الشركة تبرر رفضها بهواجس تسويقية يفرضها خرق الخصوصية وواشنطن تضغط على "آبل" لفك شيفرة هاتف مشتبه فيه و ترفض أمرًا قضائيًا بمساعدة المحققين على اختراق هاتف نقا وترامب يهدد آبل بمقاطعتها
تقدمت وزارة العدل الأميركية باستئناف جديد أمام القضاء في مسعى إلى حمل مجموعة "آبل" على فك شيفرة هاتف "آيفون" كان يملكه أحد منفذي اعتداء سان برناردينو، الذي أوقع 14 قتيلًا قبل شهرين في كاليفورنيا.
 
واشنطن: تريد السلطات الحصول على امر قضائي يرغم "آبل" على مساعدة مكتب التحقيقات الفدرالي "اف بي آي"، الذي لا يزال عاجزا عن الوصول الى البيانات المخزنة في هاتف سيد فاروق، رغم معارضة العملاق المعلوماتي، الذي يبرر رفضه بمحاذير تتعلق بأمن معلومات المستخدم.
 
جاء في طلب الاستئناف لدى محكمة فدرالية في كاليفورنيا ان "القرار لا يطلب خلافا لما ورد في تصريحات صدرت من آبل ان تؤمن مدخلا سريا (خلفيا)لكل هواتف آيفون".
 
وتابع الطلب ان "ذلك لن يفسح مدخلا امام القراصنة والمجرمين الى هواتف آيفون، كما انه لا يطلب من آبل ان تقوم بقرصنة مستخدميها او ان تفك شيفرة هواتفها".
 
ويهدف الاجراء القضائي الجديد الى تسريع الجهود لحمل "آبل على التعاون". وكانت القاضية في كاليفورنيا شيري بيم اعلنت في وقت سابق من هذا الاسبوع ان المجموعة يجب ان "تقدم مساعدة تقنية معقولة".
 
وامام "آبل" مهلة بضعة ايام فقط لتقدم مبرراتها رسميًا امام القضاء، الا انها نددت بالطلب "غير المسبوق"، والذي تتجاوز تبعاته القضية المعنية"، وشكت من ان ذلك سيخلق مدخلا سريا يمكن ان يخل بامن اجهزة المجموعة وزبائنها.
 
مخاوف تسويقية
جاء في الاستئناف ان "آبل" تبرر رفضها على ما يبدو بـ"مخاوف تسويقية" لان احدا لم يطلب من الشركة برنامجا يمكن ان يستخدمه قراصنة معلوماتيون. ومن المقرر ان تعقد الجلسة امام القضاء في 22 اذار/مارس، بحسب الاستئناف.
 
وتابعت الوزارة ان "الطلب ملح بما ان آبل ابدت نية واضحة بانها لن تلتزم" بالقرار الاول الصادر من القضاء، مضيفة ان الهاتف يمكن ان "يتضمن اتصالات وبيانات اساسية... لم نتمكن من الوصول اليها حتى الان".
 
ويؤكد طلب الاستئناف الذي تم التقدم به الجمعة ان "آبل" لديها القدرات التقنية على مساعدة "اف بي آي"، الذي يطالب بتعطيل نظام يقوم بمحو كل البيانات على "آيفون" بعد محاولات فاشلة عدة لاختراق كلمة السر.
 
لم تعلق "آبل" على الفور الجمعة، الا ان المدير العام للمجموعة تيم كوك كان صرح في وقت سابق من الاسبوع الحالي ان اعطاء برنامج كفيل بالقيام بذلك ينطوي على مخاطر كبيرة، لان ذلك من شانه ان يسمح لاشخاص لديهم نوايا سيئة بفك شيفرة اي هاتف "آيفون"، مما يثير قلقا كبيرا حول حماية الحياة الشخصية.
 
وكتب كوك في رسالة مفتوحة الى زبائن "آبل" ان "الحكومة تطالبنا بشيء لا نملكه ببساطة وامر نرى انه خطير جدا لنستحدثه. انهم يطلبون منا ايجاد مدخل سري الى آيفون". وتابع كوك "مثل هذا البرنامج غير الموجود حاليا سيتيح اذا وقع بين ايدي شريرة فك شيفرة اي هاتف آيفون".
 
