The role of a President in a country is supposed to be a very busy role. Thus seeing a president actively involved in social media is such a rarity. Trump changed it all, despite occupying one of the busiest executive seats in the world, Trump reserves time for his social media being a vocal user on Twitter. Trump’s bigger lips are on Twitter and there he regulatory airs his asserting mind.
The problem however was that Trump was so much in love with his old unsecured phone suspected to be a Samsung Galaxy that he took it along with him to the White House to continue tweeting. This generated a variety of frenzy across the world: admiration from us for his conservative doggedness and intense fear from senior U.S. officials even in the US Congress as the unsecured phone could easily be hacked to obtain very sensitive information in the White House.
Finally Trump seemed to have bent into pressure and the wind of change replacing his affectionate old Samsung with an iPhone. This was confirmed by a director of social media at the White House Dan Scavino Jr., following it up with a tweet.
@POTUS @realDonaldTrump has been using his new iPhone for the past couple of weeks here on Twitter. Yes, it is #POTUS45 reading & tweeting!

Well I understand why Trump in his pool of affluence and power is reluctant to get a modern phone. Truth is old habits die hard!
