The folks that are against the trade war/tariffs are the same folks that were responsible for the 2007 crash. Added to that pile are the people that hate Trump so much they would rather see the nation continue to take a beating from the Red Chinese. Pathetic, really....

Tell Huawei to stop putting backdoors in everything they build. Then, maybe in a few years, we'll give them another shot. As it stands we can't trust them in the slightest and they refuse to take responsibility.
 
I find this hilarious because China banned Windows 8 back in 2014 because even they couldn't stomach all of the backdoor spyware in it, so Microsoft developed a China-only version of Windows 10 that remains the only version without data-collection and respects the privacy of its users. You know, like XP.

And now Microsoft is panicking because China just threatened to ban Microsoft again, in retaliation for the US banning Huawei due to backdoors. I'm sure the US would be happy to work with Huawei cooperatively to develop certified backdoor-free hardware in the United States, just as Microsoft worked with Chinese defense company CETC in China to develop a secure Windows 10. But note that Windows 8 was not sold in China again after the ban, so it may take a few years before Huawei hardware could be sold here again.
