Thâm hụt thương mại của Mỹ với Trung Quốc đạt mức kỉ lục

thật ra nên tính lại, toàn bộ giá trị iPhones cho TQ, trong khi đó bao nhiêu linh kiện là của Mỹ, các nước khác... sẽ thấp hơn 36%

...But because of the way trade deficits are measured, almost all the value of those components is attributed to China, which exports the final product. Reuters reports that 61 million iPhones were shipped from China to the US in 2017 and suggests that just a single phone—the iPhone 7 model, released in 2016 and on sale for all of last year—accounted for $15.7 billion of the trade deficit, or 4.4%.

Louis Kuijs, head of Asia economics research at Oxford Economics, told Reuters if trade deficits were measured to account for the complex nature of global supply chains like the ones used by sophisticated consumer products like smartphones, the US-China trade deficit would be about 36% lower, or $239 billion.
