US President Obama Announces “Made in USA” Macs

Posted on February 13, 2013

President Barack Obama gave a shout-out to Apple during his latest State of the Union address, in reference to American companies adding more domestic jobs during his administration.

“After shedding jobs for more than 10 years, our manufacturers have added about 500,000 jobs over the past three,” the United States president declared. “This year, Apple will start making Macs in America again.”

It is no wonder why Apple’s CEO Tim Cook was sitting next to First Lady Michelle Obama during the whole speech. The president refers to Apple’s plan to have their Mac computers manufactured in United States.

“We’ve been working for years on doing more and more in the United States,” Cook said during an interview with NBC’s Brian Williams in 2012. “Next year, we will do one of our existing Mac lines in the United States.”

Apple has yet to clarify whether the iMac, Mac Mini, or any of the Mac laptops, would be getting the “Proudly Made in the U.S.A.” seal.
