President Trump reportedly uses cellphones that are not equipped with “sophisticated security features,” which could make them vulnerable to hacking.
Trump uses two iPhones — one for calls and another for tweeting — and has rebuffed efforts to make them more secure because he claims it is “too inconvenient,” Politico reported on Monday.
Aides have attempted to convince Trump to swap out his phones — a process President Obama took part in every 30 days — but the president has resisted, the paper said.
Trump’s phone for tweeting has not been swapped out in more than five months, while it is unclear how long he has had his call-capable phone, according to Politico.
In response, a White House official told the paper that the call-capable phones “are seamlessly swapped out on a regular basis.”
However, the official said that the Twitter phone “does not necessitate regular change-out.”

Thai police detained leaders of an anti-junta protest on Tuesday who had tried to mark the fourth anniversary of a coup by marching to Government House, one of the largest acts of dissent since the army grabbed power.

Protest leaders flashed a three finger salute as they were led into a police van — a resistance symbol borrowed by Thailand’s anti-coup movement from the Hollywood movie “The Hunger Games”.
Disquiet with the junta is simmering in Thailand, despite a ban on political gatherings since a coup toppled the elected government of Yingluck Shinawatra on May 22, 2014.
Prime Minister Prayut Chan-O-Cha, who as army chief booted Yingluck’s administration from power, has suggested elections will be held in February next year.

The Schleswig-Holstein state prosecutor is advancing his case for the extradition of former Catalan President Carles Puigdemont. However, the state’s top court has ruled that Puigdemont cannot yet be rearrested.
The public prosecutor in the state of Schleswig-Holstein is preparing the paperwork to extradite former Catalan President Carles Puigdemont to Spain, where he would face charges of rebellion and disturbing the public order following a referendum last autumn in which a majority of voters expressed a clear preference for the semiautonomous region’s secession.
On Tuesday, however, a court ruled that Puigdemont, who was taken into custody by German authorities in March at the request of Spain, could not be rearrested because he doesn’t pose a “flight risk.”
Puigdemont, who on April 6 was ordered released pending a decision, is currently in Berlin. A court had already ruled earlier this spring that he could not be extradited on…

WHY ARE GLOBAL CRUDE OIL PRICES ON A RISE?
Production cuts by oil exporters, shrinking supplies from Venezuela and uncertainty over Iran’s contribution after U.S. decision to exit the nuclear deal have contributed to rise in crude prices.
However, there is a catch. The government might be blaming crude prices for record high petrol and diesel rates, but the last time petrol crossed 76 per litre, five years ago, it was 40 per cent costlier before taxes.
Fuel prices have shot up now because of very high taxes. Central tax on diesel has increased more than three-fold, and it has…
