Ford VS Trump: Automaker Refuses To Change Focus Hatch China Production Plans

Apple, in pushing back on the tariff proposal, said it bought more than $50 billion worth of components from US-based suppliers past year and that it's the largest U.S. corporate tax payer.

Ford will not be moving production of a hatchback to the United States from China - despite Donald Trump's claim on Sunday that his taxes on Chinese imports mean the Focus Active can be built in America.

Last week, Ford revealed that it was dropping plans to import the Focus Active from China due to Trump's tariffs on Chinese goods.

Olivia Newton-John confirms she's battling cancer again
The courageous beauty says she doesn't spend any time feeling sorry for herself, and is aware of how lucky she has been in life. The legendary singer has been an advocate for breast cancer screenings in Australia since beating cancer in 1992.

The Chinese plant isn't the only location where Ford will build the fourth-generation Focus so the automaker has alternative options for sourcing the Focus Active variant for the USA market, should the vehicle still be planned for our market.

President Donald Trump offered some business advice to Ford Motor on Sunday: because of the administration's high tariffs on auto imports from China, Ford can start making its Focus Active in the United States. It's a recurring threat Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook has heard from the White House, but a particular distraction in the days leading up to news of three new iPhones.

Mr. Trump presumably learned about Ford's decision to cancel the Focus Active from a TV news program and inferred the announcement meant that Ford would build the CUV in America.

Apple may not upgrade iPhone X to 2018 iPhone
All eyes will be on the iPhone Xs Plus , which will be the biggest iPhone ever from the company with its 6.5-inches OLED display. Kuo also mentioned battery size for the 6.5-inch iPhone Xs Plus which would be a 2 cell one, between 3000 to 3400 mAh in size .

"Without the tariffs, the business case was pretty solid for that model in the USA market", Kim said.

Trump's threatened tariffs cover a total of $517 billion in Chinese goods, which would exceed last year's goods imports of $505 billion from China.

Trump previously has claimed that Apple is building new plants in the United States, but the iPhone maker has not announced any such plans.

Long-range missiles missing from North Korea anniversary parade
Despite speculation that Chinese President Xi Jinping would attend, Beijing instead sent its third-highest party official. At such events in North Korea performers normally play in front of a giant screen displaying the country's successes.

The technology sector is one of the biggest potential losers in the $200 billion tariff list proposed by Washington on Chinese imports because the tariffs would make imported computer parts more expensive. That would extend tariff increases to almost all of China's exports to the United States.
