    The U S politicians just don't like competition, they are worried that Huawei will take businesses away from the American companies that why Huawei 's equipment have been banned in America for years. Now, Huawei came out with 5G with its advance technology, faster and superior than its competitors, like Nokia, Erickson and Samsung. Let look back in American government bullied others the past, the first victim was Toshiba of Japanese company, second was Alstorm of French company and now Huawei and ZTE.

    US is only country that stop Chinese aggression , Chinese put my country in a economic ruin through their " Belt & road" initiative. Best way punish China is to avoid Huawei.

    With so many parts and apps not made by the Chinese in these phones, how could it be a spying tool for the Chinese government? Can you come again to explain the logic?

    It's great to have a president that puts US security over financial gain. Neither Obama nor Bush were brave enough to stand up against China. President Clinton outright sold out to China and put our country in this predicament.

    Why are Americans so aggressive for what is “their technology”? Japanese invented mobile phones, WiFi, video camera. Everything you need to watch this video yet they share their knowledge and nobody even knows they invented all this.

    It's only a problem when the USA's relentless spying on the entire world is being jeopardized. When they spy on other countries and their own citizens illegally, it's not a problem right? But the moment another country uses THEIR OWN patents and create leading technology, it's an 'instrument of the authorities used to spy on other countries'. Western double standards and exceptionalism at its finest 🙂

    I still find difficult to understand why did trump reversed his decision from keeping the ban. After this ban; US company's are expected to stop doing business with Huawei for allegations to work with Chinese Government.
    Now, if US bans Huawei; US company's would be obliged to stop doing any business with Huawei.

    Now, if trump wants these US companies to put their country first; how can he expects Huawei being an Chinese company to put US more than while he is a Chinese company..

    I personally wanted trump to keep banning Huawei; only then, these company's show their capabilities in making the Huawei Ark OS better than iOS and Android.

    I am sure that these companies don't want too even give a remote chance for Huawei to become independent of US companies.

    How Coward and disgusting creature trump really is…

    The whole world see clearly that US companies are all controlled by US government. US government and politicians just act like thieves calling other people thief.. how many American companies produce.arms, fight airplanes and worships for US army? US government and politicians just act.like bandits of black society.

    The ban hurts US companies more than it hurts Huawei. Globalization is sponsored by US multinational companies. It is hard to stop not hurting the US giants. Sooner or later Trump will realize that. Besides China holds the rare earth minerals production which is vital to high tech companies.

    Realistically speaking, Android is not the end all even though it's a juggernaut in the mobile world. There are alternatives like Sailfish and in Apple's case it's entire ecosystem from hardware to software, to services. If Apple can exist as a closed source OS, this further cements the rationalisation of there being another Apple in the world. Huawei had the resources to do so. It may not be as successful as pioneering Apple, in the short term, but we have come to realise that they don't play the short game…

    It's a game the WSJ is playing. First off, all real Americans hate Goo.gle and unless you're a woman, black or LBGT… YOU should too. Second, what groups like WSJ refuse to explain is, it's the lack of firmware control. I bought a HTM Android phone on Ebay and it kept sending my data back to China. I reloaded it from scratch, (I thought), but no… the surveillance operations 'software' was burned into the logic board.
