Trump Drowned In Sea Of Mockery After Taking Credit For Opening Apple Factory That Opened In 2013

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump toured a Texas plant that makes high-end Apple computers. He chatted with Apple’s chief executive, Tim Cook, and accepted a plate with the words “Assembled in USA.” It was a pretty typical publicity event… until Trump decided to speak.

Trump walked in front of the news cameras and bizarrely took credit for the plant, suggesting it had opened that day. “For me, this is a very special day,” he said. Tim Cook stood next to him, stone-faced.

The plant actually opened during the Obama administration, in 2013.

After Trump departed the factory, he doubled down on his claim by tweeting, “Today I opened a major Apple Manufacturing plant in Texas that will bring high paying jobs back to America. Today Nancy Pelosi closed Congress because she doesn’t care about American Workers!”

This isn’t the first time Trump has taken erroneous credit for opening the facility. The Verge reported that Trump has repeatedly made the same claim at numerous rallies, telling supporters that his pressure caused Apple to open the facility in the U.S.

Trump’s claim immediately triggered an avalanche of mockery. Check some of the responses below:

Go ahead, let Trump know your response.
