President Trump's iPhone Being Spied on by Russian Federation and China

President Trump's iPhone Being Spied on by Russian Federation and China

The officials told The Times that the Chinese and the Russians had managed to eavesdrop on the calls, prompting intelligence officials to warn Trump that his cellphone calls are not secure.

Speaking in an interview on Thursday, Hua Chunying, a frequent Chinese government spokesperson and deputy director of the country's foreign ministry information department, said that if Americans "are very anxious about iPhones being tapped, they can use Huawei".

Comments from China and Russian Federation were dismissive.

US President Donald Trump hasn't given up his personal cellphone, unlike previous presidents, according to a report in the New York Times.

United States intelligence agents say - according to The Times - that Trump takes electronic security very lightly and does not limit his communications to secure devices that he has access to as president.

President Donald Trump has criticized a report by the New York Times about the use of his personal cellphone.

The White House has dismissed The New York Times report that US President Donald Trump has three cellphones, saying he has only one official government iPhone, the security of which follows industry best practices.

Eden Hazard 'happy' to see out career with Chelsea
Maurizio Sarri says Eden Hazard does not need a move to Spain to get trophies and can win "everything" if he stays at Chelsea . With the current Chelsea squad, Hazard's main objective will be to guide them to a top-four finish.

It is believed the Trump's business contacts are unaware of the Chinese tactics and may unknowingly sell ideas and policy prescriptions to the White House, which may be detrimental to the USA, but will benefit China.

Then-candidate Trump would often criticise Hillary Clinton for her poor security during the 2016 presidential election.

This time, it appears that over two years after being told that as part of his current role as Proxy Leader of the Free World that he should stop using his unsecured phone line, he is still using his personal iPhone.

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. Trump, however, ridiculed the idea in a morning tweet.

Meanwhile, reports claimed that the Trump administration was preparing to order up to 1,000 US troops to the US-Mexico border to deal with the more than 5,000-strong migrant caravan making its way towards the border. "Story is soooo wrong!" the president said.

Predictably, everyone is denying any of this is true, with Trump taking to Twitter to claim that the article is "long and boring".

The president often criticizes the N.Y. Times for its coverage of his administration and has called out numerous stories as "fake news".
