Short Bytes: The Apple Vs. FBI battle is getting nastier each day as more details are surfacing on the horizon and new people taking part in the debate. Along the similar lines, after Donald Trump called for an Apple boycott, Snowden responded by tweeting — “can we boycott trump instead”.
Earlier, the frontrunner of the Republican presidential nomination also spoke his views publicly at a rally. “First of all, Apple ought to give the security for that phone. What I think you ought to do is boycott Apple until such time as they give that security number,” he said.
“How do you like that? I just thought of that,” he continued.
After the event, he vowed to stop using iPhone if the company didn’t change its stance:
Previosuly Trump has expressed his anger by telling his supporters, “who do they think they are” and demanding that Apple should be forced to build “their damn computers and things in this country”.
Well, it seems that Edward Snowden got irritated by the intellectual remarks made by Mr. Trump and he responded via Twitter:
can we boycott trump instead

Can we expect a reaction from Mr. Trump?
Keeping in mind the past matters where Trump labeled Snowden a “grandstander” and indirectly suggested his execution, it won’t be surprising to see some more fireworks from Mr. Trump.
