Trump’s latest explanation for the Huawei ban is unacceptably bad

Last week, the US government took extreme unprecedented action against Huawei and blocked it from all US partners who had a long – term risk of rivalry between the United States and China. However, the effect of the order is clear, but the reason is not clear yet.

According to the first enforcement order, there is an official explanation that Huawei hardware charges the United States on espionage charges. "Foreigners are increasingly creating and attacking the vulnerabilities of information and communication technologies and services, and the" unrestricted acquisition or use "of hardware created by foreign enemies exacerbates such vulnerabilities.

Restricting Huawei's role in network infrastructures is a convincing example: many bureaucrats are made in such a situation, but they do not understand the exported hardware. Corning Glass or Micron Flash Memory Why is not Huawei selling in the European market because Huawei does not sell phones in the US So the issue of infrastructure security is of little significance and the problem is that China is in fact intellectual property infringement and trade secrets If you have a history of confidentiality, Leno The same logic can be applied to Chinese companies such as vo and dronemaker DJI, and it can have catastrophic consequences for those companies and the industry as a whole.

It all comes down to the growing trade war that takes place in an increasingly diplomatic course Trump has stepped up import tariffs on China to pressure Chinese leaders to pressure the negotiating table for more than a year, as China has retaliated by its tariffs and tensions have increased over several summits. It is easy to see the measures on Huawei.It has pressured the Chinese economy to extract concessions under the road.But if it is true, justifying national security will be dishonest and diplomatically counterproductive, and if a real security threat occurs, Permanently trusting

Thursday afternoon, media after the incident with the agricultural group When his reporter asked Trump about the move to Huawei, his answer became a problem (video footage is here, It takes about 41 minutes if you want to see.)

TRUMP: Huawei is very dangerous. When you look at it from a military point of view, you saw that they did it from a security perspective. It is very dangerous. Therefore, there is a possibility that Huawei will be included in some kinds of trade negotiations. If we have a deal, we can imagine that Huawei is likely to be part of a trade deal.

How does it look?

TRUMP: It would be very good for us.

REPORTER: But how do you design Huawei parts?

Oh. We are very concerned about Huawei in terms of security.

Trump makes two claims. First, there were restrictions on Huawei because the company was a security threat. Second, restrictions on Huawei could potentially be lifted as part of the trade negotiations.

These two claims are incompatible. In other words, it only makes sense if the security threat is a bluff. Security threats can not be negotiated as part of trade negotiations. Because of the simple reason that China can not promise to stop spying. Regardless of Trump's signature, the spying agencies in China will continue to find valuable information in the United States. If Huawei is a threat ahead of the negotiations, then there will be a lot of threats.

Of course Huawei is not really a security threat, and Trump has used it as an excuse to expand the trade war. It will get worse. The national security world is based on confidential information and often has to perform life and death for reasons that can not be publicly disclosed. In that case, the President and other government leaders can speak only part of the story, and others need public confidence that there is a concern about national security to hide the rest. In the last few years, there has been a good reason for such trust, but functional information services are important. Repeating enormous regulations through trade negotiations will be fatal to its credibility, and trust in the agency is a major reason for Huawei to think that it is a threat first.

Administrative orders were enacted. It is truly plausible that the threat described in this order actually occurred. Trump briefly says that the company may not participate in a wider range of transactions. But whatever the truth is, it is the president's duty to justify his actions to the people and to present such measures to Huawei as part of a broader plan for the benefit of the state. Trump's enforcement orders were not confined to Huawei, but were causing tremendous confusion and concern for US and global users. He has to explain honestly why he did this. So far they have not got anything.
