China Says Trump Should Switch to Huawei Phones to Improve Security

The President has been loath to part with his iPhones, which he uses to tweet out his responses to the latest news.

Trump uses the phones to speak to "old friends", and domestic spy agencies have determined China is seeking to use information from the calls to keep a trade war with the USA from escalating, the paper said, citing unidentified current and former United States officials.

Revelations about Trump's phone were first reported by the New York Times on Wednesday, and were leaked by security officials whom the Times described as frustrated "with what they considered the president's casual approach to electronic security". Except that I rarely use a cellphone, & when I do it's government authorized.

Should The New York Times, which published Trump-killing fan fiction, be held to the same standard the it expects of the president?

"American spy agencies, the officials said, had learned that China and Russian Federation were eavesdropping on the president's cellphone calls from human sources inside foreign governments and intercepting communications between foreign officials", the daily said.

Trump has, of course, insisted that the story is false, as have Chinese officials, although they managed to do it with a more insulting tone that would make International-Level Troll Vladimir Putin proud.

Granit Xhaka's free-kick was then tipped over by Leicester skipper Kasper Schmeichel as Arsenal looked to respond immediately. Aubameyang was in the right place at the right time again in the 66th minute as Arsenal conjured up another incisive raid.

Russian Federation is not believed to be running as sophisticated an effort to influence the president as China is, according to the Times.

A Chinese official also denied the Times report, dismissing it as "fake news".

The snarky reply signals to the ban on the use of Huawei devices by U.S. government agencies, signed into law by President Trump himself back in August.

The agencies are said to have learnt of the eavesdropping from people inside foreign governments and through intercepting communications between foreign officials, the report said. Second, if they really are very anxious about iPhones being tapped, they can change to using Huawei.

In a post on Twitter, Newman wrote that Trump "ALWAYS used his personal iPhone in [the White House] for calls even after being told over and over again about the security risk".
