Presumptive Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump called for people to boycott Apple products back in February – whilst his campaign was tweeting from an iPhone. It now seems that isn’t the only disparity in his stance: CNET reports that Trump also has a seven-figure holding in AAPL stock.

Trump owns Apple stock valued at between $1.1 million and $2.25 million, according to a personal financial report he submitted to the US government earlier this week.

He’s also still tweeting from iPhone …

Trump called for the boycott after Apple refused to build a ‘GovtOS‘ version of iOS to disable the passcode protection on an iPhone held by the FBI. The FBI was later able to access the phone on its own, when it was found that there was nothing of interest on it.
