SMM News: on the morning of the 5th, CBS News published a speech about China by CEO Tim Cook, an American Apple company, in an interview with the media.

In this interview, the CBS reporter asked Cook two questions about China, one is the impact of the current economic and trade frictions between China and the United States on Apple; The other is whether he is worried that the Chinese government will kill Apple when the US government blocks Huawei, a Chinese company.

In response to the question "how much impact the current economic and trade frictions between China and the United States have on Apple," Cook's answer is:

"at present, the Chinese have not targeted Apple at all, and to be honest, my expectation is that this will not happen."

In the face of the reporter's follow-up question, "if the iPhone is subject to a 25% tariff, will it hurt sales?" Cook further replied:

"of course there will be. I hope this doesn't happen. I don't expect that to happen. I know people think iPhones are made in China. The iPhone was assembled in China. In fact, iPhones are made in many places. So if tariffs are imposed on iPhones, it will hurt all these countries, but it is this country (the United States) that will suffer the most.

Cook's response has also attracted a lot of attention on Twitter, an overseas social networking site. Some US analysts say Cook believes that "raising tariffs on Apple will do the most harm to the United States." it is worth paying attention to the remarks that Cook believes that "raising tariffs on Apple will do the most harm to the United States."

As for the equally high-profile question of whether Apple will be the target of China's revenge on Huawei by the United States, Cook's answer is:

"our company has been in China for a long time, so I believe there is a very good mutual respect between us and the Chinese side. So my expectation is that this is not going to happen. But I'm not promising that it won't happen. I just don't expect it to happen. "

In Geng Zhige's view, Cook's answer, and his previous answer that "China is not targeting Apple at all," not only clarified the remarks that "China is bound to go after Apple," which has been hyped by the US media. It also confirms from one side the restraint and rationality that China has maintained in the face of "bullying" in the United States, and has not carried out retaliatory attacks on US enterprises legally operating in China, as the US media had hoped.

In contrast, the U. S. government's brutal crackdown on companies such as Huawei in China is even more gaffy and narrow.

Key Words:  Apple  the United States  Cook  tariffs
