(Bloomberg) -- U.S. President Donald Trump called for Apple Inc. to “step up to the plate” and suggested the company unlock iPhones used by the gunman behind the Dec. 6 terrorist attack on a Florida Navy base.
In a tweet on Tuesday, Trump said the U.S. government helps Apple on trade and other issues, so in return, the Cupertino, California-based technology giant should unlock phones used by “criminal elements.”

Apple rejected the assertion that it hasn’t helped, saying that it provided “gigabytes” of data from to cloud backups of the devices.

United States: in Florida, Donald Trump surrounds himself with his evangelical supporters to maintain his popularity
Donald Trump launched Friday an evangelical coalition in support of his re-election in 2020 to rally evangelical Christians to his cause. However, this electorate is today very divided.
Donald Trump sets out to win back the evangelical Christians. The, candidate for a second term in 2020, goes on Friday, January 3, to a gigantic church in Miami (Florida), King Jesus International Ministry, also known as El Rey Jesus. Its objective: to maintain its strong popularity with its voters, by launching "the evangelical coalition for Trump", surrounded by 70 pastors and 15,000 to 20,000 faithful committed to its cause.
An electorate which had massively voted for Donald Trump in 2016 but which this year seems a little more divided. At the time, Evangelical Protestants voted over 80% overwhelmingly for him, but among these conservative Christians, the president's popularity rating dropped slightly. In the latest polls, it is now 70%.
The American president has also lost significant support. The Christianity Today magazine, created in the 1950s by the famous pastor Billy Graham, published a vitriolic editorial on December 19 stating: "Trump should be removed." "It’s a moral judgment more than a political one," magazine chief editor Gall Galli said on CBS. "Donald Trump's morality makes him not up to the presidential office. It is true that he gave us what we wanted, on abortion for example, but with this story impeachment is no longer in the balance, "he said.

Despite everything, Donald Trump offered many pawns to this community by installing Mike Pence at the vice-presidency, and two conservative judges at the Supreme Court. In the coming months, the current president will spare no effort to conserve this electorate, which represents about a quarter of the American population, or between 60 and 80 million people.
