Huawei Crisis Over?

Looks like the Liar in Chief has walked it back to make it look like he's the great deal maker. Not really surprised by this.

Re: Huawei Crisis Over?

The situation couldn't go on. China now rule the world like it or not. This was inevitable and Trump causes a problem only to then back track for re-election agendas and suddenly Hauwei @Bambino will be the best thing since sliced bread. Everything is carefully planned by the Trump regime with only one aim.

Re: Huawei Crisis Over?

Well that's good to hear...

Perhaps people will stop looking to trade in their Huawei phonees now?

Re: Huawei Crisis Over?

Your take on this is pretty accurate, @jonsie. Add to that the absurd tariffs are hurting the US economy. This needs to get settled. I will never understand how a five time bankrupt, failed businessman turned reality TV show host got elected President. You couldn't make it up.

Re: Huawei Crisis Over?

Thought I heard that "sort of thing" too.

All Trump wants I suppose is for the Chinese to buy more

from the US understandable really. 

Whatever he is  ~ he has the "businessman" mentality (may be a bit more mental than most ok)

threaten taxes import duties etc. then gentle down until you get

what you really want. 

Par for the course to be a bankrupt (see Mr. Green)

 

Everything "staggeringly"in the shops here is made in China ~ stamped on everything

cherished by me and expensive too! 

 

Maybe we  should also be looking at getting a balance with China/trade too

what could we trade ~ I know trade B.J. clown for a chinese diplomat with 1/2 brain would be tons better than we seem to be able to "put up" for PM

And it's going the same way here with BS Johnson, @Bambino... it's all about the lowest common denominator every time, as far as I can tell.rolling eyes

What is the world coming to? I never thought our great countries would see two buffoons in charge at the same time.

Re: Huawei Crisis Over?

About the only thing I agree with Trump on is that China maybe guilty of Intellectual Property theft.

 

This was always likely to be a side effect of cheap contract manufacturing as not everyone is honest and if you are sending schematics to a third party and saying build this as cheaply as you can someone is going to say 'we can build our own version of this and earn a good margin'

 

In the West we have robust IP protection laws but of course China won't really give a stuff about these as the Communist Party just wants to stay in power and to do that it needs to keep the revenue rolling in.

 

There may indeed be some legitimate security concerns but Trump is happy to put these on the back burner if it gets him elected again.

 

I still find it amusing he believes that the Chinese were paying the tariffs.

Current tech used:
Nokia 5 on giffgaff, Core i7 9700F PC with Win 10 Pro. Apple Mac Mini late 2014 with Core i5 running 10.15
Home Internet Connection: Zen Internet Fibre To The Premises Full Fibre 2 76 Mbps Down/18 Mbps up (upgraded for homeworking),
I don't work for O2 but have an interest in networks (including mobile) and IT (which is how I earn my living)

Looking over their shoulders into the opposition camps and well, lets just say there isn't much hope for future leadership coming through.
