Apple's iPhone SE 2 will be the perfect phone for President Trump

Despite his reluctance to waive tariffs on certain components arriving from China, Donald Trump seems to be quite the Apple fan and an avid iPhone user. But pretty soon, his famous MAGA campaign could become old news thanks to a new one dubbed MIGA – Make the iPhone Great Again.

Taking to his preferred social media platform over the weekend, President Trump expressed in a Tweet his dislike of the “swipe” system featured on every new iPhone released after the iPhone X, which debuted in late 2017. The President says “the button on the iPhone was far better” than the current gesture-based navigation interface.

Donald Trump didn’t specify the iPhone he is rocking at the moment but it’s probably one of the new iPhone 11 Pro models that Apple released in September. Presumably, this has replaced an iPhone 8 or an older iPhone 7 model but, once again, the exact phone he was using before remains unconfirmed.

Fortunately for the President, he won’t have to wait long for Apple to bring back its iconic home button. The company is reportedly preparing a second-generation iPhone SE that combines the iPhone 8’s body with the iPhone 11’s internals. This should hit shelves by the end of March and will be positioned as the company’s cheapest new iPhone at just $399.

while I like having a physical button, the much bigger screen to body ratio is better in my opinion that having a physical home button. you can get used to gestures really quickly

I agree. Now Apple and Google should notice too.

Physical button? Thank You! Love the iPhone 8 and the SE, best of both worlds with a better processor? BRING IT. Great way to use old refurbished, renewed and once owned iPhone 8 parts in a new iPhone SE at a reasonable price? Should we expect No Service issues as we saw with the 7 line which Apple will replace or fix all 3 models (verified through due to the use of some Used Internal Parts? There is no reason to produce an entire new phone if it's 11 internals aren't the form factor of the 8.......... Recycle, reuse, save, profit and pass on to customers.
