starting September 1st and December 15th.

The announcement will give some relief to manufacturers like Apple, which has said the costs of the tariffs will be passed on to consumers and has asked for an exemption for Mac Pro parts. Trump has pledged to deny that request, and he previously said consumers could stand a 10 percent hike on iPhone costs “very easily.”
