China says Trump should swap iPhone for Huawei amid bugging claim

  • Chinese Russian spies are listening to Trump's personal phone calls

He'd said as much the night before at a rally in Wisconsin, but his early-morning tweet seems to be inspired by a New York Times report about the president's careless cell phone use, which has allowed China and Russian Federation to listen in on his calls.

If the U.S. is still concerned about security, Trump could "abandon all modern communication devices and cut off contact with the outside completely", Hua said. The New York Times also points out that, since the calls are being intercepted as they travel between cell towers, calls from any phone could be vulnerable.

A 2012 report by a congressional panel said Huawei's equipment was a security risk and the USA has banned government personnel from using the company's devices.

"Reading this report, I feel that today in the United States there really are some people who are doing their utmost to win best script at the Oscars", she said.

President Trump " s cellphone was "left behind in a golf cart' during a visit to his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, two people familiar with the episode told The New York Times, the newspaper reported Wednesday.

American intelligence reports indicated that Chinese and Russian spies often listen in on President Donald Trump.


The New York Times said Trump typically relies on his cellphones when he does not want a call going through the White House switchboard and logged for senior aides to see.

On Twitter today, Trump said "I rarely use a cellphone and when I do it's government authorized".

Trump, of course, has access to secure lines inside the White House, but the crux of the Times story is that he uses cell phones so he can chat with long-time friends without having to alert staff about who he's talking to.

The Washington Post reported in June that a federal study found signs of sophisticated mobile phone spying near the White House and other sensitive locations previous year.

Intelligence agency leaders and others have said they are concerned that Huawei and other Chinese companies may be beholden to the Chinese government or ruling Communist Party, raising the risk of espionage. "Story is soooo wrong!"

President Donald Trump may have disclosed sensitive information to Fox News host Sean Hannity over an unsecured cellular phone.
