It was earlier reported today by the New York Times that President Donald Trump's cellphone conversations are being intercepted by Chinese and Russian spies to gather information on his associates and policy positions.
Unlike the other government-managed phones, Trump uses the unaltered personal iPhone because of its ability to store contacts, The Times reported. Story is soooo wrong!' He also uses a third, personal iPhone, which is unsecured and vulnerable to hackers.
Trump has said signs of economic weakness in China and its slumping stock markets are proof of the effect US tariffs are having on the Chinese economy. Over the summer, President Trump officially banned all government use of Huawei products.
Hua said the New York Times should know if they publish this type of report it provides another piece of evidence of making fake news.
Also, Trump uses the second special iPhone with Twitter and social apps, which works only on a secured Wi-Fi router.
China, in particular, hoped to discern what Trump thinks and who shapes his thinking as the two countries fight a protracted trade war.
During a briefing in Beijing, Hua Chunying, a Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, said that if there are security concerns, Trump could switch to a phone made by Huawei, a Chinese company, or cut off communications altogether.
