Apple and many other international brands tend to also be stocks held by many funds used by 401k's so you'd be hurting the folks you're trying to help
Oh what a tangled web we weave.........
You need not even go high tech to see how govt intrusion has had a negative effect on the economy and forced off-shoring
Let's consider the lightbulb. For years Sylvania and GE were humming along making the gold ole reliable 60 watt bulb
Along came Al Gore and his fictional movie. Many saw manmade global warming as a vehicle to punish the avg person and amass wealth among those with Democrat connections.
So, the govt embraced the "Gore film" as being factual and mandated the sunset of incandescent bulbs and forced people into buying gore-bulbs
the gore-bulbs were expensive so in order for the common person to be able to afford them the production had to be moved
So, fiction was used to put forth an agenda which in turn hurt the little guy who went to work each day making light bulbs.
With respect to buying American, close the door the horse has left the barn. Chip foundries could not meet the regulations of the govt so thousands of jobs from TI, Intel and others all went overseas.
But look at it this way, the next time you meet an older person bagging your Big Mac at least give them something to be happy about and let them know that Democrat policies saved the spotted turd flicker from extinction and they should find solace in the sacrifice of their job and livelihood.
Such a shame that Mr. Minority is impeding the small business owners around his Trump Towers - their business is down 20%
Oh that's right, I forgot - he doesn't really care about American jobs.
