Today President Trump has issued a national emergency over threats against American technology. A ban is expected to follow that will stop U.S. companies from doing business with Chinese company Huawei.

In a statement, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders wrote that the administration will “protect America from foreign adversaries who are actively and increasingly creating and exploiting vulnerabilities in information and communications technology infrastructure and services in the United States.”

    The effects of the crusade of Donald Trump, US president, against Huawei began to show over the weekend. Google suspended the Chinese giant’s access to part of the Android operating system. On Monday (20), more US companies including Qualcomm and Intel cut ties with Huawei to comply with the decision of the US government.

    Note to Trump:

    Pearl Harbour was a National Emergency, throwing a tantrum because nobody wants to build your wall is not.
    9/11 was a National Emergency, China not kissing your ring when you demand it is not.
    The National Emergency is not a toy. Stop using it as a sop whenever you don’t get your way.

    Yeah, well I declare a national emergency because Trump. 🤡
    So, if the USA can’t compete, we ban and lie? Huawei makes more phones than Apple short of only Samsung; serves 45 out of 50 of world’s telecom co.s and obviously leads in 5G so what’s a Liar In Chief supposed to do? Lie about “cyber security” without a SHRED of evidence. If anyone thinks Huawei or China in general are going to “blink” first in this trumped (ahem) up trade war – uhhh, I’m going with the country that’s 4000 years old – not the few hundred year old screwed up capitalist fake democracy (where the majority doesn’t equal victory in elections) here in U.S. To paraphrase the Chinese “insult/warning” : May we (you) live in interesting times.

      A lot of times I disagree with your posts. But I gotta say, this time you’re spot on.
      A clueless spoiled man-child, surrounded by toadies and yes men.
      This will not end well.
