No worries, we’re giving you 5 democratic alternatives anyway
Believe me or not, actually, there’s a big, not even big — a huuuuge question: has Donald Trump ever used a computer? Apart from the photo fact of Mr. Trump’s sitting on a plane in front of the MacBook, the web world still lacks documentary evidence that will prove that Trump’s ever touched a computer mouse, touchscreen, or trackpad. De facto.
Back in July 2015, The New York Times investigated Trump’s tech use in a story about a deposition that he once gave. That’s how it was:
Television? “I don’t have a lot of time,” he said, “for listening to television.” Text messages? Not for him. For a future President who says he is an authority of modern business, Mr. Trump is super slow to adopt technology. In 2007, he said he had no home or office computer.
“Does your secretary send emails on your behalf?” he was asked. His secretary generally typed letters, Mr. Trump said. “I don’t do the email thing.” By 2013, Mr. Trump was still not sold on email. “Very rarely, but I use it,” he said under questioning.
When it comes to Trump’s relationship with the internet, we’ve found that the situation is not much better here.
“We’re losing a lot of people because of the Internet,” Trump said. “We have to go see Bill Gates and a lot of different people that really understand what’s happening. We have to talk to them about, maybe in certain areas, closing that Internet up in some way. Somebody will say, ‘Oh freedom of speech, freedom of speech.’ These are foolish people. We have a lot of foolish people. (2015, CNN)
Web browsing? It appears that he actually does read news from the web. But in a very haphazard and grotesque way, as we can see from this February 2, 2016 tweet showing Trump in front of printed off articles from the Huffington Post.
Donald Trump (President-Elect Donald Trump, pardon) is controversial and unpredictable figure not only when it comes to his future presidency, but in pretty much every aspect of his personality. Tech savviness is not the exception here. Thus, it was quite a challenge for us to go deep into envisioning and imagine the 5 apps that Mr. Trump could be using daily.
Nevertheless, we’ve gone further and explored the tissue of narcissism, grandiosity, and disagreeableness to give you this list. What are we waiting for?? Let’s do it!

We don’t really know if our next president can make America great again (our own predictions is not that optimistic, in fact), but what we do know is that, at least, you are free to make your apps great again. Appswell is a new dynamic software store, which gives you more useful functionality than Mac App Store, including automatic software updates, extended live customer care, expert tech reviews, and tons of genuinely collected apps from all over the internet specially for you.
According to Vox, the previous US presidents (1789 to 2016) came into the White House with an average of 13 years in public office and 5.6 years of military service. Donald Trump’s record zero — on both counts. But I think I know why Donald won the election. Thank you.
