Donald Trump was said to have abandoned his old Android phone for a new and secure device provided by the government. But this might be not true.
Donald Trump Is Reportedly Still Using His Unsecured Android Phone
According to the New York Times, President Trump is still using the Android phone he's always used to send his tweets, which is, unfortunately, unsecured.
He, who flew across the country on hundreds of times during the 2016 campaign but sleeps in his own bed, has now spent 5 straight days in new surroundings of the White House. His aides said privately that Trump seemed apprehensive about the move to his new home, but he has discovered there is a lot he likes.
“These are the most beautiful phones I’ve ever used in my life,” Trump said in a telephone interview Tuesday evening. “The world’s most secure system,” he added, laughing. “The words just explode in the air.” What he meant was that no one was listening in and recording his words.
The president sat at his desk which is the one used by the former Presidents such as Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Ronald Reagan and John F. Kennedy, among others — at the end of his fourth full day in office.
As reported by The Verge, Trump’s Android phone has been a point of controversy ever since he began receiving classified information. Another report that was published last week claimed Trump that he “traded in his Android phone for a secure, encrypted device approved by the Secret Service with a new number that few people possess,” but Trump has reportedly kept the Android phone to continue tweeting, and is even getting calls on it.
Donald Trump In White House
“They have a lot of board rooms,” Trump said pertaining to the White House, an apparent reference to the Cabinet Room and the Roosevelt Room.
The White House is the only property that President Donald Trump has slept in that is more famous than one of his own, and he seems in awe. Although he made his name building such an extravagant one, gilded properties, the new U.S. president has wondered to aides about the splendor of the White House and the lengths he must walk to retrieve something from a room to another room.