وتثير القضية غضب المدافعين عن الحريات المدنية، الذين يخشون ان تؤدي الى رقابة مبالغ بها في الولايات المتحدة، خصوصا بعد فضائح تجسس وكالة الامن القومي في السنوات الاخيرة. في المقابل يتهم اخرون "آبل" بعرقلة تحقيق اساسي في مسالة امنية.
 
ورفض مسؤولون اميركيون كبار التكهن حول طريقة تطبيق القرار الذي ستصدره القاضية بيم هذا الاسبوع. ويمكن من حيث المبدا ان تتهم "آبل" بالاساءة الى القضاء اذا رفضت تطبيق الحكم.
 
وهناك فرص كبيرة بان يطول الاجراء القضائي للنظر في سلسلة من المسائل التقنية والقضائية على حد سواء. كما ان الجانبين يمكن ان يتقدما بطلبات استئناف وحتى ان تصل القضية امام المحكمة العليا.
 
دونالد ترامب يدعو الى مقاطعة آبل

وكان  دعا رجل الاعمال المرشح للانتخابات التمهيدية للحزب الجمهوري دونالد ترامب الجمعة الى مقاطعة المجموعة المعولماتية العملاقة آبل الى ان تفك شيفرة هاتف آيفون استخدمه احد منفذي اعتداء سان بيرناردينو في كانون الاول/ديسمبر الماضي.
وقال ترامب في تجمع في يوليز آيلاند في كارولاينا الجنوبية حيث ستنظم انتخابات الحزب الجمهوري السبت “يجب على آبل كشف شيفرة هذا الهاتف”.
واضاف “اعتقد ان ما عليكم فعله هو مقاطعة آبل الى ان تكشف هذا الرقم السري. هذا ما فكرت به الآن”. وتابع ان “هذا الهاتف ليس ملك الشاب النذل الذي قتل كل هؤلاء الناس، الهاتف ملك للسلطات”. وتابع ترامب انه يشتبه بان رئيس آبل تيم كوك “يريد ان يظهر الى اي حد هو تقدمي”.
ورفضت شركة آبل للمعلوماتية الاربعاء الماضي امرا قضائيا اميركيا صدر الثلاثاء بطلب من مكتب التحقيقات الفدرالي (اف بي آي) في اختراق هاتف آيفون يعود لاحد منفذي هجوم سان برناردينو الذي اودى بحياة 14 شخصا مطلع كانون الاول/ديسمبر في كاليفورنيا.
وامرت القاضية الكاليفورنية شيري بيم في قرارها آبل “بتوفير مساعدة تقنية معقولة” للاف بي اي تتيح له “الاطلاع على المعطيات المحفوظة” في الهاتف.
وطلبت من آبل خصوصا تقديم برنامج يمكن استخدامه على هذا الهاتف حصريا والسماح للمحققين بالالتفاف على محو المعطيات التلقائي الذي يحدث عادة بعد عدة محاولات غير مجدية لاستخدام شيفرة الدخول.
واوضح ترامب بعد ذلك في تغريدة على موقع تويتر انه يستخدم منتجات آبل وسامسونغ. وكتب “اذا لم تعط آبل المعلومات الى السلطات فلن استخدم سوى سامسونغ الى ان يسلموا هذه المعلومات”.
واضاف “آمل ان يفعل الآخرون الامر نفسه”، مؤكدا ان “بلدنا بحاجة الى الامان ويجب ان يطالب به. حان الوقت لنتصرف بحزم وحكمة”.
وخلال آخر تجمع له قبل انتخابات كارولاينا الجنوبية، استفاد ترامب من الجدل نفسه ليدعم احد محاور حملته مكالبا آبل باعادة كل موظفيها الى الولايات المتحدة.
وقال المرشح للرئاسة “اريد ان اكون شاهدا على اليوم الذي تصنع فيه آبل منتجات على ارضنا”، مثيرا عاصفة من التصفيق الحاد. واضاف “سنعيد وظائفنا الى بلدنا”.
Apple reveals FBI screw-up: Tech giant says government lost access to shooters iPhone backup by changing passcode hours after the attack - as Trump calls for brand boycott

    Apple has fired back at the government saying they could have accessed the San Bernandino shooters iPhone after the tragic incident
    A spokesperson said that if the passcode had not been changed 24 hours after the phone was seized they could have gotten into the shooters cloud
    San Bernardino County Department of Public Health, who owned the phone, changed the password to gain access to some information 
    Apple CEO Tim Cook has refused to comply with the order to hack into one of the shooters iPhone
    Earlier Friday, the Justice Department sought to force Apple to work with the FBI to bypass the phones passcode 
    Federal prosecutors said Apples refusal appears to be based on its concern for its business model and public brand

Apple is firing back at the government saying they could have accessed the phone of the San Bernadino shooter had his password not been changed after the FBI seized the device.

