    Yesterday, Apple announced their plans to repatriate a huge chunk of its cash overseas to infuse more than $350 billion into the U.S. economy over the next five years, and now Apple CEO Tim Cook is speaking out about what led him to this decision.

    While being interviewed on ABC News’ “World News Tonight with David Muir,” Cook discussed the details of Apple’s upcoming investment, which will incur a foreign tax bill of $38 billion.

    Cook also gave massive credit to the TRUMP tax plan for giving the company the ability to make this massive move.

    “Let me be clear, there are large parts of this that are a result of the tax reform,” Cook said.

    Jarvis responded by saying that President Trump’s tax bill is a “huge windfall” for Apple, a statement that Cook reluctantly agreed with.

    “There are two parts of tax bill, there’s a corporate piece and an individual piece,” Cook explained. “I do believe the corporate tax side will result in job creation and a faster growing economy.”

    Earlier in the day, Trump tweeted the following in response to Apple’s huge move:

    I promised that my policies would allow companies like Apple to bring massive amounts of money back to the United States. Great to see Apple follow through as a result of TAX CUTS. Huge win for American workers and the USA! https://t.co/OwXVUyLOb1

    Just this morning, Trump was asked about this move by the press pool and here’s what he had to say:

    President Trump promised more jobs for the American people, and that is EXACTLY what’s happening! Trump’s pro-growth mentality is causing major windfalls for American business – and we’re just getting started.
