Donald Trump is calling for a boycott of Apple

Donald Trump, a presidential candidate, has decided to call a boycott on the world’s most admired company.

A few days ago, following Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, declaration to fight against a court order to help the FBI unlock an iPhone 5c, Donald Trump asked, “Who do they think they are?” He would then add that apple has “to open it up,” and that, apparently, they shouldn’t have a choice in the matter. The iPhone in question was used by one of the shooters in San Bernardino, and the FBI wants Apple’s help in accessing it.

So, apparently in light of realizing that Apple is really going to fight this, and that other companies are agreeing with the Cupertino-based company, Trump went for the most extreme option possible: calling for a boycott of Apple. Which is exactly what he’s done, according to Reuters.

And, yes, if you’re curious, Trump was using an iPhone –or whoever is in charge of his Twitter account was– when he made the statement to boycott Apple. Since then, the account switched to the web client, and, now, it’s using Android:
