So the CEO sat down with ABC News to explain in depth why the corporation would not create a backdoor into people's phones for the government, saying:

"We know that doing this could expose people to incredible vulnerabilities. This is not something that we would create. This would be bad for America. It would also set a precedent that I believe many people in America would be offended by."

Powerful words. Do YOU agree this would endanger all Americans' rights?
