    Really that's the best defense you have going for this wig piece? I'd bet Trump is way worse. He's calling for a boycott on an American company and he isn't even president. Imagine how much worse this traitor would be in Obama's position?
    Unlike Obamatons, who will defend their Messiah to the bitter end in the most hypocritical and ignorant ways, I don't have to defend Trump here in any way, because I have already written that he's completely wrong on this issue, and I've been saying the same thing for days now.

    The vast majority of posts in this thread sound very misinformed.

    Bozo

    What a piece of c**p this guy is.
    Obama's DOJ said this earlier today, accusing Apple of only caring about profits and their image.

    "Apple's current refusal to comply with the court's order, despite the technical feasibility of doing so, instead appears to be based on its concern for its business model and public brand marketing strategy," 

    Obama is a bozo and a piece of c**p. Trump is not suing Apple and filing motions against them, Obama is filing motions against Apple.
    Trump is shitting on Apple for votes, that the DOJ is pursuing Apple doesn't change that.
     At least OBAMA is not going for reelection so at least we can't give him that motive.

    Trump's not just wrong dear apologist, he's dangerous in his ignorance.

    The very fact that despite every POS crap trump that are proven wrong, you lick his boots and make excuses for him, makes people like you dangerous too.

    What a dumb ass! Can you still believe you will vote for this bozo for your next president?
    Yes I can believe it, because I find the others to be even worse. B)

    I dont disagree. I think that he's obviously ignorant about encryption tech and how it applies to this case. I don't think that any of the candidates are knowledgeable about tech.

    It's disgusting that a presidential candidate is vowing to support an overseas Korean counterfeit company over a great homegrown American company.
    Since when is Android Korean?
    Buddy, Android made 30B in revenues in 7 years for google for the US while Apple made 20 times that. Samsung is the only one making money substantially from Android

    Oh, right... they're all like him despite their vomiting his ignorance in the media. That's a false equivalence. Find another way to kiss his ass; try harder.

    I love how certain hypocritical liberals are down voting certain posts, while totally ignoring the facts, that it is the Obama DOJ that is currently going after Apple in the courts.

    Talk about a bunch of hypocritical, ignorant clowns. If Trump is a traitor, then Obama is 100 x worse.

    Except Trump is all talk right now. Obama has a PROVEN TRACK RECORD of actually carrying out dangerous actions that are harming real people.

    I said that he's wrong on this issue, so your claim that that equates to kissing his ass is false, ignorant and plain wrong. I call it like I see it, as I always do.

    And yes, the others are no better.

    There's Obama who had huge problems operating an iPhone on at least two occasions. And Obama's DOJ and FBI is leading the charge against Apple, not Trump.

    There's Hillary with her private servers in bathrooms, storing classified, top secret info, and then asking if servers should be wiped down with a cloth.

    Who has come out in favor of Apple in this case, among any of the candidates? Nobody has.

    Trump is incapable of acting on behalf of other people. He's a pathological narcissist, but less dangerous than his GOP opposition. If he's elected, then success requires keeping his interests in line with Joan/John Doe American citizen. The fact that he's in favor of Apple violating customer's privacy is all we need to know. He has tipped his hand. Fascist Open 1 iPhone = Precedent = All phones/devices no longer private. No privacy = No liberty (Give me Liberty or give me Death) This is likly the most pivotal event in human history. Hmmm? Do you want to be part of the Matrix? Or do you fancy being Neo..... Red pill or Blue? Wake up

    I can't imagine the other Republican candidates not jumping on this opportunity.  They don't even have to take sides.  All they have to do is point out is what kind of buffoon would call for a Boycott on a whim of the largest company in America.  Point out the case is complex and it's being worked out in the courts as it should.  Then come up with other examples of the type of buffoonery we could expect in the next 4 years.   And could someone please hack into his Samsung.

    Any American who thinks Trump should be President is also a clown. You churn out a lot of them in the US. 
    This isn't the first time you were disrespectful about americans. Dude, It's a Tech site.
    Oh really. Judging by most comments you wouldn't think so. It's so easy to be disrespectful about Americans. There are so many clowns to poke fun at. Tim Cook for President I say.

    What's this "Obama ordered it", "Obama's DOJ ordered it" cr**??? What are you people smoking? Do some of you honestly believe either the FBI or Judge Sheri Pym were acting on Obama's orders, or consulted with him on this? I don't understand how you can believe Rush Limbaugh on the one hand and still think Trump's an idiot. C'mon, at least be consistent.

    I'm a Democrat supporting Apple 100% on this. Obama didn't need to order anything in this specify instance; he signed off on limiting encryption;

    The meeting was convened at the White House.

    President Obama follows a long lineage of Presidents limiting privacy for "national security" reasons, but he will get full credit for this abomination.

    Since the only profits being made using Android are those belonging to Samsung and Google.

    There are nothing but horrible, dangerous and just plain lousy candidates this time around. At least we know this up front this time. It'll make the constitutional Armageddon that follows easier to understand.
