This is a no-brainer.
Donald Trump is a serious threat to Apple’s slaves in China. Apple, if you’re serious about being ‘good citizens’ you’d fix the conditions you force workers over there to endure and pay them a competitive wage the same as an American would make. You’re exploitive, and it’s sick. Don’t be a bunch of globalist hypocrites.
Hey, Apple, boycotting Trump and the RNC is so petulant. Man, that is some political courage right there. Tim Cook, you want to impress me? STOP SELLING YOUR PRODUCTS IN COUNTRIES THAT OUTLAW AND KILL HOMOSEXUALS! Put your money where your mouth is and I will continue to pay $700 happily for a new phone every six months.

Apple has told Republican leaders it will not provide funding or other support for the party’s 2016 presidential convention, as it’s done in the past, citing Donald Trump’s controversial comments about women, immigrants, and minorities.
Unlike Facebook, Google and Microsoft, which have all said they will provide some support to the GOP event in Cleveland next month, Apple decided against donating technology or cash to the effort, according to two sources familiar with the iPhone maker’s plans.
Apple’s political stand against Trump, communicated privately to Republicans, is a sign of the widening schism between Silicon Valley and the GOP’s bombastic presumptive nominee. Trump has trained his rhetorical fire on the entire tech industry, but he’s singled out Apple for particular criticism — calling for a boycott of the company’s products, and slamming CEO Tim Cook, over Apple’s stance on encryption.
While Apple isn’t the most active political player in the nation’s capital, the tech giant previously has backed both parties’ conventions. It provided about $140,000 in MacBooks and other tech tools to the Democratic and Republican events in 2008, according to campaign finance records. Apple sat out the nominating conventions in 2012, the year Democrats opted against accepting corporate contributions.
Apple’s organization shouldn’t even be political. Their company isn’t doing as well as it uses to. Too big and what bullies. They are one of the worst on moving out of the country, but I could understand why however they have made their money on the backs of the Chinese worker aided and abetted by people buying their products in the US. I guess it’s time to buy a new brand. I’ve been using an Apple MacBook for a while now, but if they aren’t fair to both parties, then I will never buy from them again. They charge too much anyway.
