Donald Trump boasted that he is responsible for Apple building a "very powerful and important plant" in Austin, Texas, which is odd considering the plant was completed in 2013 and has been functioning ever since. What Apple *did* just complete building a new campus in Austin that will be hiring highly technical, high paying white-collar design and engineering positions. It is not a plant, as Donald has proclaimed.

Quote | The plant Donald took credit for "building" has been around since 2013.

“We’re seeing the beginning of a very powerful and important plant,” Trump said at the factory. “Anybody that followed my campaign, I would always talk about Apple, that I want to see Apple building plants in the United States. And that’s what’s happening.”
