Trump calls for boycott of Apple

Trump calls for boycott of Apple
GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump has somehow caught on among the electorate by saying outrageous things, and promoting a platform that is far more fluff than substance. With Apple refusing to abide by a court order to build a version of iOS that would unlock a terrorist's Apple iPhone 5c, Trump has called for his followers to boycott Apple.

The real estate tycoon says that he has already stopped using his iPhone. "I use both iPhone & Samsung. If Apple doesn’t give info to authorities on the terrorists I’ll only be using Samsung until they give info," he said. Apple's response indicates that the company is not worried about Trump. "Trump’s call for Apple boycott puts the company in standing with other good people he has criticized," said an Apple executive. Keep in mind that a number of well-heeled tech executives applauded Apple for its stance, including Mark Cuban, an outspoken billionaire in his own right.

Despite his call to boycott Apple, Trump's official campaign store inside the North Charleston Convention Center continues to ring up Trump shirts and other Trump branded merchandise with the use of ten Apple iPads. Can you say hypocrite boys and girls?

Check out the exact moment that Trump decided to boycott Apple by clicking on the video below.

Calls for boycott on Twitter, Twitter are supporting Apple/encryption If he was to boycott Apple, what would he use? Google, Microsoft and BlackBerry are supporting Apple/encryption

Sorry all I going to say about this is in this case Apple is wrong If I asked Apple to unlock my phone and I am the owner of the phone, it be 100% OK to do so Now in this case Apple is being asked to unlock the iPhone 5c by the owner of the phone, and it is right for Apple to do so in this case and trump is right to say so Now if the owner was not asking for the unlock I have a problem!!!!!!

According to Apple iOS 8 and above they can't get into.. If you brought your own iPhone in to get apple to unlock.. They wouldn't be able to help you. The problem is 24 hours after the FBI took that IPhone 5c, the Apple ID changed.. Meaning someone was able to get in there and change the settings.. The FBI has so far flatly refused 4 alternative ways Apple has said the FBI could get the information, they are looking for.. What they are wanting.. Is a back door, a master key that would put every iOS device in risk of being hacked by anyone. Back doors are so easy to get into.

But.... But..... Google is supporting Apple for this, which mean indirectly it's affect Samsung too!(Not too sure for this.... But still....) And I believe BlackBerry would do the same thing, so now all it's left is Microsoft, would Trump used a Lumia Phone? I don't think so.

What's wrong with him thinking Apple rocks? Maybe he enjoys his iPhone as much as others enjoy their Android devices.

Don't care for Apple but I'm behind them on this one. Yes, Trump is a racist POS. I guess that's being redundant, once you're a racist you're automatically a POS.

Oh no, we wouldn't want trump to use ONLY Samsung. Poor Apple, bet they're crying in agony because the mighty trump won't use their smartphones!

Trump tower hires American born workers and create millions of job to lift American up. What about Apple?

Trump makes all his products in China, and employ illegals in constructing his buildings. He's no better.

So you're saying Apple doesn't hire workers.
