re: Could Apple play the 'Made in the USA' card, too?

That's true. But that is where they build the processors for Apple. I've heard in the past that Apple insisted that Samsung build a fab in the U.S. to make its processors. That doesn't make a lot of sense to me since the processor are shipped to Asia, where the products are assembled. Last week it came out that Apple bought 300 acres of land in Austin to expand its facility there. Apple plans to hire another 3,600 employees there. http://www.engadget.com/2012/07/18/apple-austin-texas-campus-plans/

But they are under the control of Samsung. The next generation of Apple processors are unlikely to be made in the U.S. unless Apple turns to Intel.

At least, Apple should make 50% of parts in USA. This will be great achievement for Apple.
