WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump has invested in some of the companies that he rails against on the campaign trail because they've outsourced jobs.

New federal filings released Wednesday show the presumptive Republican nominee reported holding investments in companies like Ford Motor Co., Apple Inc. and the parent company of the maker of Oreo cookies.

All are businesses that he's assailed for outsourcing or, in Apple's case, not agreeing to crack into iPhones for police or federal law enforcement in criminal cases. Trump also has invested in other companies that have outsourced jobs but escaped his public shaming.

The investments make up only a tiny fraction of Trump's reported net worth, and a comparison with his previous filings show that he has reduced his holdings in some of the companies he targets.
