Donald Trump escalated his attack on Apple Inc. on the final day of campaigning before the Republican primary in South Carolina, calling for a boycott until Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook honors a court order to unlock a terrorist's iPhone. 

"Boycott Apple until they give up the information," Trump said at a rally in Pawleys Island, South Carolina. "The phone is owned by the government...Tim Cook is looking to do a big number probably to show how liberal he is. Apple should give up."
