This quote, despite having been retweeted more than 21,000 times, is fake:

It would be an insanely stupid thing for a CEO involved in a dispute with the U.S. government over tariffs and outsourcing to say, and the company confirms that he did not say it. The account that tweeted the quote was just launched weeks ago and has tweeted other fake stories as well.

The quote is fake. Do not retweet, pass along, chatter about, or otherwise distribute the fake quote!
