But according to a financial disclosure report spotted by the AP, Trump holds somewhere between $1.1 million and $2.25 million in Apple stock. But hey, at least he doesn’t use an iPhone.

Trump weighed in on Apple’s legal battle with the FBI at a rally at a town hall event in South Carolina. Even he admitted it wasn’t a particularly well thought-through plan:
“What I think you ought to do is boycott Apple until such time as they give that security number. How do you like that? I just thought of that!”
It isn’t the first time Trump has pushed boycotts against companies he doesn’t like. Separately, he’s hit on Disney for its use of foreign labor, and Ford for manufacturing in Mexico.
Of course, he wouldn’t be stupid enough to own shares in those companies too — oh, wait, he’s an investor in those to the tune of millions.
The revelations were part of a 104-page financial disclosure filed by the presumptive Republican candidate, reporting his income and investments from various sources.
The response is going to be obvious: a few millions in investments is small fry for someone who claims to be worth ten billion. Owning stock in large, blue-chip companies is standard practice, and there’s a good chance Trump doesn’t manage those investments himself.
