China denies spying on Trump’s iPhone, says he should switch to Huawei
According to a recent report from The New York Times, China and Russia are regularly spying on President Trump when he opts to use his unsecured iPhone to call his friends. China is said to be using the information it gathers while listening in on these calls to keep the administration's trade war from escalating further by making a list of the people who Trump speaks with on a regular basis and using them to influence the president.
China was quick to dismiss the charges levied by the New York Times article. South China Morning Post reports that Hua Chunying, spokeswoman for the foreign ministry, said that if Trump is worried about his iPhone being tapped, he should switch to Huawei (the implication being that a Huawei phone would be more secure).
