Trump’s Tweet Claiming He only Uses Government Phones Was Sent from An iPhone

President Donald Trump took to Twitter to respond to a recent New York Times article that reported he routinely uses his unsecured iPhones to speak with friends and associates instead of using a secure White House phone line.

“I only use Government Phones, and have only one seldom used government cell phone,” Trump said in a tweet sent from his account. He added, “Story is soooo wrong!”

While this is hardly the first time Trump has been critical of The New York Times’ reporting about him, eagle-eyed Twitter users quickly noticed something about the tweet itself: It was sent from an iPhone.

The Twitter app itself doesn’t reveal the platform a tweet was sent on, but the social network’s TweetDeck app does, which is how many discovered the tweet was sent from an iPhone.

But it’s not airtight proof the president himself sent the tweet from an iPhone he was using he could have, but his aides also have access to his Twitter account and often post for him.
