Trump calls for boycott of Apple


That awkward moment when the liberal CEO of Apple holds a more Conservative view than the supposedly ‘Conservative’ Republican front-runner…

Apple recently put a letter to their customers online. Here is a shortened version of what the letter said:

“The United States government has demanded that Apple take an unprecedented step which threatens the security of our customers. We oppose this order, which has implications far beyond the legal case at hand…. Specifically, the FBI wants us to make a new version of the iPhone operating system, circumventing several important security features, and install it on an iPhone recovered during the investigation. In the wrong hands, this software — which does not exist today — would have the potential to unlock any iPhone in someone’s physical possession…The implications of the government’s demands are chilling….Opposing this order is not something we take lightly. We feel we must speak up in the face of what we see as an overreach by the U.S. government…. We are challenging the FBI’s demands with the deepest respect for American democracy and a love of our country. We believe it would be in the best interest of everyone to step back and consider the implications….While we believe the FBI’s intentions are good, it would be wrong for the government to force us to build a backdoor into our products. And ultimately, we fear that this demand would undermine the very freedoms and liberty our government is meant to protect.”

Many would say that Tim Cook’s stance on this is a Conservative one – keep the government out of the private affair of citizens and don’t provide with a back door into every single iphone users phone, which would allow them to get the private information from any phone at any time. The general response from Conservatives has been “I don’t often agree with Tim Cook, but in this instance, he is right.”

NOT TRUMP. Trump disagree with Cook, thinks that Apple should develop the software that would allow the government to tap into any iphone it wants, and even went so far as to say the following:

“Here’s the thing, first of all the phone is not even owned by the young thug that killed all these people. The phone is owned by the government. We don’t even have to go that far. But Tim cook is looking to do a big number, probably to show how liberal he is.”

The phone is owned by the Government? WATCH:
