Illegitimate, popular vote losing, and manifestly unfit United States President Donald Trump said on Monday that at a recent dinner with Tim Cook -- what, you didn't think they hung out and shared meals? -- the Apple CEO made a “very compelling argument” that Apple may lose its competitive edge to Samsung because of Trump's tariffs on goods from China.

As Bloomberg News reported, Samsung won't be hit by those same tariffs when exporting goods to the U.S., because Samsung makes them in Korea.

Trump, who is an idiot, spoke today as if finally realizing that China tariffs will end up harming American technology companies more than they harm China.

“It’s tough for Apple to pay tariffs if it’s competing with a very good company that’s not,” Trump said.
