Trump uses an Android phone to insult Hillary, switches to iOS to cheer on the U.S. Olympic squad?
A report published today points out something very interesting about the tweets disseminated by Republican presidential nominee Donald J. Trump. When he posts a tweet that is insulting or bullying, it comes from an Android phone. When he sends out a tweet that is praising and positive, it comes from an iPhone. This was discovered by visual effects artist Todd Vaziri, who sent out a tweet discussing his analysis. We will get to his thoughts in a second.

Let's examine a couple of tweets sent out by the real estate developer. One, which was sent yesterday, said how he plans on attacking Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton for comments she made the other day. This was written on an Android phone using the Android Twitter app. Another tweet sent Friday wishing Good Luck to the U.S. Olympic team, was posted using an Apple iPhone.

Certainly there are some who will say that this proves that Trump has a split personality. But there is a less complex reason for this. Vaziri believes that the tweets containing acidic comments, insults and statements unbecoming someone holding the office of POTUS are indeed coming from Trump himself. The other tweets that come from an iPhone are possibly being tweeted by someone working on Trump's campaign team who is charged with smoothing out the candidate's statements. That certainly makes more sense than believing that Trump is schizophrenic and is jumping back and forth between two handsets.

Trump has been complaining about Apple building its phones and other products overseas. He has said that if he wins the presidency, he will force Apple to build its devices in the U.S. Earlier this year, Trump also said that U.S. consumers should boycott Apple after the company refused to unlock the Apple iPhone 5c belonging to deceased terrorist Syed Farook.

Trump stated back in February that he no longer uses his iPhone. Which means that Vaziri's analysis is probably right and that Trump's campaign employs a Twitter fixer on staff to smooth over the candidate's outrageous comments.

Let's hope he does. The world needs its Android and iOS devices from California.

If you use Android your a troll. And if you use IOS your a American.

God has never been one for saving others just ask: Jesus, Abraham, Rameses (the second if I remember correctly), Noah (technically because he had to do the work himself to NOT drown like every other living creature apparently), etc. So by your logic, America is screwed :D

I think it's you who's screwed hard, all these examples are dumb examples. Very sure you don't know the stories. Just making blind, I'll informed statements.

Jesus willingly sacrificed himself on the cross for us all. Abraham was led by God to father the nation of Israel, Rameses defied God by not letting Abraham go with his people. Noah spent decades building the ark. He was instructed by God to build it many years before the flood for that reason. We fail to live up to God's standard because we are imperfect people. It was through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ that we can be redeemed. So, yeah God is very much into saving people.

"Jesus willingly sacrificed himself on the cross for us all" "It was through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ that we can be redeemed." I hate to be the bearer of bad news for you, but science has proven Jesus didn't die on the cross. Have a look for yourself: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qbe3Bw72G-4 That said, I do believe God is saving people in miraculous ways.

There is numerous accounts of Christ's crucification from many non secular sources. A quick Google search would also prove that statement wrong. Never the less, I agree with you that God is saving people in miraculous ways. God bless!

So if he's going to force Apple to build their products over here, who's going to force Donald Trump to do the same as everything he has made is done outside the US. .... And I think it's a funny mental image to see Trump with a split personality. Though isn't having someone post comments for you fraudulent? Maybe not from a legal standpoint, but it's at the very least misrepresenting yourself.

Not everything. He builds his crappy, gaudy buildings here.

And, what about him isn't fraudulent?

30. engineer-1701d unregistered

Not really he speaks from the point of view of the business man of USA, meaning it's to expensive to make here since China drops it's value every other day. Think about it if Germany dropped it's dm to 1/2 everyone here would be driving mercs and BMW and audi for 10k to 15k

And yet, he wants Apple and others to bring the jobs back here. Claims he's going to get them back here. How's that going to happen?

It's a classic example of "Do as I say, not as I do", it's the height of hypocrisy.

I guess when you have that much money, you can buy and switch between both iOS and Android. Hell, even I have gone back-and-forth, and I make well under $100k annually. And how dare Donald Trump insult anyone, nor should Saint Hillary be insulted for anything.

It's the hypocrisy of someone as thin skinned as a four year old insulting others.

You could always vote for an independent if you believe in their platform. Your vote is your say!
