US President Donald Trump not only walked back the HUAWEI ban, he now says that it’s “no great national emergency problem“.
No, it’s not an April Fool joke, although US President Trump seems to behave like it’s all a big fucking joke.
Here is the latest twist in the 4 year comedy-horror show that is the Trump Presidency.
Trump In May : HUAWEI Is A National Security Threat
On 15 May 2019, President Trump signed an executive order barring US companies from using telecommunications equipment from sources that are “national security threats“.
He then had the US Commerce Department add HUAWEI to the Entity List of US national security threats, basically labelling HUAWEI as a national security threat.
That barred American companies, or companies using “significant American technology”, from selling their services or products to HUAWEI.
Trump In June : No Great National Emergency Problem
Less than 1.5 months after declaring HUAWEI a national security threat to the United States, Donald Trump not only walked back his HUAWEI ban, he contradicted his earlier reason for the ban!
According to CNN, he said that after his meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping on 29 June 2019, “he would allow Huawei to once again buy US products“.
US companies can sell their equipment to Huawei… there’s no great national emergency problem. – US President Donald Trump
CNN also pointed out that :
He said he “agreed easily” in his meeting with Xi to continue allowing US companies to do business with the telecom giant.
The Donald Is A Thoroughly Confused Idiot
Seriously? Is HUAWEI a national security threat to the United States or not?
If HUAWEI is a genuine national security threat, then it cannot be part of any trade bargain on the sidelines of the G20 summit.
But Trump has now officially lifted the HUAWEI ban and announced that there will be NO NEW TARIFFS, all without an official trade deal, which is very perplexing.
Does he know what he’s doing? Or is he just making stuff up on the spur of the moment?
One thing is for sure – The Donald is a thoroughly confused idiot.
The Damage Caused By The Trump Ban On HUAWEI
The HUAWEI Trump ban immediately forced many companies or organisations to immediately suspend business with HUAWEI, including :[adrotate group=”2″]
- SD Association
- WiFi Alliance
- Bluetooth SIG
- Futurewei, HUAWEI’s own R&D arm in the US
It led to some customer support woes for HUAWEI, some embarrassing reversals (BT, WiFi, SD, IEEE, FedEx), and some interesting ideas (Windows on ARM, rare earths) to circumvent or beat the ban…
Is HUAWEI Safe From Another Ban?
As if he’s trying to close the barn door after the horses have bolted, Trump hinted that HUAWEI isn’t 100% safe from his wrath.
“We mentioned Huawei,” Trump said of his talks with President Xi Jinping of China earlier Saturday. “We’ll have to save that for the very end.”
In other words, HUAWEI just scored a welcomed reprieve, but Trump will likely demand concessions during the next trade talks, or he could possibly initiate another ban…
