The White House threw cold water on a report this week that claimed China listens in on phone calls President Donald Trump makes on his personal iPhone and tries to influence him through the people he talks to.
Comments from China and Russian Federation were dismissive. "If they are still not reassured, for the sake of absolute security, they may stop using all modern communications devices and cut themselves off from the outside world".
According to that Times report, White House aides have attempted to intervene and put an end to those unsecured cell phone calls-but have been unsuccessful in their efforts because the 45th president has steadfastly refused to give up his iPhones.
"President Trump took to Twitter to respond to a recent New York Times article that reported he routinely uses his unsecure iPhones to speak with friends and associates, instead of using a secure White House phone line". Huawei has denied that its devices are compromised in this way.
The president spent a total of 33 days at Trump National Golf Club Bedminster during 2017, according to a TrumpGolfCount.com, a website that keeps a tally of his trips to that resort and others. "Story is soooo wrong!" the president wrote.

China on Thursday denounced a US newspaper report that it is listening to President Donald Trump's phone calls, and suggested he exchange his iPhone for a cellphone made by Chinese manufacturer Huawei.
Mr Trump dismissed the report.
In September, Trump demanded that the N.Y. Times reveal the name of the anonymous source who wrote an op-ed claiming to work from within the administration to undermine the president.
