Apple will spend 'vast sums' in U.S, says Trump

Donald Trump said that tech giant Apple would be spending 'vast sums' of money in the U.S in a tweet ahead of a dinner meeting with its CEO Tim Cook.

The meeting follows Thursday's announcement from Apple that it has invested roughly 60 billion in the U.S, and currently employs some 90,000 people in the country.

Many of the tech giant's products are assembled in China and the company opposes incoming tariffs -- an issue Trump is fixated on -- of 10 percent on goods manufactured in China, due to come into force on September 1.

Trump has rejected Apple's calls for an exemption on its products, tweeting in July the company should, "Make them in the USA, No Tariffs!".

But his administration announced tariffs on some goods would be delayed until December.
