    I loathe Trump and the ground he walks on, but he's right about this. Huawei should have absolutely no presence in the government or in our infrastructure.

      K.Evrgrn I’m just saying, that China refusing to do business would not hamper apples bottom line. They’re a trillion dollar company. You don’t think a number of different Asian countries would love to do business with them. It would strictly be chinas loss.

      K.Evrgrn hahaha you really think apple can’t find another country on the planet to cheaply assemble their phones. They also wouldn’t have to worry about the Chinese stealing their designs. Everyone knows the Chinese can’t create anything, all they do is copy.

      @Uzzie B you do realize that it's the reverse, right? Huawei's first book anything was before the apple redesign, and the p20 and p30 phone models came out before the samsung "a" series, and now, even the note 10 has a similar design. Huawei beat both giants to the foldable phone and made it actually work.

    • Uzzie B

      setsunasamachan most things in China are cheaply made. Look at huawei, no innovative ideas so they steal ideas from other Android and apple products. Even their so called MacBook copy is physically exactly like a MacBook. No innovation or new ideas, just stealing intellectual property. Sad.

    The government never proved Huawei was a security risk. It's shameful that a tech guy would repeat something without wanting, needing or asking for more info. He should have said "the government made claims that have never been proven" and left it at that.

      @Rodger Murphy The US still doesn't have a single 5G phone and very, very limited 5G network. I'll call this a lie because it's what people like you have no idea what you're talking about so you lie.

    • Jamie Vetter
      Jamie Vetter 12 dias atrás

      @Roderick Howard Do you know China is now the biggest buyer of US movies? It's highly likely Chinese people hacked these movies before they were legal. Now, imagine how much those movies changed an entire generation of Chinese hackers. Today, they buy movies or see them in theaters. It's this sort of stuff that changes people and countries. Their young people see what we can do and they want to come here and be like us.

      Btw, every country steals, including the US.

      @Mike Diamondz First, they need to prove someone spied on us using ZTE or Huawei. Since they said both were national security threats one day and then not the next, we know they were lying to us about both. I don't like someone thinking I'm an idiot and I don't like people who have to lie to get power.

    Banning Huawei is a good choice.
    They pay zero tax to the USA yet make billions of dollars off us.
    That's tens of millions of dollars of taxes that could of benefited America in countless ways.
    Things like free healthcare for the poor. A raise in welfare for genuine poor people. A raise is disability payments for people whom can't work.
    Money for free childcare so people with low paid jobs can actually afford to work.
    The list goes on and on.
    At least Apple pay taxes to us.
    I for one totally agree with Trump on this one.
    People searching for corruption are just boring. Get over yourselves.

    Everyone's complaining about Huawei, Google, Verizon etc working with government to spy on people.
    It's not like they're using your information to come rob you or kill you or do anything bad.
    It's literally just data collection for analysis. They use it to determine voting behaviour, political climate, what people do most/least with information etc etc.
    It's completely ok with me.

    The REAL reason huawei is banned again is becos the US does Not have 5G tech. There are 8 companies that have or is in the process of developing 5G. Ericsson and Nokia both in Eroupe. Samsung in Skorea and Huawei, xiaomi, oppo and one other Chinese company. He is the US don't have a competitive 5G plan to compete they will ban huawei to give themselves time to develop 5G. Rather than doing catching up the US has adopted to stop Huawei by using national security as a pathetic excuse again. It's sad cos the US is way behind and they can't accept this fact rather than support fair competition they play dirty and they are good at it cos they have always used it to halt others who are better than them.

  • Peter Lee

    This is kinda off topic but I need to say something about Huawei. I personally hate Huawei. I read a news that 2 Chinese companies stole Samsung's bendable screen technology, and it is not even a surprise. Chinese give so much money to Samsung's worker and steal the technologies they want. As a South Korean, I think these things really need to stop and Chinese government really have to make some law to stop their own people's crime-like acts on business. What you guys are doing is not based on fair competition but is ruining every other country's free market system because of ridiculously high investment from the government itself to your companies. The world cannot beat this. It is cheating. Huawei is related to China's communist party and people don't know how dangerous that really means. In South Korea, we always hear news about those pirates but in US it is so quiet. US citizens really need to know its danger and not just think it is a Trump's one more bad decision. The world need to warn China that they are not a developing country anymore, and to make influence in the world, take some responsibility. Huawei stole tech from Nortel and Cisco by working with Cyber team of China's army. Huawei already used Samsung's technology without license 6 times and accused because of it. Not only with Samsung, but also with African Union, Pakistan, ASIS, and so much more criticisms are going on what Huawei have done so far. Sorry for bad English if I made some mistakes. I hope you guys just know that this is not just a joke. So much things are going on below the ground of ordinary people's view. Please be aware. They are not just innocent asians. This is not just an ideological problem but more like a warning to the China's behavior.
