Apple stock fell more than 2% on Thursday following remarks from President Trump about imposing additional tariffs on goods imported from China.

Starting September 1, Trump said an additional 10% tariff will be placed on the remaining $300 billion worth of goods and products set to be imported from China into the U.S. The additional tariffs doesn't include the $200 billion already tariffed at 25%.

So far, Apple's most important products have escaped the effects of the tariffs. However, Trump's newest announcement could reach Apple's most popular products, including the iPhone, iPad, Mac, AirPods, and Apple TV.

President Trump recently called out Apple about making Mac Pro parts in the U.S., rather than relying on China. "Apple will not be given tariff waiver, or relief, for Mac Pro parts that are made in China," Trump said.

In response, Apple CEO Tim Cook said the company wants to make the Mac Pro in the U.S. and is making investments to make that happen.
