Apple Stock Drops as Trump Discusses Potential iPhone Tariff

As for China, the only "fair deal" would be for it to open the doors to USA competition.

The latter action, if it occurs, could have a major impact on the video game industry.

And just days ahead of Trump's planned meeting with Xi at the G20 summit, the USA president vowed to put tariffs on all remaining imports from China if the two sides failed to reach a deal, according to The Wall Street Journal.

He added that any potential backlash from United States consumers could be tempered if the tariff rate on Apple products was just 10 percent, according to the newspaper.

While the Trump Administration is worrying about consumer reaction, Donald Trump suggested a 10% increase of the price wont change much and “people could stand that very easily”.

What's the endgame in the US-China trade war?

US stocks dipped in choppy trading on Tuesday after President Donald Trump's threat to move ahead with additional tariffs on Chinese goods weighed on industrial stocks.
