Trump calls for boycott of Apple until it agrees to cooperate with Dept of Justice

Donald Trump has called for a boycott of Apple - until the company helps to unlock the mobile phone of one of the San Bernardino killers.

The company has so far refused to break into the phone, because of privacy concerns for its users.

The US Department of Justice has also filed a motion to force Apply to comply.

The Republican presidential candidate says people should stop buying their products until they do: “Boycott Apple.

“Here is the thing, first of all the phone is not even owned by this young thug that killed all those people.

“The phone is owned by the Government, ok not even his phone, we don’t even need to go that far.”
