their supply chains globally - overnight they will become 25 percent less competitive than they were", said Christopher Rogers, a supply chain expert at trade data firm Panjiva.
