Tim Cook Gifted Donald Trump 'First' 2019 Mac Pro
Apple CEO Tim Cook gifted former United States President Donald Trump with the first 2019 Mac Pro that came off of the assembly line in Austin, Texas, according to a financial disclosure report that was released today (via The Verge).
"Mac Pro Computer, the first created at the Flex Factory in Austin, Texas," reads the entry, which values the machine at $5,999, the base price for a Mac Pro. The Mac Pro would not have been the very first from the Flex Factory because the facility was also used for 2013 Mac Pro assembly.

Ahead of the launch of the new Mac Pro, Cook and Trump visited the Texas facility where some of the new models would be put together. At the time, Cook said that he was "proud" to build the new Mac Pro in the United States.
Apple's Austin, Texas facility continues to be used to assemble the Mac Pro, with the machines shipped across the United States.
