Donald Trump is one of the public figures with whom the most controversy arises due to his statements both in press conferences and through his own Twitter. Now Donald Trump Demands Apple to Give Access to iPhones of Criminal Defendants.
Trump was elected president in the United States after a campaign whose main slogan was “ America first” or, in Spanish, First America. This meant reducing imports by establishing tariffs, thus trying to have the maximum possible independence from other great powers such as China.
Although we already know the problems that this type of policy has caused firms like Huawei, after the start of a trade war between the US and China, Trump has always defended American companies trying to get them to achieve the maximum benefits with decisions that favored them.
Apple is a firm that sells better in terms of security than Android manufacturers, however, privacy is one of the aspects that has always taken great carethe Cupertino company, even denying the FBI access to iPhones.
Donald Trump, through his Twitter account, has appealed to Apple asking that unlock the iPhones of murderers, drug dealers or other criminals, so that the police can review the content, which is stored encrypted and password-protected.
We are in a situation where Trump wants Apple to give the FBI access to to investigate further into the recent shooting in Pensacola, Florida, where a Saudi soldier in formation began shooting at other soldiers.
Apple has already provided the attacker's data that it stores in iCloud, its cloud service. But he says the iPhone doesn't have "back doors" for law enforcement to access encrypted data, as it would be dangerous to security and a risk to users' privacy.
Even William Barr, the attorney general, has criticized Apple's strict iPhone policy, believing it prevents investigators from fighting crime.
For the moment Apple has remained on the sidelines, so we'll see if the bitten apple firm decides to access this guy of "blackmail" or, on the contrary, they begin to cut some of their tax benefits that they were obtaining through the government led by Donald Trump.
What do you think of Donald Trump's action? Do you think Apple will unlock the iPhone?
