"Just more made up Fake News!" said the US President in his reaction to the exclusive news story by The Times that China to a large extent and by Russian Federation to a lesser extent are listening to the calls made by him to his friends.

But the aides have said that the President, who has been pressured into using his secure White House landline more often these days, has still refused to give up his iPhones.

China's foreign ministry has some suggestions for the Trump administration if they are anxious about foreign eavesdropping on the USA president's iPhone: use a Huawei handset instead.

"White House officials say they can only hope he refrains from discussing classified information when he is on them", the news agency reports.

"If they are still not at ease, then in order to have an entirely secure device, they can stop using all forms of modern communication devices and cut off all ties with the outside world".

The Times reported that Trump's aides have repeatedly warned him that his cellphone calls are not secure, and they have told him that Russian spies are also routinely eavesdropping on the calls.

As per the report, USA intelligence officials have found that China is seeking to use information collected from Trump's personal calls to keep a trade war with the United States from escalating further. He noted in the tweet that he only uses government cell phone.

Blackstone Group chief executive Stephen Schwarzman and Las Vegas casino magnate Steve Wynn are among "ideal targets" identified by China who can eventually convey the Asian nation's views to Trump, the New York Times said.

His government also pledged justice for those accused of committing atrocities in Sri Lanka's civil war during Rajapaksa's rule. He lost a bid for re-election in 2015 amid mounting allegations of corruption and nepotism. "This is an anti democratic coup".


White House spokesman Hogan Gidley added that the Times report "presented inaccurate information about the President's cell phone and its usage".

Russia, too, dismissed the eavesdropping allegations. "I only use Government Phones, and have only one seldom used government cell phone", he wrote. The experts of the National Security Agency has modified "business" talks of the U.S. President, but could not receive "personal" ones. In particular, it is trying to use what it learns to prevent the current trade war between the two countries from escalating further, the Times said.

Trump's two official iPhones come with National Security Agency protections and it should be very hard for anyone to intercept conversations when he is using them.

In accusing the newspaper of fabricating news, Hua echoed language used by Trump, who has often accused the New York Times of making up stories.
