    When Toyota was beating US cars in the late 1970s, US politicians organize Japan-bashing press conference where Japanese cars are smashed using US baseball bats. now that Huawei is beating US technology, they're getting the same bashing from the US government.

    US government agencies aren't able to hack into Huawei's device. That is one of the reasons why they want to ban it. It's not that US is worried about Huawei spying on US citizens but rather worried about them not being able to spy on American people.

    To CNBC, it seems all the comments here are pro Huawei. The US has always been fishy all these years. Maybe because China is going to take over as the superpower? Or another company is behind US demolishing Huawei? But you can't stop us using Huawei quality products. They are really in the game.

    whatever things that U.S cannot control is illegal. "Part" of the Huawei successes is down to their multi billion research commitment.
