Donald Trump may get highly secured “IPhone”

Published

New York,Jan 21 2017: After tooking the oath to become the 45th US President Donald Trump jumped into a high-security ring,one of the things he was forced to do was to swap his Android smartphone for a “potentially modified iPhone”.

According to a report in the New York Times, Trump traded in his Android phone for a secure, encrypted device approved by the US Secret Service with a new number that few people possess.

The new gadget is reportedly to safeguard the US President from budding threats posed by hackers gaining access.

According to a report in Appleinsider, Trump may follow the footprints of his predecessor Barack Obama who was the first US president to carry a cellphone — initially starting with a modified BlackBerry and later switched to an iPhone.

Last year, Obama said the device given by Secret Service to the President came deprived of all features and heavily modified to ensure his safety.

“It does not take pictures, you cannot text, the phone does not work … you cannot play your music on it,” Obama had said of his own government-approved smartphone last year.

Similarly, Trump’s new device is likely to be similar to that of Obama’s.

It is possible to lock down an Android phone by enabling full-disk encryption or writing a customised version of Android.

But an iPhone is a simpler option. Full-disk encryption is on by default in iOS 8 and later and any device with a Touch ID sensor also has a Secure Enclave that makes even manual hacking difficult without a warrant.

This week Trump was forced to abandon his cherished “Trump” 757 aircraft for an Air Force jet, the New York Times said.

Trump says Kim Jong Un wants to meet ‘as soon as possible’ and that he’s ‘very honorable’

  • President Donald Trump continued his recent trend of praising North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Tuesday by saying he was “very honorable” and “very open.”

  • Trump has a habit of mixing praise of Kim with threats, but has lately taken to praising the North Korean leader.

  • Trump is set to become the first US president to ever meet face to face with a North Korean leader after Kim made a set of stunning concessions and appeared to cave to US demands, but experts are skeptical.

President Donald Trump continued his recent trend of praising North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Tuesday by saying he was “very honorable” and “very open” ahead of a planned meeting between the two leaders.

“Kim Jong Un – he really has been very open and, I think, very honorable from everything we’re seeing,” Trump said to reporters, as French President Emmanuel Macron visited the White House.

Trump has proven eager to meet with and conduct diplomacy with Kim despite spending almost all of 2017 threatening North Korea with nuclear annihilation and responding to Pyongyang’s own threats.

But since the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics in South Korea, and sweeping rounds of US-led sanctions after intercontinental ballistic missile tests and a massive nuclear test, Kim has opened himself up to diplomacy.

First North Korea offered to meet South Korean President Moon Jae-in, then made the same offer to Trump, and then Kim unexpectedly went to Beijing to meet Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Trump reportedly accepted the offer to meet Kim without consulting his secretary of state at the time, Rex Tillerson. South Korea’s Moon was less eager, but ultimately agreed when Kim agreed to meet his conditions.

Trump previously said he’d be “honored” to talk to Kim, which he now looks likely to achieve.

He’s also expressed admiration for Kim’s leadership of North Korea, despite the fact that the regime runs labor camps that have been likened to Auschwitz in Nazi-controlled Europe.

“Not many 27-year-old men could go in and take over a regime … Say what you want, but that’s not easy – especially at that age,” Trump told ABC News before his inauguration in January 2016.

“How many young guys – he was like 26 or 25 when his father died – take over these tough generals, and all of a sudden … he goes in, he takes over, and he’s the boss,” Trump said. “You gotta give him credit.”

Trump is set to become the first US president to ever meet face to face with a North Korean leader after Kim made a set of stunning concessions and appeared to cave to US demands.

But experts warn Business Insider that North Korea has entered into and backed out of talks with the US before, and may simply be working to gain sanctions relief as the country’s economy falters.
