Good. See, when Donny does something intelligent, we recognize it.

Will he ban the use of software provided by certain Israeli companies? (See JT article about the WhatsApp flaw.)

Huawei has more than 5,000 US patents. If US tech companies want to stay at the leading edge, they will have to pay Huawei to license this technology. So Huawei makes lots of money in the US anyway. Or will the government allow US tech companies to steel Huawei technology?

American motto "No one else will collect data or spy on our citizens but us" can't have someone else interfering with our police state.

Huawei has more than 5,000 US patents.

The U.S. is fine with patents. The issue is National Security and spyware.

There are a lot more people trying to get IN to the U.S. than out my friend.

The TSA, FBI, CIA, etc-the US has plenty of agencies just waiting and ready to spy on the average American.

Huawei is just a threat to the American dictatorships already in place.

My next phone is a Huawei!

Good? What's the point of 'free markets' then? In that case Apple stores in China should close up shop asap

I agree with Trump's decision.

There's a difference between an individual phone and a telecommunications network. A network is infrastructure that is for all practical purposes public.

Since Trump has taken office the world has become a more dangerous place with an increase in tensions between America and its allies, with NK, with Russia, with Iran, with China. Trump can't even use a computer.

There's only one national emergency in the USA right now, and it ain't China.

And yet he does nothing to sanction Russia for hacking a presidential election.

American companies need the growing Chinese market. Like it or not.

While I understand the concerns of the US government and others this move has just made it much more difficult for American corporations to operate in China.

Can't see much good coming from this in the long run.

So, to me it looks like a short term non strategic action.

Youre either making my point it just trying to sound smart. Ok I'll try again. Telecommunications equipment actually includes phones too. Now do you get it?

What happens when an American ally like the UK installs 5G?

Its simple really. While america was off wreaking middle eastern countries and murdering civilians, other countries were actually getting down to work and plan for the future. That future is here, America's lagging behind by years. And what is the solution? Behave like your run of the mill school yard bully. It's a multipolar world now. The sooner that's accepted, the better for all humanity.

I don't think it's that simple, really.

Wally, this is apples and oranges. I think younmeamt to say that China should boot Apple. Clear writing is key to effective communication.

No worries, Huawei, President Biden will reverse it.

There's only one national emergency in the USA right now, and it ain't China.

And yet he does nothing to sanction Russia for hacking a presidential election.

Damn, Crazy, you're getting raked over the coal for that one, hehe

I'm wondering who will pay for my Huawei support now that I cannot? Or better, who will replace the Huawei equipment we bought 18 months ago?

Perhaps the US should give exactly the same govt protections to patents that China has given to patents by non-Chinese companies there?

Very serious and happened just after China threatened US debt bonds. Stock up people.

Got a link?

The trade war will turn into a full blown war.

This is out right bully, action of a president that cannot really get his job done without treats. Good Americans will not stand for such a president.

Great move.

i credit trump when he gets it right, and this is one time where he’s right. Huawei is run by an ex Chinese military man, and as with all Chinese companies, they have government agents in and overseeing the company. As such it must be considered to be a Chinese state company, and the Chinese state has shown they have zero respect for intellectual property rights, Other countries that pet Huawei companies build their telecom service are basically giving away their people’s privacy to the Chinese government.