Apple executives pointed out that Syed Farooks iCloud account had been reset with a new passcode by his employer, the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health, who owned the phone just 24 hours after the shooting.

Had that not happened his cloud would have been accessible if the phone was taken to a location where it recognized the Wi-Fi network according to ABC News.

This is just one of the four different ways Apple has offered to help the government get information from the phone they claim without using a backdoor that would allow them to hack directly into the device.

Apple was hit twice Friday over its refusal to crack open one of the San Bernardino terrorists iPhone with Donald Trump demanding a boycott and a fresh federal legal bid to force its hand.

The U.S. Department of Justice has filed a motion seeking to compel Apple to comply with a judges order for the company to unlock the iPhone belonging to one of the San Bernardino shooters, according to a court document filed Friday.

Hours after the DOJ filed the motion, Trump called for a boycott on the company until it complies with the court order. 

The FBI is seeking the tech giants help to access the shooters phone, which is encrypted. The company so far has pushed back, and on Thursday won three extra days to respond to the order.  

Prosecutors said the company has chosen to repudiate a judges order instead of following it...


WHAT INVESTIGATORS WANT

Judge Sheri Pym of U.S. District Court in Los Angeles said that Apple must provide reasonable technical assistance to investigators seeking to unlock the data on an iPhone 5C that had been owned by Syed Rizwan Farook.

That assistance includes disabling the phones auto-erase function, which activates after 10 consecutive unsuccessful passcode attempts, and helping investigators to submit passcode guesses electronically.

However, Apple says this is akin to a master key, capable of opening hundreds of millions of locks - from restaurants and banks to stores and homes.

 

The department also says Apple designs its products to allow technology - rather than the law - to control access to critical data. 

Apple CEO Tim Cook first said that the company would be fighting the order in a strongly-worded statement issued Wednesday, saying complying with the FBIs orders would set a dangerous precedent. 

Perhaps the biggest dig at Apple in the latest motion was prosecutors allegations that the company was doing it all to enhance its brand.  

In the motion, prosecutors claim that before Apple updated the software on their iPhones, the company regularly complied with government warrants to search phones.

Based on Apples recent public statement and other statements by Apple, Apples current refusal to comply with the Courts Order, despite the technical feasibility of doing so, instead appears to be based on its concern for its business model and public brand marketing strategy, the motion reads.

While the technology to break into phones may have been present on older versions of the iPhone software, Cook claimed that the company no longer has the technological means to break into newer versions and that creating one would compromise all user security. 

In the wrong hands, this software - which does not exist today - would have the potential to unlock any iPhone in someones physical possession, Cook wrote. 

The FBI may use different words to describe this tool, but make no mistake: Building a version of iOS that bypasses security in this way would undeniably create a back door. 

And while the government may argue that its use would be limited to this case, there is no way to guarantee such control.

Prosecutors addressed this concern in the motion, saying that Apple doesnt even need to turn over the software to them at all. 

The story has become a hot topic on the presidential campaign trail, and on Friday, Republican front-runner Donald Trump reiterated his support for the Feds by calling for a Apple boycott. 

What I think you ought to do is boycott Apple until such time as they give that security number. Boycott apple! Trump said at a rally at a country club in South Carolina.

First of all, the phones not owned by this young thug that killed all these people. The phones owned by the government. Okay? Not even his phone! We dont have to go that far, he added.

Trumps statement immediately became the butt of jokes online, as users on Twitter pointed out that many of the presidential candidates tweets show they were written on his iPhone - but he then made clear he was going to use his Samsung instead.

Apple is getting support from some however, including businessman Mark Cuban who wrote about the company on his blog Friday. 

Amen. A standing ovation. They did the exact right thing by not complying with the order, said Cuban. 

They are exactly right that this is a very, very slippery slope. And while the FBI is attempting to be very clear that this is a one off request, there is no chance that it is.

In his statement on Wednesday, Cook noted the court order and said this moment calls for public discussion, and we want our customers and people around the country to understand what is at stake.

