GOP frontrunner Donald Trump has called for a boycott of Apple, despite its iPhone being the most widely used mobile handset in the US.

Speaking in the aftermath of a of high profile privacy conflict between the FBI and US tech giants like Apple, Facebook and Google over the release of a software to void their privacy protocols.

Trump said during a South Carolina rally: “I think what you ought to do is boycott Apple until such time as they give that security number. How do you like that? I just thought of that, Boycott Apple!”

He later tweeted the sentiment.

One reporter called out Trump who often tweets from an iPhone. He replied.

Meanwhile, across the Atlantic there’s a very popular petition calling to ban Trump from the country, sparked by his call to ban all Muslims form the US. It has reached almost 580k signatories.
