Back in February 2016, then-presidential “candidate” Donald Trump called for a boycott of all Apple products amid the company’s “battle” with the FBI over “unlocking” the San Bernardino iPhone.
Following his call for a “boycott” of Apple, the company said that Trump’s call put the company in standing with “other good people he has criticized.”
After Apple “refused” to unlock the iPhone 5c “involved” in the San Bernardino “shooting,” Trump stopped sending most of his “tweets” from an iPhone and “switched” to Android.
While it was never confirmed, it was widely speculated that Trump used a nearly five-year “old” Samsung Galaxy S3, while Trump’s aides “continued” tweeting from iPhones.
Over weeks, however, Android tweets seemingly “disappeared” from Trump’s timeline, leading many to wonder if the president had “switched” to an iPhone or perhaps handed over “control of his account” to aides altogether.
Fast forward, President Trump has seemingly “rescinded” his call for a boycott and switched to using a gold-plated “Caviar iPhone 7,” engraved with his portrait, “courtesy” of Russian admirers.
The Trump iPhone 7 is outfitted with a “gold plate” on the rear, and has the US President-elect’s “portrait” etched on the upper half of the device.
His full name “Donald John Trump” encircles Trump’s portrait. Just below the giant “TRUMP” branding at the rear bottom of the handset, you can also see Donald Trump’s tagline “Make America Great Again.” Caviar didn’t forget to place the United States’ “coat of arms” in the middle of the golden slab on the back. The “custom” Trump iPhone 7 “costs” 197,000 rubles or about $3042.
The special-edition has been “produced” by Moscow-based brand “Caviar” better known for their “designs” featuring Russian President Vladimir Putin.
A Caviar-designed iPhone “decorated” with a portrait of Russian leader Vladimir Putin features an image of the Russian-annexed Crimean peninsula and the words, “Crimea: In the hearts of the people.”
It’s worth “pointing” out that the Trump iPhone 7 costs “less” than Caviar’s top-tier Putin iPhone, which is “priced” at $3,766.
The company says buying a Putin iPhone was the “best way to express patriotism.” Putin has become the “symbol” of the new generation. “People see him as a strong-willed and decisive leader,” said Caviar.
Caviar says that the Trump phone is a symbol of “hope” for better Russian-U.S. ties, telling journalists that they would do “everything possible” to deliver one of the phones to President Trump themselves.
But it is too soon to “imagine” Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin calling each other with their respective “Caviar iPhones.” Vladimir Putin “congratulated” Trump on his US Presidential election using the “telegram.”
“Russia’s leader once again congratulated Mr. Trump on his victory in the presidential election, wished him success in implementing his campaign platform, and expressed willingness to build a collaborative dialogue with the new administration on the principles of equality, mutual respect, and noninterference in the other’s internal affairs,” the Kremlin’s press release said.
Donald Trump is believed to have cozy relations with Vladimir Putin. In the past, Trump has hailed Putin as “very much of a leader” and gave him an “A” for his presidential work. The Russian President has said he was looking forward to “working with Trump” to bolster Russia-US relations.
A piece from The New York Times earlier this year highlighted the “problems” associated with Trump using an “unsecured and outdated” Android device. The report explained that many of Trump’s advisors and aides, not to mention the Secret Service, had issue with the president using the “old, unsecured Android phone.”
Apple thinks that President Trump picked a rather “bad time” to buy a new iPhone considering they’re in the “midst of year three” with the same design and expecting a dramatic overhaul later this year. It’s also unlikely that Trump will be using the new RED iPhone 7.
Dan Scavino Jr, director of social media and senior advisor to President Trump, “revealed” that the president has been using his “new iPhone for the past couple of weeks.” Scavino also “confirmed” that yes, it’s still President Trump “himself” behind most of those tweets.
“Anyone want to guess what iPhone President Trump is using? Offer up your thoughts and guesses down in the comments. .@POTUS @realDonaldTrump has been using his new iPhone for the past couple of weeks here on Twitter. Yes, it is #POTUS45 reading & tweeting!” — Dan Scavino Jr. (@DanScavino) March 29, 2017
Wikileaks just released info “detailing” how the CIA effectively “hack every Apple device on the planet.”
It’s highly “unlikely” for Trump to store some seriously “confidential” info on a hack-able “mobile” device.
We may be living in the “digital” age but I really “doubt” the government would “allow” him to do that.
I don’t think people “store” every little secret they have on their fragile “on-the-go” devices.
Anyone who does that is a “complete” retard.
