National emergency plan announced via iPhone Notes app? Twitter noticed


House Speaker Nancy Pelosi rallied against the possibility of President Donald Trump declaring a national emergency. She says Republicans “should have some dismay to the door that they are opening.”

President Donald Trump plans to declare a national emergency to get more funding for a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border while he signs a bill that provides some money for a physical barrier there, the White House said.

And when White House press secretary Sarah Sanders announced the decision Thursday via an image of her statement on Twitter, users noticed that it appeared to be written in Apple’s Notes app on an iPhone. 

Notes, known for its textured background and sans serif font, has long been used in celebrity apologies and shopping lists, among its many other everyday applications, and some on social media noted that national emergencies can now be added to that list.