Cook argued that the order has implications far beyond the legal case at hand.

Pyms order to Apple to help the FBI hack into an encrypted iPhone belonging to one of the San Bernardino, California shooters set the stage for a legal fight between the federal government and Silicon Valley over a first-of-its-kind ruling.

The order, in which Apple is being directed to assist the FBI in breaking into an encrypted iPhone belonging to one of the San Bernardo shooters, represents a significant victory for the Justice Department.

The Obama administration has embraced stronger encryption as a way to keep consumers safe on the Internet, but struggled to find a compelling example to make its case.

Cook said that the U.S. government order would undermine encryption by using specialized software to create a back door that he compared to a master key, capable of opening hundreds of millions of locks. 

Josh Earnest, the White House spokesman today deferred to the Justice Department but said it was important to recognize the government is not asking Apple to create a new backdoor to its products.

He said the case was about federal investigators learning as much as they can about this one case.

The president certainly believes that is an important national priority, he said. 

FBI Director James Comey told members of Congress last week that encryption is a major problem for law enforcement who find a device that cant be opened even when a judge says theres probable cause to open it.

Currently, Apple does not have a means of breaking the passcode, but the court has ordered the company to figure out a way around the passcode to gain access to the phones contents. Above, the suspects battered SUV 

The ruling on Tuesday tied the problem to the deadliest terrorist attack on U.S. soil since the 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Syed Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, killed 14 people in a December 2 shooting at a holiday luncheon for Farooks co-workers. The couple later died in a gun battle with police.

Federal prosecutors told the judge in the court proceeding - that was conducted without Apple being allowed to participate - that investigators cant access a work phone used by Farook because they dont know his passcode and Apple has not cooperated.

Under U.S. law, a work phone is generally the property of a persons employer. The judge told Apple to provide an estimate of its cost to comply with her order, suggesting that the government will be expected to pay for the work.

Apple has provided default encryption on its iPhones since 2014, allowing any devices contents to be accessed only by the user who knows the phones passcode.

The ruling by Pym, a former federal prosecutor, requires Apple to supply highly specialized software the FBI can load onto the county-owned work iPhone to bypass a self-destruct feature, which erases the phones data after too many unsuccessful attempts to unlock it. 

The FBI wants to be able to try different combinations in rapid sequence until it finds the right one.

However, some security experts say the request is possible because the phone in question is an older iPhone 5C which does not have a fingerprint sensor or Apples latest security feature, known as a secure enclave.

 
Based on my initial reading of the request and my knowledge of the iOS platform, I believe all of the FBIs requests are technically feasible, said Dan Guido on 

The Electronic Frontier foundation, a nonprofit well known for fighting for digital rights, backed Tim Cook and Apple.

We are supporting Apple here because the government is doing more than simply asking for Apples assistance, it said.

For the first time, the government is requesting Apple write brand new code that eliminates key features of iPhone security—security features that protect us all. 

Essentially, the government is asking Apple to create a master key so that it can open a single phone.

Second row from left: Juan Espinoza, Aurora Godoy, Shannon Johnson, Larry Daniel Kaufman and Damian Meins. Bottom row from left: Tin Nguyen, Nicholas Thalasinos, Yvette Velasco and Michael Wetzel 

And once that master key is created, were certain that our government will ask for it again and again, for other phones, and turn this power against any software or device that has the audacity to offer strong security.

The U.S. government wants us to trust that it wont misuse this power. But we can all imagine the myriad ways this new authority could be abused. 

Even if you trust the U.S. government, once this master key is created, governments around the world will surely demand that Apple undermine the security of their citizens as well.

It was not immediately clear what investigators believe they might find on Farooks work phone or why the information would not be available from third-party service providers, such as Google or Facebook, though investigators think the device may hold clues about whom the couple communicated with and where they may have traveled.

The couple took pains to physically destroy two personally owned cell phones, crushing them beyond the FBIs ability to recover information from them. 

 

They also removed a hard drive from their computer; it has not been found despite investigators diving for days for potential electronic evidence in a nearby lake.

Farook was not carrying his work iPhone during the attack. 

It was discovered after a subsequent search. It was not known whether Farook forgot about the iPhone or did not care whether investigators found it.

The phone was running the newest version of Apples iPhone operating system, which requires a passcode and cannot be accessed by Apple, unlike earlier operating systems or older phone models. 

