President Donald Trump pushed back on Thursday against a New York Times report that said intelligence officials believe Russia and China are listening to phone calls he makes using his three personal iPhones.

Trump uses the iPhones to call friends, according to the report, and aides have warned him that the calls on the phone are not secure.

“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!” the president wrote.

However—as was spotted by people on Twitter—it appears the president refuted a story about him using iPhones by tweeting using an iPhone, as shown on TweetDeck.

The Times reported that China, in particular, has listened to the president’s phone calls and have tried to use the information they hear to try and influence the president by lobbying people he speaks with.

The fact that Trump blasted a report about him using his iPhone by tweeting from an iPhone caught the eye of people on Twitter.
