Trump May Have Discussed Sensitive Intel With Fox News Host Sean Hannity On Unsecured iPhone As Spies Listened: Report
President Donald Trump has reportedly discussing sensitive information on an iPhone with informal advisers, including Fox News host Sean Hannity, who has no experience in government matters, reports NBC News.
The New York Times noted that reported that Chinese and Russian spies have listened to Trump’s personal phone calls on his iPhone, a danger that several aides have warned Trump about.
Trump tweeted that he only uses government phones:
The so-called experts on Trump over at the New York Times wrote a long and boring article on my cellphone usage that is so incorrect I do not have time here to correct it. I only use Government Phones, and have only one seldom used government cell phone. Story is soooo wrong!

However, former White House aide Omarosa Manigault confirmed that Trump always uses his personal phone:
Clearly #45 memory is fading fast… He ALWAYS used his personal iPhone in WH for calls even after being told over and over again about the security risk. He disliked his secure gov issued cell- he said it was slow and “buggy” pic.twitter.com/k3ZruFWGzS
