President Donald Trump and Apple CEO Tim Cook sat down recently to discuss how U.S. tariffs on Chinese goods affect the iPhone giant, putting it at a disadvantage relative to the Korean tech giant Samsung. That's according to remarks made by Trump himself on Sunday as he departed Morristown, New Jersey,  not far from his private golf club in Bedminster. The Republican president told reporters that he had a "very good meeting with Tim Cook, " adding that he has "a lot of respect" for the tech exec. "I thought he made a very compelling argument, " Trump told reporters at Morristown Municipal Airport in New Jersey before getting on Air Force One. "It’s tough for Apple to pay tariffs if it’s competing with a very good company that’s not, " Trump said. This comes after Trump last week said he would delay tariffs on Chinese goods for three months on certain tech goods and apparel. In July, Trump said that Apple wouldn't get exempted from tariffs if the company continues to produce goods in China.  iPhone 11:Here's what we know about new phones, expected release date Students are using tech to cheat on exams: How things are getting more advanced Now Trump is ....
