Trump again says Apple should change how it makes the iPhone

President Donald Trump said Friday he wasn't concerned about Apple's future and again encouraged CEO Tim Cook to move his supply chain to the United States. His comments came after the company warned investors this week that its earnings will be badly weakened by a sales slowdown brought on in part by Trump's trade war with China. Apple's (APPL) announcement rattled investors and global markets.

"Apple makes their product in China. I told Tim Cook, who's a friend of mine ... 'Make your products in the United States,'" Trump said. "China is the biggest beneficiary of Apple — not us ... My focus is the United States. I want to get those companies to come back," he added. "I want Apple to make their iPhones and all of the great things that they make in the United States."
