Donald Trump is using an iPhone now

Does President Trump prefer iPhone or Android? He has his personal Twitter account, as well as the official POTUS account.

Although Trump used an iPhone to make both of his Wednesday morning tweets - one that included yet another rant against the New York Times - an Android smartphone was used as recently as Saturday on the @realDonaldTrump account, hinting that he's not tied to a single device. "Yes, it is #POTUS45 reading & tweeting!"

President Donald Trump now uses an iPhone to broadcast his famous early-morning tweets, according to the White House. He has been criticized for using an older, unsecured Android phone even after his inauguration, despite the report that he had ditched the phone. Considered obsolete by its manufacturer, the Trump Galaxy S3 was not an example of security.

That would mean that foreign agents could be listening on his private conversations, monitoring him as he moves around the country, and potentially seeing the world through the eyes of his smartphone camera. I don't exactly see this happening for sure, but it could always happen. While no mobile device is flawless in terms of security, Android is know for being particularly bad depending on the phone and its manufacturer.

White House social media director Dan Scavino Jr. broke the news tonight on the new administration's favorite media outlet: Twitter. Scavino also confirmed that yes, it's still President Trump himself behind most of those tweets.

At the time of Trump's boycott call, CNBC tweeted: "Sr".

Last night, we finally got an answer of sorts: Donald Trump is, in fact, tweeting from an iPhone. 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!

Interestingly, that very issue could be one reason the government has decided that the iPhone is secure enough for the President.

Android-marked tweets, believed to be direct from Trump, tended to be angrier and use all caps liberally. "With the voice of Hannity for Siri".

Qwwera: "An iPhone in Rose Orange".

Soli: "1) Obama had a hardened Blackberry".
