After iPhone spying report, China suggests Trump switch to Huawei

After iPhone spying report, China suggests Trump switch to Huawei

"The New York Times has a new Fake Story that now the Russians and Chinese (glad they finally added China) are listening to all of my calls on cellphones", Trump tweeted.

The comments were earlier reported on by The Washington Post and The Verge.

China on Thursday denounced a US newspaper report that it is listening to President Donald Trump's phone calls, and suggested he exchange his iPhone for a cellphone made by Chinese manufacturer Huawei.

As for President Trump, he reacted just as everyone expected by going to Twitter and calling the NYT report "soooo wrong".

US President Donald Trump likes to tweet and make calls from a personal iPhone. The officials said they were doing so not to undermine Trump, but out of frustration with what they considered the president's casual approach to electronic security.

Wired took a more sober look at the accusations on Thursday, detailing some general concerns about intelligence agencies penetrating commercial cell phone systems and methods that might be theoretically used to monitor the calls of high-value government targets.

US President Donald Trump denied a report that he often calls friends to gripe or solicit advice on his unsecure iPhones. Fortunately for American intelligence agencies, Trump reportedly doesn't pay much attention during national security briefings, so there's little chance of any sensitive information being intercepted in these calls.

Loftus-Cheek cut the cakewalk again after the interval, side-footing home from 20 yards after seizing on a botched BATE clearance. It's very hard to solve the tactical problem without an improvement in the defensive phase of these three midfielders.

Apparently, China and Russian Federation are listening to his calls, the New York Times reported.

Amusingly the Chinese authorities have said that Trump should not mess around with overpriced and insecure Apple gear and should be using something more secure like a Huawei. I like Hard Lines.

The New York Times report is also remarkable, she said, because it shows that Trump's own person aides are so terrified by his behavior that they've leaked it to the press.

It's alleged that China is taking note of who Trump speaks to most frequently, so he can be targeted with pro-Chinese messages.

Trump has been asked to give up his third iPhone but wants to keep it as "unlike his other two phones, he can store his contacts in it".

China and the United States - the world's two largest economies - are engaged in an escalating trade war with each other.

One official said the Chinese were pushing for the friends to persuade Mr. Trump to sit down with Mr. Xi as often as possible.
