China's foreign ministry has some suggestions for the Trump administration if it is anxious about foreign eavesdropping on the U.S. president's iPhones: use a Huawei handset instead.
Lastly, Hua recommended "they should stop using any modern communication equipment and cut off contact with the outside" if they want to ensure absolute security.
The comment comes after The New York Times published a report on Wednesday, saying that Chinese spies have been listening in on Trump's calls from his personal iPhone. While they may not have access physically to his phone, Chinese spies could intercept unsecured calls over mobile phone networks or tap the phones of people the President calls.
Donald Trump termed the NYT report as a "fake story" and said he rarely uses his cellphone.
The New York Times slid into third base in the sarcasm game by observing that Hua "ridiculed but did not exactly deny" its report on Trump's smartphones.
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.
Imagine the insane nights that spies and other bad actors from the likes of Russian Federation and China have had listening in to special presentations like, "Donald chats to an old business colleague he shouldn't be talking to" and "Donald calls Ivanka for a bedtime story". According to administration officials, Trump has two cell phones, one for Twitter and one for making calls, and has gone as long as five months without having the latter checked by security experts.
He can feel free to rebut the idea that anyone else is writing his tweets for him, but then he'd have to admit that he sent this tweet personally from an iPhone, fairly well in line with the Times reporting he claims is so fake, so ...
These aides also caution the president that the Russians are listening in to his conversations, while U.S. Intelligence states that Chinese spies are often listening in as well. But the president kept his personal phone because he did not have any numbers stored on the government phone, they said. I only use Government Phones, and have only one seldom used government cellphone. Story is soooo wrong!'
