Two US Senators Raise Concerns Over Trump's Unsecured Samsung Device
Two U.S. Democratic Senators are showing concerns regarding the smartphone of present President Donald Trump. This comes after reports reveal that the business tycoon was in possession of an old Samsung Android device that was unsecured.
Committee Ranking Member, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), and member Senator, Tom Carper (D-Del.) penned a letter to Secretary of Defense, Jim Mattis, which was dated on Feb. 9. It was recently released and revealed that the senators provided a list of questions regarding the president's phone habits. It said that the pair had "serious security concerns related to President Trump's reported use of a personal, unofficial smartphone."
Senator Tom Carper's official Twitter account uploaded a copy of the letter on the social media platform for everyone to see. It also came with the status, "I look forward to hearing from @DeptofDefense about the protective measures being taken for President Trump's use of a personal smartphone". A written confirmation with a deadline set on March 9 was requested by the senators. They ask that Trump should get and use an encrypted Secret Service smartphone.
President Trump was just reported to have been using his smartphone device while in very public places to improve foreign policy. During a Saturday night dinner gathering, which took place at Mar-a-Lago, security questions were raised as Trump sat next to the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe while using the phone in a meeting. While reviewing documents about the missile launch on the outdoor patio, some of the national security team were photographed using cellphone flashlights to brighten the files.
According to CNN, the president "took the call on a mobile phone at his table, which was set squarely in the middle of the private club's dining area." Diners in the area were even taking photos and posting them on Facebook.
