I do not know if they are.  I read just this morning that Google is relocating its Pixel line to an old Nokia factory in Vietnam because increased manufacturing costs in China and the trade war.  Corning glass who makes the screens for Apple will no longer be getting its raw material from China but Vietnam.

Vietnam seems to be the country that benefits most from this trade war.

What is the "Pixel line"?

Did you know the Chinese Communist Party Plan involves conquering Vietnam?

What will Google do then? I bet they would be welcome in the Saudi Kingdom if the were willing to bow, kneel, and lick ass...

They should think about doing that rather than going to China... Shocked

Yes, I do, they are always having conflicts in the waters.  China wants to take over the whole of SEA, Taiwan probably Japan.

Pixel is Google's own brand of devices.  Smartphone, tablet, laptop, home assistant, accessories, etc.  Very big.

OK, so they'll be made (at least in part) in Vietnam, because the labor is cheaper there.

More news about the trade war:

The trade war, which was supposed to be "easily won", is still having bad effects on our economy.

Yes, Democrats just want to let the Chinese keep screwing us, don't you? You've mentioned that.  And hey, so what if they're stealing our intellectual property, you're a citizen of the world

Free trade is better than trade wars. Is that a Democratic position?
