The matter has potential national security implications. Most of those reports claim President Trump at the time was using an old Samsung Galaxy S3 for Twitter and other uses, and that the phone could be easier hacked into or taken over by cybercriminals.
A reply, it may be said, which seemed to be gently mocking Trump and possibly taking a public relations gamble on him not becoming president. While it was never confirmed, it was widely speculated that Trump used a almost five-year old Samsung Galaxy S3.
Earlier this month, the Android-marked tweets dried up for a while and more iPhone tweets appeared.
But on Saturday, a typical Trump tweet with the Android tag popped up, declaring that "ObamaCare will explode".
Trump has used the social media account to say what's on his mind - and torment his enemies.
Intelligence officials went to great lengths to provide former President Barack Obama with a secure BlackBerry that he could use to communicate with his advisers. While no mobile device is ideal in terms of security, Android is know for being particularly bad depending on the phone and its manufacturer. Shortly after his call for boycott in February 2016, Trump said he is using both an iPhone and a Samsung phone, but vowed to stop using the iPhone until Apple complies with FBI's request. I would think that Samsundg have the damn things spontaneously errupting in to a VERY hot ball of fire was good enough to toss the Samsung, but was the Federal Bureau of Investigation even concerned - NOT! "What I think you ought to do is boycott Apple until such time as they give that security number". A few of those messages have been labeled as coming from an Android phone, but as CNBC points out, those particular posts might not have been handled by Trump himself, or could have come from a different Android device.
