Global Tech Companies Shun Huawei After U.S. Ban

Global technology companies are cutting ties with China’s Huawei Technologies Co Ltd after the U.S. government put the world’s largest telecom equipment maker on a trade blacklist, citing national security concerns.The United States has effectively banned its companies from doing business with Huawei, exacerbating an ongoing Sino-U.S. trade war. The ban applies to goods that have 25% or more of U.S.-originated technology or materials, and may affect non-American firms.

I found this, and it's not without sense ... Of course, this is for people who like to develop a variety of theories. Other hand could explain why intelligence agencies are "nervous" about Huawei's global infrastructure. Huawei "may" not know it's being used for intelligence-gathering, but its tech is too pervasive to be neutral ...
