"The president's use of his personal iPhone would raise concerns for intelligence officials because hostile or even non- hostile foreign intelligence services might be listening in on the conversations and learning who he's talking to, who he's influenced by and who might be a rich source of information", said Mary McCord, a former senior Justice Department official now at Georgetown University Law Center. She also sarcastically shared that if Americans are so anxious about iPhones being listened on, they could instead start using Huawei phones, one of China's most popular phone brands.

White House authorities reportedly leaked information about Trump's use of the iPhone, frustrated by his casual approach to security.

Hua also employed a decidedly Trumpian phrase in her dismissal of the original New York Times story, calling it "fake news".

Huawei is a Chinese company.

"Many of those Mr Trump speaks with, most often on one of his cellphones, such as hosts at Fox News, share the president's political views, or simply enable his sense of grievance about any number of subjects", the daily said. "I only use Government Phones, and have only one seldom used government cell phone", he wrote. Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov claimed that these accusations have been perceived with humor and think that the publication of such news is a sign that journalistic standards have already declined.
