(Reuters) US President Trump tweeted on Saturday that Apple Inc should make products inside the United States if it wants to avoid tariffs on Chinese imports.

The company told trade officials in a letter on Friday that the proposed tariffs would affect prices for a "wide range" of Apple products, including its Watch, but it did not mention the iPhone.

Trump, speaking on Friday aboard Air Force One, said the administration had tariffs planned for an additional $267 billion worth of Chinese goods.

Trump tweeted that "Apple prices may increase because of the massive Tariffs we may be imposing on China - but there is an easy solution where there would be ZERO tax, and indeed a tax incentive. Make your products in the United States instead of China. Start building new plants now."

Apple declined to comment.

The technology sector is among the biggest potential losers as tariffs would make imported computer parts more expensive. Apple’s AirPods headphones, some of its Beats headphones and its new HomePod smart speaker would also face levies.

"The burden of the proposed tariffs will fall much more heavily on the United States than on China," Apple said in its letter.

It want matter where apple will produce their iPhone...

  What will matter is that Chinese people will stop buying them and settle for a Xiaomi, Oppo, Vivo, Huawei or OnePlus.
   China's Huawei Technologies, which overtook Apple as the world's second-largest smartphone vendor in the June quarter, forecast global smartphone shipments exceeding 200 million this year.
   Company executives said at a briefing on Friday that Huawei shipped more than 95 million smartphones in the first six months, adding it was possible it could become the world's No.1 player in the fourth quarter of next year.
    Huawei overtook Apple for the first time in smartphone shipments in the second quarter of the year, according to data from industry trackers IHS Markit and Strategy Analytics...

Rump, what a brilliant business mind, impose tariffs and then build plants.

China's list of 333 U.S. product categories hit with duties includes coal, copper scrap, fuel, steel products, buses and medical equipment. Some business groups have warned about the impact of escalating tariffs.
America CompTIA, a technology trade group, called the new U.S. tariffs on tech products "irresponsible and misguided."
"These tariffs will not only severely undercut the U.S.'s global competitiveness and leadership in cutting-edge technologies, but also threatens America's national security infrastructure," Elizabeth Hyman, the group's executive vice president for public advocacy, said in a statement.
