United States bans Huawei as "five eyes" reel

  • Donald Trump to issue order effectively blocking Huawei from US

US President Donald Trump signed an executive order declaring a national emergency over "threats against information and communications technology and services" in the US. In January 2018, US carriers shunned Huawei's newly-launched flagship, the Mate 10 Pro.

It's no secret that USA's defense department is having some issues with the Chinese telecommunication giant, Huawei. Huawei's founder and president, Ren Zhengfei, denied the allegations in an interview with "CBS This Morning" in February. Huawei vehemently denies involvement in Chinese spying.

Members of Congress said Trump's order was squarely aimed at Chinese companies like Huawei, which generated $93 billion in revenue a year ago and is seen as a national champion in China. "And we absolutely never install backdoors".

"Despite the fact Huawei has its headquarters in China, we are actually a globally operating company", he said.

The move by Trump is expected to precede a ban on United States firms doing business with the Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei.

The US believes the Chinese government is using Huawei's equipment for espionage.

The photo, taken Tuesday after the attack, shows two black marks near where the East-West Pipeline passes by the facility. The website TankerTrackers.com, whose analysts monitor oil sales on the seas, first reported about the black marks.

The Executive Order follows the United States government leveling a 10-count indictment alleging that Huawei conspired to steal intellectual property from T-Mobile and subsequently obstructed justice, in addition to a separate 13-count indictment against the company and its CFO Meng Wanzhou.

The order, called Securing the Information and Communications Technology and Services Supply Chain, prevents foreign involvement in the nation's carrier networks and comes after rumors that Trump would be banning Huawei this week.

The order's existence in draft form was first reported by The Washington Post last June.

May 15 - President Donald Trump on Wednesday signed an executive order declaring a national emergency and barring USA companies from using telecommunications equipment made by firms posing a national security risk, paving the way for a ban on doing business with China's Huawei Technologies Co.

It could be delayed again, they added.

General counsel Carri Bennet of the Rural Wireless Association has said a ban would cost its 15 affected members at least $800 million to redo their networks to strip out Huawei and ZTE equipment. The US is seeking to extradite her.
