Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump’s bid to make America great again by boycotting its most valuable company has already failed.
Three weeks ago Trump called for a boycott of all Apple products because the company has refused to comply with a federal order to unlock the San Bernardino shooter’s iPhone 5c, but it looks like his love for iPhone ultimately won.
