Presidential candidate Donald Trump is calling on his supporters to boycott Apple until it agrees to help the FBI unlock an iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino shooters.
“What I think you ought to do is boycott Apple until such time they give that security number,” Trump said at a rally in South Carolina on Friday.
“I just thought of it,” the GOP frontrunner added. “Boycott Apple.”
Apple this week defied a court order to assist authorities in bypassing security features on a phone belonging to one of the attackers in the San Bernardino, Calif., assault that left 14 people dead.
The company argued such assistance would amount to creating a “back door” into all iPhones that could be exploited by hackers and foreign spies.
