Apple's success in China is allegedly down to an agreement with the country's government to help develop its economy, with a report claiming CEO Tim Cook personally lobbied officials to get the best deal for the company.

Apple considers China to be a major market, with the iPhone maker expending considerable effort to make headway, both in generating custom and in its extensive supply chain operations. The success in China has been a turnaround years in the making, and it seems that a secret agreement may have greased the wheels.

A report on Tuesday claims that, during a period when Apple was dealing with a rash of regulatory activity in China, Tim Cook paid a visit to the country in 2016. During that visit, he signed an agreement with the Chinese government, according to The Information.

WOW. Not good news. China, doing some of the vilest acts upon the world and in their own country since Nazi Germany essentially bribing the 3 trillion dollar Apple monster.

I thought Tim Cooks was a decent guy and a humanitarian. Well, I guess that goes out the window!

Some good news is that the flawed country America has done a great deed in uniting in congress to punish China

U.S. House Passes Bill to Punish China Over Oppression of Uyghurs

For once, I'm proud to be an American, even with all our flaws, in the end, we can unite and do what's right.

Stupid move to make stuff in China. Their banks can and will keep all their money and the Chinese govt. gets all the industry made there. People don't understand the mentality of the village leaders in China. Its like the gangs taking over your business if you don't pay to play. People don't understand this but even in Hong Kong the Triads own some streets going to housing projects. Yes, you have to pay every month to get to your home.

China really owns all businesses foreign and domestic there. PERIOD.

Yup, and Google helped China engineer the system they use to monitor and accrue the social credit scoring their government uses to manage the population.

We are essentially in a soft wartime footing with respect to the double agents/spies in our midst, similar to what we experienced with the Nazi/Axis agents skulking about our country during WW2.

Let's get the FBI on the case, assuming they have capacity to multi-task with the huuuuge number of white supremacist entrapment investigations on their plates.

Basically the USA and China are now brother and sister . The same families own and control both countries and every other place on earth . These people are the evilest most vile scum on earth .

We both live under somewhat different rules for now but whatever China is doing is coming our way very very soon . You never let anyone take your freedom . We give it up just because the gov wants us to but we never get it back . Freedom is never given back . The Only way to get your freedom back is if you and the people who are sick of being enslaved revolt . Most of the time state power will just crush any opposition. Once the state (one world governemt) gets the power they will do absolutely everything to keep it which includes killing any of us at any time . We can still stop this from happening . We still have a little bit of free speech over here . Once it happens though it will be almost impossible to ever change it .

We need a new world constitution or something . We need to put the common people of the planet ahead of the central bankers , drug companies , arms industries ,giant corporations, politicians . These people are not good for our planet whatsoever. We don’t need them one iota . We need to get rid of the things that are destroying and ruining our beautiful planet . We meet to band together. You guys just keep educating people to what you know is the truth.

You think Tim Cook is or was a great guy ? He is enslaving us for cash .
