President Trump will get a closeup take a look at Apple’s brand-new Mac Pro when he goes to the tech giant’s production center in Austin, Texas, on Wednesday, the White House validated Monday.

The journey, which was previously reported by CNBC and Reuters, will likely consist of a conference with Apple CEO Tim Cook. Apple didn’t reacted to an ask for remark.

Trump’s see marks another most likely win for Cook, who was among the very first tech CEOs to consult with the president soon after his 2016 election win and who has actually cultivated a favorable relationship because. 

Cook’s connection to Trump has actually assisted Apple in its efforts to decrease the effect from the president’s trade war. Cook had the ability to encourage the White House to downsize tariff strategies that might affect the iPhone, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Trump stated Apple must make the parts in the United States rather.