San Bernardino County provided Farook with an iPhone configured to erase data after 10 consecutive unsuccessful unlocking attempts. 

The FBI said that feature appeared to be active on Farooks iPhone as of the last time he performed a backup.

 
 
 

The judge didnt spell out her rationale in her three-page order, but the ruling comes amid a similar case in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York.

Investigators are still working to piece together a missing 18 minutes in Farook and Maliks timeline from December 2. 

Investigators have concluded they were at least partly inspired by the Islamic State group; Maliks Facebook page included a note pledging allegiance to the groups leader around the time of the attack. 

In 2014, Apple updated its iPhone operating system to require that the phone be locked by a passcode that only the user knows. 

Previously, the company could use an extraction tool that would physically plug into the phone and allow it to respond to search warrant requests from the government. 

TIM COOKS FULL STATEMENT ON APPLES DECISION TO FIGHT HACKING ORDER 

A Message to Our Customers

The United States government has demanded that Apple take an unprecedented step which threatens the security of our customers. We oppose this order, which has implications far beyond the legal case at hand.

This moment calls for public discussion, and we want our customers and people around the country to understand what is at stake.

The Need for Encryption

Smartphones, led by iPhone, have become an essential part of our lives. People use them to store an incredible amount of personal information, from our private conversations to our photos, our music, our notes, our calendars and contacts, our financial information and health data, even where we have been and where we are going.

All that information needs to be protected from hackers and criminals who want to access it, steal it, and use it without our knowledge or permission. Customers expect Apple and other technology companies to do everything in our power to protect their personal information, and at Apple we are deeply committed to safeguarding their data.

Compromising the security of our personal information can ultimately put our personal safety at risk. That is why encryption has become so important to all of us.

For many years, we have used encryption to protect our customers personal data because we believe its the only way to keep their information safe. We have even put that data out of our own reach, because we believe the contents of your iPhone are none of our business.

The San Bernardino Case

We were shocked and outraged by the deadly act of terrorism in San Bernardino last December. We mourn the loss of life and want justice for all those whose lives were affected. The FBI asked us for help in the days following the attack, and we have worked hard to support the governments efforts to solve this horrible crime. We have no sympathy for terrorists.

When the FBI has requested data thats in our possession, we have provided it. Apple complies with valid subpoenas and search warrants, as we have in the San Bernardino case. We have also made Apple engineers available to advise the FBI, and weve offered our best ideas on a number of investigative options at their disposal.

We have great respect for the professionals at the FBI, and we believe their intentions are good. Up to this point, we have done everything that is both within our power and within the law to help them. But now the U.S. government has asked us for something we simply do not have, and something we consider too dangerous to create. They have asked us to build a backdoor to the iPhone.

Specifically, 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 someones physical possession.

The FBI may use different words to describe this tool, but make no mistake: Building a version of iOS that bypasses security in this way would undeniably create a backdoor. And while the government may argue that its use would be limited to this case, there is no way to guarantee such control.

The Threat to Data Security

Some would argue that building a backdoor for just one iPhone is a simple, clean-cut solution. But it ignores both the basics of digital security and the significance of what the government is demanding in this case.

In todays digital world, the key to an encrypted system is a piece of information that unlocks the data, and it is only as secure as the protections around it. Once the information is known, or a way to bypass the code is revealed, the encryption can be defeated by anyone with that knowledge.

The government suggests this tool could only be used once, on one phone. But thats simply not true. Once created, the technique could be used over and over again, on any number of devices. In the physical world, it would be the equivalent of a master key, capable of opening hundreds of millions of locks — from restaurants and banks to stores and homes. No reasonable person would find that acceptable.

The government is asking Apple to hack our own users and undermine decades of security advancements that protect our customers — including tens of millions of American citizens — from sophisticated hackers and cybercriminals. The same engineers who built strong encryption into the iPhone to protect our users would, ironically, be ordered to weaken those protections and make our users less safe.

We can find no precedent for an American company being forced to expose its customers to a greater risk of attack. For years, cryptologists and national security experts have been warning against weakening encryption. Doing so would hurt only the well-meaning and law-abiding citizens who rely on companies like Apple to protect their data. Criminals and bad actors will still encrypt, using tools that are readily available to them.

