Huawei, one of the largest smartphone brands and producers in the world, has been going through a rough time ever since Google pulled their Android license. However, now President Trump is saying that there could be a trade deal between the U.S. and China, and it could involve the “very dangerous” Huawei.
The official quote from Trump was “If we made a deal, I could imagine Huawei being possibly included in some form or some part of it.” That’s an interesting statement, particularly because not only has the U.S. has accused Huawei of spying for the Chinese government, but Trump himself has called them “very dangerous”:
Trump said that “you look at what [Huawei has] done from a security standpoint, a military standpoint. Very dangerous,” according to a report from the BBC.
Huawei has denied these claims multiple times, and there has been no evidence that Huawei has been delivering information to the Chinese government.
We don’t know what will happen just yet, but so long as a deal happens, and there is no evidence that Huawei has been spying for the Chinese, Huawei might just end up getting its Android license back.
Of course, Huawei will likely still be working on its own operating system to prevent something like this from happening again.
