    No, the Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 adapter passes only Thunderbolt signals.

    The USB-C port of the MacBook can carry USB, DisplayPort, and HDMI signals and can be used to connect USB-C adapters that use those signals. The MacBook has no Thunderbolt controller to send Thunderbolt signals.
