Osaka’s G20 summit was the setting of yet another display of Trump’s two-steps-backward-one-step-forward “Art of the Deal” tactics…
After branding Huawei Technologies a risk to national security and putting the Chinese telecom giant on its do-not-do-business-with list in May, the US President announced that American firms would be allowed to sell non-security sensitive equipment again if China agrees to buy more agricultural products to reduce the US trade deficit with the Middle Kingdom.
Soybeans for tech, huh… It is starting to look increasingly like Huawei’s existential threat to US national security was relative after all… and that the argument may well be just another illustration of Trump’s overkill antics.
