    Of course Tim opposes the ban. There goes his slave labor that he can pay peanuts.

    Apple in opposing ban should stop vetting all employees/hires seems like that's the point of Amicus Brief-be honest and fair & put into practice what you proclaim in court!

    I was going to give Tom Cook benefit of doubt, but he does not seem to have same dedication to innovation Jobs did! Seems like Apple has lost its way-

    care to share the proof about slave labor? I'm sure that Apple would like to know too.
    It is easy to make claims but sensible people really like to have the evidence so that they can make up their own minds.
    Or is this 'fake news'?

    A company can't *not* vet employees and hires, regardless of immigration laws.

    Are you saying that everything 'built' in China is done be slaves or do you mean something different?

    Individual said Tim Cook opposes ban because he doesn't want to be deprived of "slave labour."  The ban is for immigrants coming to the US, and has nothing to do with Apple's manufacturing - most of which happens outside of the US. As for Apple in the US, they don't use slave labour, nor can it be tongue-in-cheek even implied that Apple employees in the US are "slave labour." So even if some troll *can* say that Foxconn's workers are "slave labour", it still has nothing to do with the immigration ban. 

    The person whom I quoted isn't thinking straight.

    That doesn't even make sense for a multitude of reasons. Troll elsewhere.

    No, that doesn't actually make a lick of sense.

    Congratulations on hitting two troll tropes in one sentence. Next time be sure to include how long you've been using Apple gear.
