And so far I haven't even gone to the dark place of WHY he wants to keep his old phone.  It might be innocence and naivite and an old man's comforts with what is familiar.  But it might be that he knows there is a security team watching his federal phone at all times, and he wants to do things on his phone without them knowing.

What could Trump want to do on a phone, without his own secret service knowing?

- phone calls to mistresses
- phone calls to Russia
- online gambling or porn
- maintaining sock puppets on social media (he has been caught using media sock puppets before)
- ongoing business deals
- insider trading
- calls from special lobbyists

The list goes on.  I agree that this is total speculation.  But if he DOES keep a personal cell phone, unsecured by his 24x7 team, we have to wonder WHY.

I haven't been following this thread very closely, so maybe this has been answered, but how do we know that he is the one sending those tweets from both devices?  Rather than having someone tweet for him?


The op suggests that Trump was using a personal non-secured Android phone device. The problem is FC has yet to provide anything which confirms that was indeed the case. He does cite a Washington Post article. But even his source had to concede that it was unclear whether Trump was actually using a personal device. But despite that, FC posts the op anyway making it appear as though it was a confirmed fact.

It IS their job, and they did it.  They gave him a super secure phone.  But he's also keeping his old phone (according to my preponderance of evidence).  The problem isn't that he lacks a secure phone, it's that he's still walking around with an unsecured one.  It's a walking microphone.


The problem is that you made most of your "evidence" up.

Here's another WP article (cited by the WP article in the OP), that says "Not only that, but many of Trump’s tweets are sent from an Android phone. Trump’s Android phone is apparently the same one he’s used for years."

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/politics/wp/2017/02/09/what-president-trump-...

This is being reported by WP, NYT, Wired, all kinds of outlets.  It's a common story now.  Trump has a personal android phone, one that he's had for years, and he is still using it.  Considering how thin-skinned he is, I would think Trump would refute it readily if it were untrue.  He could hold it out as another "bust of MLK" example of media bias.

He isn't because it IS his phone.  It IS the samsung android galaxy.  It has NOT been locked down -- it hasn't been updated in years.  And it is no doubt why US intel considers the white house situation room to be compromised:

Quote:
What’s going on was explained lucidly by a senior Pentagon intelligence official, who stated that “since January 20, we’ve assumed that the Kremlin has ears inside the SITROOM,” meaning the White House Situation Room, the 5,500 square-foot conference room in the West Wing where the president and his top staffers get intelligence briefings. “There’s not much the Russians don’t know at this point,” the official added in wry frustration.

- you really believe the SS never told Trump that he had an unsecure phone if he did? - you believe liberal media stories?

I absolutely believe they told him his unsecured phone was a security liability.  I also believe he doesn't care.

- you dont even know what phone he uses and if it was made secure by the SS - but discredited liberal media stories that dont like Trump making wild claims
- you really believe Trump doesn't care what gets out about his private conversations? - dont you think believing he doesn't care is delusional?

Just more of the same which is speculation at best.
None of this confirms he was indeed using a personal device.
