Trump ban on foreign telecom gear targets Huawei

WASHINGTON, D.C.

— The Trump administration made a move to enable a ban on Huawei gear, amid an escalating trade war between the U.S. and China.

According to the New York Times, President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Wednesday to ban U.S. telecom firms from using foreign-made equipment from sources that may pose a risk to national security.

While no nation or company was singled out in the ban, the Commerce Department later added Huawei and its affiliates on a list of firms considered to be undermining American interests.

The listing prevents Huawei from purchasing U.S. parts or technologies without the government's approval.

According to CNN, U.S. officials have openly warned against using gear from Huawei and other Chinese companies, arguing that these tech products could allow China to spy on U.S. communications.

Major mobile phone companies in America are largely unaffected as they don't use Huawei equipment, but the order may be costly for rural wireless carriers who do use Huawei as a cheaper alternative to European brands like Nokia or Ericsson." CNN reports that the executive order would apply to past purchases of telecom gear, though officials didn't say whether the government would help smaller carriers pay to remove or switch out their foreign gear.

No word either on what the punishment would be for those who don't comply.
