Apple CEO Tim Cook said Apple is putting $1 billion into a fund aimed at bringing advanced manufacturing jobs to the United States.
Speaking on CNBC’s Mad Money on Wednesday, Cook boasted that Apple has already created two million jobs in America and said the company has plans to hire “thousands more employees in the future.”
