Apple Won't Provide Funding for GOP Convention Over Trump

Posted by · 11021 views · Translate

Apple is holding back funding for the GOP's 2016 presidential convention over statements made by Donald Trump, reports Politico. Trump has criticized Apple for making its devices in China and for resisting a request from the FBI to unlock the San Bernardino shooter's iPhone.

Apple has told Republican leaders it will not provide funding or other support for the party’s 2016 presidential convention, as it's done in the past, citing Donald Trump’s controversial comments about women, immigrants and minorities.

Facebook, Google, and Microsoft have all promised some support to the event which will be held in Cleveland next month. Typically large tech firms contribute equally to both parties, however, Apple won't be offering tech or cash support.

When asked to comment on the report, a GOP spokeswoman said: "We are working with a variety of major tech partners who are focused on being part of the American political process."

Apple is more concerned with faggot's rights than doing REAL innovation! Keep away from politics CRAPapple - you know those people fed up with these political shites have the power of the purse do not ever forget that! I'd rather have a self-made billionaire run this country with both elitists in both parties against him than the money laundering & crook HillDog or that senile "Oh promise me the moon and the stars" sanders! Trump2016 FTW a-holes!

Trump is the best thing that could happen to this country. I'm tired of whiney millennials who complain about everything.

As you read this, keep in mind I'm neither an Apple fan boy (they frequently piss me off) nor a liberal... I'm just not an a-hole or a nutjob. I don't understand your complaint about "real innovation"... They recently came up with the Apple Watch, they've revamped the Apple TV with apps, they're tackling the Home head on, they're working on some kind of car project, and they keep improving all their product lines. What's missing for you, spaceships? You seem to be just an incoherent angry person, which pretty much fits the profile of Trump supporters. Educate yourself, and come up with coherent, rational solutions for the problems. Don't just lash out. Peace.

Trump is the most stupid and racist president in the world. If he is the president, he will destroy our economy and relationships with the rest of the world.
