Trump Worried About Keeping Phone at WH: Report
Donald Trump wants to keep his Android cell phone once he enters the office of President in January.
The Hill reports:
President-elect Donald Trump is concerned that he will not be able to continue using his Android cellphone once he takes office, according to a new report.
According to The New York Times, Trump voiced concerns to his aides over becoming isolated without the phone and keeping in contact with his friends.
Trump became known for tweeting at all hours of the day during his presidential campaign.
At times, the tweets came from his Android phone, which the Twitter application may denote at the bottom of tweets.
Days before the election, President Obama mocked Trump after a report indicated the businessman’s aides had revoked his access to his Twitter account.
“Apparently his campaign has taken away his Twitter,” Obama said during a rally for Hillary Clinton. “In the last two days, they had so little confidence in his self control, they said: ‘We’re just going to take away your Twitter.'”
“Now, if somebody cant handle a Twitter account, they can’t handle the nuclear code,” Obama said. “If somebody starts tweeting at three in the morning because ‘SNL’ made fun of you, then you can’t handle the nuclear codes.”
The report also said that Trump’s recently opened Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., may replace the Blair House in hosting international dignitaries.
According to the report, Trump is also in the process of speaking with the Secret Service about how often he can go to Trump Tower in New York City. The president-elect wants to vacation at his own resorts, including Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Fla.
Following his victory over Hillary Clinton, the Times reported that Trump had hoped to split his time between the White House and his Manhattan penthouse.
