7. Huawei telecom has LONG been under investigation for breaking

American laws against exporting U.S.-originating technology to certain countries, such as Cuba, Iran, Sudan and Syria. Possibly also NK now. It didn't start with Trump. But this is definitely part of Trump's current aggression against Iran and China. He understands almost nothing about the many issues involved, but he's not as disconnected from reality as usual in believing China's still stealing U.S. technology and endangering our national security.

In addition to this, though, "Sabrina Meng Wangzhou is also the daughter of Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei - one of China's leading businessmen, an ex-People's Liberation Army officer and an elected member of the 12th National Congress of the Communist Party of China. In other words, Meng is part of China's elite."

NYT: Over the last decade, Huawei has grown into a powerhouse. Founded in 1987 by Ren Zhengfei, a former People’s Liberation Army engineer, it generated over $90 billion in revenue in 2017. Its equipment is the backbone of mobile networks around the world, and its smartphones are popular in Europe and China. That has made it a symbol of China’s technological prowess and evolution from a country that makes cheap but unreliable gadgets to cutting-edge products that can rival the best of Silicon Valley and other Asian technology giants.

Yet Huawei has long faced scrutiny as a security threat in the United States. Washington has expressed concern about using Huawei products, citing spying risk because of the company’s close ties to the Chinese government.

While Huawei has long tried to make inroads into the United States, it has been bedeviled by the security concerns. In January, Huawei’s effort to sell a new line of smartphones in the United States was derailed when AT&T walked away from a deal to distribute the devices.
