The US officials came to know from the people in foreign governments about the diverting communications from foreign officials which China and Russia are listening to the calls. Nonetheless, the White House has not yet responded to the requests to comment on this matter.
China possesses a sophisticated approach towards the diverted calls and is seeking to use them in order to determine what Trump thinks, whom he is listening to and what is best to sway him, the Times reported, citing the officials.
While possessing a sophisticated approach headed for the intercepted calls, China is keen to use the information for determining Trump’s thought process and how they can use this in the intense trade war.
