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 US from escalating, the paper said, citing unidentified current and former USA officials.

"Chinese spies are often listening these phone calls and putting to use invaluable insights into how to best work the president and affect administration policy", the NYT said citing unnamed current and former USA officials.

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

Trump's cell phone use has been noted throughout his tenure, and security experts have raised concerns in the past.

Trump's aides have repeatedly warned him that his cellphone calls are not secure, The New York Times said.

Mr Trump pushed back against the idea that he uses insecure mobile phones, tweeting that he only uses government phones "and have only one seldom used government cell phone".

The Times, citing current and former US officials, had said that the US President uses the iPhones to speak to "old friends", and domestic spy agencies had determined China was seeking to use information from the calls to keep a trade war with the US from escalating. The Times reported they have a strategy to feed arguments to friends of Mr Trump's friends, in the hope that Beijing's views will be delivered to the president from sources he deems trustworthy.

Pearce then repeated the Game 3 feat of Jackie Bradley Jr ., who also hit a tying homer in the eighth off Jansen. But just keep in mind to call their Game 4 victory this: The kind of comeback from which champions are forged.

Russia, too, dismissed the eavesdropping allegations. The official devices have been modified by the National Security Agency to limit their capabilities, but the personal phone where he can store contacts isn't, the paper said.

"We already treat these sort of stories with a certain humor", said presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov.

The agencies have also determined that China was seeking to use what it was learning from the calls - how Trump thought, what arguments tend to sway him and to whom he was inclined to listen - to keep a trade war with the USA from escalating further.

Mr Trump recently joked about the lack of mobile security.

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.

The White House is yet to respond to requests for comments regarding the report. 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.
