And Huawei domination of the media continues – the existing war between the Chinese company and the U.S government with Donald Trump in command who seems willing to continue on his usual rigid line.
Yesterday, during a meeting at the White House, the American President made a statement on the subject again, defining the Chinese giant in this way:
“Huawei is something very dangerous. Look what they did from a security and military point of view”.
However, at the same time Trump does not exempt himself from something else, he mentions a pact, a broader trade agreement that would involve the United States and China, reflecting accordingly on the Huawei case:
â€œIf we made a deal, I could imagine Huawei being possibly included in some form or some part of itâ€.

The remarks come on the heels of the U.S. increasing tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese products from 10% to 25%, with China retaliating by taxing U.S. goods worth $60 billion. Formal discussions between the two countries have stalled after talks ended without a deal on May 10.
Just as some of us has speculated, Huawei is essentially being used as leverage in the trade deal between the two countries.
Weâ€™ll have to wait and see how this plays out, but it doesnâ€™t look like either party is close to a resolution.
