Relationship Between the US and Chinese telecom giant ‘Huawei’ has officially boiled over. The pressures have been mounting for almost a year a half, beginning with cell phone carriers dismantling out of arrangements to provide Huawei’s products and the situation escalated to a full-blown ban and the remarkable revocation of Huawei’s Android license.
All the while, US has sought the extradition of company’s CFO Meng Wanzhou, the daughter of the founder and CEO Ren Zhengfei, from Canada where she was arrested on fraud charges.

The primary source of the controversy, in any case, is the long-held conviction from legislators and the US Intelligence community that Huawei follows up for the benefit of the Chinese government, undermining US national security and posing cybersecurity and privacy risks for American and UK clients. With the legal status cut out of Google’s official Android licensing program, the organization’s future remains in a precarious situation, posing vulnerability about the eventual fate of Chinese organizations in the midst of President Donald Trump’s trade war and raising serious issues about Huawei’s job in the Windows and 5G ecosystems going forward.

[This a full interview of about 46 minutes. The Huawei part is about 41 min in]
[TRUMP: Huawei is something that’s very dangerous. You look at what they’ve done from a security standpoint, from a military standpoint, it’s very dangerous. So it’s possible that Huawei even would be included in some kind of a trade deal. If we made a deal, I could imagine Huawei being possibly included in some form, some part of a trade deal.
REPORTER: How would that look?
TRUMP: It would look very good for us.
REPORTER: But the Huawei part, how would you design that.
TRUMP: Oh it’s too early to say. We’re just very concerned about Huawei from a security standpoint]
US motives behind Huawei ban
The Trump administration temporarily eased up just a bit on its restrictions Monday. But the reprieve was narrow and aimed at a small group of rural American network providers that use Huawei equipment. For Huawei and most American companies, the ban remains firmly in place.
Amidst enraging China-US trade war it seems to be collateral damage. Trump imposed sanctions and banned all productions on US soil. Following the lead Panasonic and many technological giants severed ties with Huawei. China backed up its technological production company by calling US out on such rash actions but Trump administration seems set about the ban it imposed.
Others call it a dirty game in the telecom giants competition.
