"Seeing this report, I feel there are those in America who are working all-out to win the Oscar for best screenplay", the spokeswoman said at a foreign ministry briefing in Beijing on Thursday. The report claims Trump has refused to hand over the iPhone, despite security concerns, and his use of the handset means the Chinese government can listen to his most intimate conversations.