A Dangerous Precedent

Rather than asking for legislative action through Congress, the FBI is proposing an unprecedented use of the All Writs Act of 1789 to justify an expansion of its authority.

The government would have us remove security features and add new capabilities to the operating system, allowing a passcode to be input electronically. This would make it easier to unlock an iPhone by brute force, trying thousands or millions of combinations with the speed of a modern computer.

The implications of the governments demands are chilling. If the government can use the All Writs Act to make it easier to unlock your iPhone, it would have the power to reach into anyones device to capture their data. The government could extend this breach of privacy and demand that Apple build surveillance software to intercept your messages, access your health records or financial data, track your location, or even access your phones microphone or camera without your knowledge.

Opposing this order is not something we take lightly. We feel we must speak up in the face of what we see as an overreach by the U.S. government.

We are challenging the FBIs demands with the deepest respect for American democracy and a love of our country. We believe it would be in the best interest of everyone to step back and consider the implications.

While we believe the FBIs intentions are good, it would be wrong for the government to force us to build a backdoor into our products. And ultimately, we fear that this demand would undermine the very freedoms and liberty our government is meant to protect.

Trump tells FAKE story about US Army General torturing and executing 49 Muslims with bullets dipped in pigs blood as example of how best to deal with terrorism - and his audience laps it up

  • Donald Trump told a story about the murder of 49 Muslim prisoners with bullets dipped in pigs blood in a speech on Friday
  • Trump said that the man behind this was US Army General John Pershing and it happened during the early 1900s
  • The story is not true and never happened
  • See more news on Donald Trump at www.dailymail.co.uk/trump 

 

Donald Trump shared a story about the murder of 49 Muslim prisoners during a speech in South Carolina on Friday.

Trump told the audience about US Army General John Pershing and his killing of prisoners during the early 1900s.

He caught 50 terrorists that did tremendous damage and killed many people and he took the 50 terrorists and he took 50 men and he dipped 50 bullets in pigs blood, said Trump. 

And he had his men load his rifles, and he lined up the 50 people, and they shot 49 of those people, and the 50th person, he said; "You go back to your people and you tell them what happened," said Trump.

And for 25 years, there wasn’t a problem. For 25 years there wasn’t a problem. All right? So we better start getting tough.

The South Carolina audience burst into applause as soon as he finished telling the story - which is not true according to Snopes.

Trump told the audience - which included a woman in a shirt that read Make Racism Great Again - that this was an example of how he would get tough if he was president.

We better start getting tough and we better start getting vigilant, and we better start using our heads or we’re not gonna have a country, folks, said Trump. 

He also said of his tale; By the way, this is something you can read in the history books. Not a lot of history books, because they don’t like teaching this.

The story seems to come from the time when General Pershing was stationed in the Philippines between 1909 and 1913 and was governor of the Moro Province. 

He had previously served as military governor of the Moro Province at the turn of the century. 

The Moros were Muslim and at the end of General Pershings time in the Philippines the Battle of Bud Bagsak broke out, where Moro resistance fighters fought the Americans occupying the area.

The Moros and their leader were ultimately defeated by Pershing and his army.

Trump also spoke about waterboarding, labeling the practice as minimal, minimal, minimal torture.

After the speech one of his supporters, Eleanor Crume, spoke with MSNBC, saying; We need someone who can lead the country because people are scared to death.

It’s only a matter of time before terrorists come and start chopping Christian heads off in the United States.

Trump also took some time to talk about guns, and claimed that his numbers began to soar after the deadly massacre in Paris last November.

When Paris happened, everyone started saying, "We want Trump!" he claimed during his speech. 

The polls came in, 60 percent, 70 percent, 72 percent. This is 72 percent with 17 people running. Now we’re down to 6, we got rid of all these people. It’s so great. It’s so great.

He went on to say that if the 14 people who were killed in the San Bernardino shooting had guns there would have been less fatalities. 

Trump referenced this tragedy on the same day he called for a boycott of Apple because the company is refusing to allow the government to hack the phone of shooter Syed Farook.

I use both an iPhone and a Samsung and if Apple doesnt give the information to the authorities on the radical Islamic terrorists Ill only be using a Samsung - until such time as they give the information, he said during a speech earlier in the day.

Hopefully others will follow suit. Our country needs and should demand security. It is time to get tough and be smart! 

Trump currently holds a large lead over the other Republican candidates in South Carolina, where the primary election will be held Saturday.
