Re: Face facts
Trump’s tweets have been the first notice he has given the world of Presidential policy. He has fired advisers over Twitter, in his capacity as president. It is not a personal account.
You, along with him, are unable to differentiate *why* so much of what he does crosses the line between personal and official. He shouldn’t be employing his daughter and son-in-law as an adviser, for example.
Considered as an actual security risk, Trump carries his phone on his person. Any attack vector which could compromise a device OTA (like for example, a Bluetooth buffer overrun attack) is immediately fatal. *When* rather than if his personal phone is security-compromised, it can be used as a spying microphone in his pocket. He is POTUS FFS. Not a middle-level official.
Clinton’s risk was an *email server* running at home. Her attack surface was an email address. A physical attack would require someone to *enter her home*. The email server is not compromised even if she opened a dodgy email. Because it’s a server.
If you were saying that her device used to *read* emails could be compromised over the internet, that’s a reason not to access email at home, wherever the email server is located. But that isn’t the allegation. Most managers read their email at home, over VPN, including most governmental officials, and nobody is saying that was against policy. Running an email server is not that risk.
The server risk is someone entering her home could have stolen it and accessed the emails, breaking passwords with state-actor level methods.
*But that didn’t actually happen. Did it.*
