IMO Obama should have been impeached for conflict of interest

Okay, so this guy stuffed his pockets with millions of corporate bribes. In exchange, he allowed corporations to close factories in the US, lay off American workers, move production to Mexico and China to use cheap foreign labor, sell American goods made in Mexico and China in America at prices as if these goods were made in America at American salaries.

An Apple iPhone built in America costs the same as an Apple iPhone built in China. The price isn't lowered when it is sold in the US even though it was made with cheap foreign labor.

So much for hope and change.

Where are your sources for accusations?

Because the US economy was severely damaged under Obama while Obama made hundreds of millions using his office.

Placing the blame for all those things on Obama is at best naive. All of that was well under way decades ago as the reigning economic philosophy of capitalism strove to remain the dominant form of exchange. It is capitalists that drive all of the down grades in production that you mention, not Obama. If anything he is guilty of allowing capitalism to continue it's pursuit of profit regardless of who it hurts. Yes, Obama, that hated 'socialist commie', letting capitalism thrive.

True, but Obama promised hope and change. He didn't deliver because he stuffed his pockets with bribes and got filthy rich. That's conflict of interest. When he gets rich at the expense of America. That's where the conflict is.

The response is that Apple iPhones are only as cheap as they are because they are made in China.

I guess if they are serious about investigating an assembly operation in the US, we'll see how true that is.

Conflict of interest. Where does the conflict come from? The conflict happens if a politician uses his office to benefit himself at the expense of the country. That's where the conflict comes from.

If Trump gets rich while the country also gets prosperous, then there is no conflict of interest.

Wrong,

Race relations changed.

The national debt changed.

The middle East really changed.

Our full time workers changed.

NAFTA changed-oops didn't change.

Health care changed.

And we all hope it changes back.

Incorrect. An American made Ford costs 30000 dollars. A Mexican made Ford also costs 30000 dollars. Even though the cost of production was only 10%, the price when sold in the US is not lowered.

An American made iPhone costs the same as a Chinese made iPhone in the US, 600 dollars.

Race relations improved? Obama denounced his white side. He only checks black on the census. That's racism.

Barack Obama criticized Hillary Clinton for not being able to "Walk While Chewing Gum". He prided himself on being able to affect a lot of things simultaneously. Looks like he went to the extreme doesn't it.

That's patently false. Iphones were never made in the USA. The Iphone is made in several countries. Germany being the one that collects the most on the sale.

I understand what you're trying to do, but Obama didn't sign any free trade agreements. The stock market under the Obama admin has closed at record highs, the unemployment rate is the lowest it's been in a long long time.

Not that I like Obama, but if you'd like to make incredible claims, you are going to need extra ordinary proof.

Just for your information:

These are the list of places an Iphone is made
. Several components are made in the USA, but that's it.

Thanks for the A2A. The definitive answer is “all over the place.”

Apple designs the iPhone, but the components that, when put together, make something called an iPhone are manufactured all over the world. It is assembled mostly in China.

But here is a list of where its components are made:

Accelerometer: Bosch in Germany. Invensense in the United States.
Audio Chipsets and Codec: Cirrus Logic in the United States (outsourced for manufacturing).
Baseband processor: Qualcomm in the United States (outsourced for manufacturing).
Batteries: Samsung in South Korea. Huizhou Desay Battery in China.
Cameras: Sony in Japan. OmniVision in the United States produces the front-facing FaceTime camera chip but subcontracts TMSC (in Taiwan) for manufacturing.
Chipsets and Processors: Samsung in South Korea and TSMC in Taiwan. Alongside their partner GlobalFoundries in the United States.
Controller Chips: PMC Sierra and Broadcom Corp in the United States (outsourced for manufacturing).
Display: Japan Display and Sharp in Japan. LG Display in South Korea.
DRAM: TSMC in Taiwan. SK Hynix in South Korea.
eCompass: Alps Electric in Japan.
Fingerprint sensor authentication: Authentec makes it in China but outsources it to Taiwan for manufacturing.
Flash memory: Toshiba in Japan and Samsung in South Korea.
Gyroscope: STMicroelectronics in France and Italy.
Inductor coils (audio): TDK in Japan.
Main Chassis Assembly: Foxconn and Pegatron in China.
Mixed-signal chips (such as NFC): NXP in Netherlands.
Plastic Constructions (for the iPhone 5c): Hi-P and Green Point in Singapore.
Radio Frequency Modules: Win Semiconductors (module manufacturers Avago and RF Micro Devices) in Taiwan. Avago technologies and TriQuint Semiconductor in the United States. Qualcomm in the United States for LTE connectivity.
Screen and Glass (for the display): Corning (Gorilla Glass) in the United States. GT Advanced Technologies produces the sapphire crystals in the screens.
Semiconductors: Texas Instruments, Fairchild and Maxim Integrated in the United States.
Touch ID sensor: TSMC and Xintec in Taiwan.
Touchscreen Controller: Broadcom in the United States (outsourced for manufacturing).
Transmitter and Amplification Modules: Skyworks and Qorvo in the United States (outsourced for manufacturing).

If iPhones are made in America, they would sell in America at the same price as when they are made in China. This is true because a Mexican made Ford F150 sells in America at the same price as an American made Ford F-150.
