Donald Trump seems to have had a little trouble taking his own advice this week. The presidential candidate and Republican front-runner told people they should boycott Apple over the company's ongoing fight with the Justice Department, then kept right on tweeting from his own iPhone.
As The Washington Post points out, Trump supporters went as far as accusing people of Photoshopping the image to make Trump look bad.
But, I assure you that as of this writing you can look yourself using Tweetdeck to see that Trump was using the Twitter app on an iPhone earlier this afternoon. And you can look at this video to see Trump calling for the boycott at a rally in South Carolina.
Only after he was busted for breaking his own boycott in a number of reports, Trump went back to Twitter again to say that he uses both an iPhone and a Samsung phone.
That tweet was sent using the Android app, as have the rest of his tweets since then.
Apple has been making headlines since publishing an open letter to its customers on Tuesday to explain that it would not be helping the FBI unlock an iPhone owned by Syed Rizwan Farook, one of the San Bernadino shooters.
"The FBI wants us to make a new version of the iPhone operating system, circumventing several important security features, and install it on an iPhone recovered during the investigation. In the wrong hands, this software—which does not exist today—would have the potential to unlock any iPhone in someone’s physical possession," wrote Apple's CEO Tim Cook.
