In January 2017, Trump said he talked to Apple's CEO Tim Cook over the phone, promising to build "three big plants" in the United States
Donald Trump  US President Donald Trump has once again mistakenly claimed that Cupertino-based tech giant Apple plans to build new factories in the country.
During a speech in the White House on Friday focusing on the US economy, Trump says: "Apple alone brings in $ 230 billion and they build new plants, they build a fantastic campus, they are going to spend their money very wise, but they use it in our country, not in another country. "
"It was made possible by the new tax cuts and reform plan," he added.

What Apple actually announced in January was to contribute $ 350 billion to the US economy over the next five years, which includes an estimated $ 55 billion investment in 2018.
"The company plans to establish an Apple campus on a new location, which will initially provide technical support to customers. The location of this new facility will be announced later this year, says Apple.
Investments will concentrate on three areas where Apple has had the biggest impact on job placement: Direct employment from Apple, spending and investments with Apple's domestic suppliers and manufacturers, and grants for the fast-growing Apple app created with the iPhone and App Store.
Apple, already the largest US taxpayer, expected repatriation tax payments of approximately $ 38 billion required by Recent changes to the Tax Code.
As part of the total investment, Apple will spend an estimated $ 55 billion with American suppliers and manufacturers in 2018.
Apple expects to invest over USD 30 billion in US investment over the next five years and create over 20,000 new jobs through hiring on existing campus and opening a new one. Apple already has 84,000 employees in all 50 states.
Over $ 10 billion of Apple's expanded investment will be investments in data centers across the United States.
"As it turned out, Trump apparently referred to the single plant built by Foxconn in Wisconsin, which started construction last year. The plant will make large LCD panels, nothing for Apple," reported 9to5mac.com.
