Trump talks to Tim Cook about China tariffs, Samsung competition

Washington, Aug 19 (UNI) US President Donald Trump has said that he talked to Apple Inc's Chief Executive Tim Cook about impact of US tariffs on Chinese imports and Apple's South Korean competitor Samsung.
Trump on Sunday said Cook made a 'good case' that tariffs could effect Apple while Samsung does not face the same hurdle because much of its manufacturing is in South Korea.
"It’s tough for Apple to pay tariffs if it’s competing with a very good company that’s not," Trump told reporters at New Jersey Airport. "I thought he made a very compelling argument, so I'm thinking about it."
Trump has ordered 10 per cent tariffs on an additional 300 billion dollar on goods imported from China. Originally, all of those tariffs were scheduled to go into effect on September 1, but some of the import duties delayed until December 15 which include consumer electronics such as cell phones.
Apple's MacBook laptops and iPhones would not face the additional tariffs until December 15, but some of the company's other products, including its AirPods, Apple Watch and HomePod, would be subject to the levies on September 1.
Apple is expected to release its new version of the iPhone in September.
