WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump met with Apple CEO Tim Cook on Thursday to discuss trade, U.S. investment, immigration and privacy, a White House spokesman said.

The meeting comes as Trump deliberates whether to make good on his threat to hike tariffs on imports from China – a move that would affect costs for makers of consumer electronics like phones and tablets.
