US President Donald Trump thanked Apple chief Tim Cook on Friday after the tech giant revealed plans for a $1 billion campus in Texas that is predictable to create thousands of jobs outside its Silicon Valley base. This new campus will be near Apple’s prevailing facility in Austin and that includes 6,200 workers. With time the number of workers will increase to almost 15,000.

In the month of January, the California-based company planned to invest Rs.2.15 lakh crores (Indian currency) in the US for over five years and it creates more 20,000 new jobs. Along with the overseas profit has banished the rate much lower with the Trump administration and became the debated tax cut last year.
The president has been putting huge pressure on constructors to move jobs to the US, with the White House imposing heavy charges to counter and that is also called the partial trade practices. Trump’s seriously praise for Apple stands in plain contrast to his response to General Motors after the conclusion for the last month to cut 15 percent of its workforce and close Canadian and US plants.
Trump told to Fox News on Thursday that he feels nasty about the recent refurbishment to the North American free trade deal meant GM would have trouble in shifting production to Mexico. He also feels sad for people as they have to travel out of their country and that might be uncomfortable for them.
Employees at the new Apple campus will work in sectors including engineering, research, operations, finance, sales, and customer support. The company is also planning to expand over 1,000 workers each at new sites in Seattle, San Diego and Culver City, California, and add hundreds of jobs in Pittsburgh, New York, Boulder, Colorado, Boston, and Portland.
