President Trump doesn’t have any advanced security features, or protection on his cell phone because it’s too “inconvenient,” according to Politico.
Two senior administration officials said that they asked the president to rotate his phone on a monthly basis but he declined.
According to the officials, President Trump has two cell phones. One only makes calls and the other has access to Twitter and news apps.
Three White House aides confirmed that his number does changes periodically.
The White House did not comment on the story. One White House official assured that his phones “are seamlessly swapped out on a regular basis through routine support operations. Because of the security controls of the Twitter phone and the Twitter account, it does not necessitate a regular change-out.”
Nate Jones, the former director of counterterrorism on the National Security Council said that Trump’s denial to listen to his aides, “could pose significant risks to the country.”
