Trump gets closer to banning Huawei from U.S. territories

Huawei was supposed to be banned from U.S. territories in late 2018, but the trade negotiations between the U.S. and China delayed the process a few times. Now that both countries are exchanging blows with increased trade tariffs, president Trump could finally pull the trigger on the Huawei ban. Meanwhile some allied nations are still willing to work with Huawei for 5G network implementation, and the U.S. is not happy.

The U.S. has been threatening to ban Huawei from its territories for more than a year now, and it looks like Trump is finally ready to sign the executive order that will facilitate said ban. Due to the ongoing trade negotiations between the U.S. and China, the bans have already been postponed a few times, but now that the tensions are escalating with raised tariffs on each side, president Trump is strongly considering getting back at the Chinese government with a permanent Huawei ban.

Reuters notes that the executive order enabling the ban would invoke the International Emergency Economic Powers Act that gives the president the authority to regulate commercial activities in response to a national emergency that threatens the United States. The threat in question is posed by Huawei’s telecommunications devices, which are believed to act as spying equipment for the Chinese government, even though Huawei already denied these allegations.

Last week, the Federal Communications Commission voted to deny China Mobile Ltd.’s bid to provide telecommunication services on U.S. territories and is now considering to do the same for China Unicom and China Telecom Corp. Most U.S. wireless network provides are not collaborating with Huawei or ZTE anymore, but small rural carriers that now want to implement the 5G standard are still enticed to use the more affordable Chinese switches.

Speaking of 5G networks, the U.S. is concerned that some allied countries are still collaborating with Huawei in order to deploy the new standard, so the U.S. senate is now looking to intensify the anti-Chinese propaganda.
