Despite Donald Trump's Tweet, Ford Won't Make Hatchback In US

But disagreements between the two major economic powers run deeper than just the trade balance and tensions remain over limits on USA firms' access to Chinese markets, intellectual property protection, technology transfers, and investment.

Apple is highly exposed to a trade war between the U.S. and China.

The statement came after Trump tweeted about an article from August 31, when Ford announced that it was canceling plans to make the Focus Active, a compact crossover, in China and ship them to the United States. China is retaliating with its own tariffs on USA products.

"[Ford can make Focuses] in many other plants around the world, so if they made a decision to continue to sell a Focus variant in the U.S. market, there are several options other than building it in the United States".

"If the USA side obstinately clings to its course and takes any new tariff measures against China, then the Chinese side will inevitably take countermeasures to resolutely protect our legitimate rights", Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told a regular briefing, when asked about Trump's warning. Trump wrote, citing a Reuters article posted on CNBC.

"Without the tariffs, the business case was pretty solid for that model in the United States market", Kim said.

Elon Musk smokes marijuana with Joe Rogan during live interview
Musk's increasingly wild ride for some time now and it appears as though things aren't getting any smoother any time soon. Before the podcast came to a close, Musk told Rogan that he had already received inquiries about the controversial toke.

The Trump administration has imposed tariffs on $50 billion worth of Chinese goods, including some automobiles, in a move Trump has touted as necessary to punish Beijing for what he says are its unfair trade practices and intellectual property theft. It makes many of its products for the USA market in China, and it also sells gadgets including the iPhone in China, making them a potential target for Chinese retaliation against the Trump tariffs.

The automaker has already said it has no plans to restart production elsewhere.

Apple told trade officials in a letter on Friday that the proposed tariffs would affect prices for a "wide range" of Apple products, including its watch.

Mohan also predicted that Apple would need to raise prices by 8 percent if it shifted 10 percent of its manufacturing to the USA - which he called the "most likely" scenario.

In the letter, Apple asks the United States government to "reconsider these measures and work to find other, more effective solutions that leave the USA economy and USA consumer stronger and healthier than ever before".
