Donald Trump Is Still Using His Unsecured Android Phone
Donald Trump, the 45th president of the United States of America, is a controversial figure who tends not to comply with the rules imposed for the post he now occupies.
To meet the safety rules imposed by the White House protocol, the services provided him a new smartphone with high standards of safety and security, forcing the president to leave his Android. But the truth is that, once again, he did not follow the rules and kept his smartphone “unsafe.”
Smartphone switching, for a much safer one, is one of the many steps the protocol requires for all new White House occupants. The protection of the president is a constant, not only at the physical level but also in the digital world and communications.
As reported on the day of his inauguration, Donald Trump received a new smartphone with much higher safety standards, speculating that this would be either a BlackBerry or an iPhone. But according to information gathered by the newspaper New York Times, this will not have abandoned his trusty Android phone and have continued to use it.
“Mr. Trump has the television — and his old, unsecured Android phone, to the protests of some of his aides — to keep him company”.
In addition to keeping his smartphone up and running, Trump still actively uses it to share his personal and critical opinions on his favorite social network, Twitter.
Also according to the NYTimes, one of Donald Trump’s latest tweets will have been made from his Android smartphone, in his few spare times he still manages to have.
If Chicago doesn't fix the horrible "carnage" going on, 228 shootings in 2017 with 42 killings (up 24% from 2016), I will send in the Feds!

This behavior of Donald Trump blends seamlessly with his irreverent personality and runs against the rules defined by his team, who just wants to keep him safe and away from the many dangers to which he will be exposed.
It is not known when it will be possible for Donald Trump to keep his Android smartphone up and running, but he will probably end up giving in to security rules that are not his alone.
