Huawei is a Chinese telecommunications company. It has close ties to the Chinese military and intelligence, making it a national security threat to foreign countries.[1]

The Trump Administration took several actions to protect U.S. national security from Huawei. In February 2020, the US Department of Justice issued a 16-count indictment against the company, for alleged racketeering and conspiracy to steal trade secrets.[2]

Hawei has been sanctioned by the Trump administration for human rights abuses and mass detention of Uyghurs in Xinjiang gulags.[3][4][5] Huawei tested facial recognition AI capable of recognizing ethnicity-specific features to alert government authorities to members of the ethnic group.[6] Huawei previoulsy was also restricted from doing commerce with U.S. companies due to willful violations of sanctions against the Iranian terrorist sponsor state.
