China suggests Trump should ditch ‘tapped’ iPhones for Huawei

Chinese and Russian spies are listening in on President Donald Trump's phone calls according to a New York Times report

Beijing has dismissed a U.S. newspaper report alleging Chinese intelligence eavesdropped on Donald Trump's calls and suggested the USA president should switch to a Chinese phone.

President Donald Trump on Thursday denied a report that he often calls friends to gripe or solicit advice on his unsecure iPhones, allowing Chinese spies to listen in and gain valuable insights into how to deal with the USA administration. Like the U.S., foreign governments like China and Russian Federation are well endowed with cybersecurity technology and are tapping the phones of influential leaders.

According to the New York Times report, President Trump is ignoring the standard White House protocol of using landlines for telephone conversations. "Third, if they are still concerned and want to be absolutely secure, they can abandon all modern communication devices and cut off all contact with the outside world".

The US President has reportedly been warned that his three personal iPhones are not secure, though he continues to use them to take calls with friends and confidants, reports the Times. She said that releasing such a report "would only add to evidence that it was fabricating fake news".

Yesterday's New York Times story was based on a draft memo that the newspaper reported has been circling since last spring. The Department of Health and Human Services told USA media it will not comment on alleged document leaks.

Trump was warned by United States intelligence agencies, that Chinese spies have been eavesdropping on his calls and exploiting the information as they negotiate an ongoing trade dispute, The New York Times reports.

US President Donald Trump talks on the phone aboard Air Force One during a flight to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to address a joint gathering of House and Senate Republicans on January 26, 2017.

Following a report from the New York Times that Russian Federation and China are taking advantage of his penchant for using his private iPhone, China's foreign ministry borrowed one of Trump's favorite words to describe the media. "Story is soooo wrong!" the president wrote.

"In what amounts to a marriage of lobbying and espionage, the Chinese have pieced together a list of the people with whom Mr Trump regularly speaks in hopes of using them to influence the president", the officials said, according to the newspaper.
