          The US will ultimately be seen to be a bad place to do business. Non US manufacturers will go their own way, the US will be in one bubble and everyone else will be in another.

            I am not sure, but i think that they could just create a new company ( which might be equally as hard) and sell their phones via it

                This is going to affect US companies as well in the long run, as manufacturers around the world will become cautious doing business with U.S Companies in future as they lose trust and fear the same can be happened with anyone anytime. So chances are there the world will now turn towards self dependence in all technologies.

                      Trump: Huawei is spying on us.
                      Facebook: **Sweating** yeah they shouldn’t do that.
                      Google: heh...

                        China's rise of economy helps U.S. quick recovery since 2009's Wall Street meltdown; they bought a lot of U.S. goods and paid a lot of U.S. patents. Trump lied and slandered Chinese government as thief, just because a few lazy researchers copied U.S.'s just like any other nations does. HuaWei owns many U.S. patents, which are difficult to get, and several U.S. companies borrow these patents. Now HuaWei ask them to pay royalties.

                                                    the best thing for them to do is innovate a new tech product that is nothing like phones or computers, something we can't imagine. Or maybe if they don't want to do that, just move to a new industry. I don't think Huawei will go bankrupt at all because they are a Chinese company and the Chinese are very smart imo. They most likely have a robust backup plan or they can come up with a great one now.

                                                          Huawei may be the only company that not only treated unfairly by the Chinese government, but also unfairly treated by the US government. The most funny thing is that, use opposite reason, one is because it is not a Chinese state-owned enterprise (a private enterprise in the market), and the other is because it is a Chinese enterprise ( state-owned enterprise or even a military enterprise or spy enterprise)..

What real threat is this company to the bottom line. This goes back to the 70s when americans were shunning american made cars for better made foreign cars. If the product is better and cheaper then why not buy it??? I dont care too much for the terms "american made" or "owned by this ethnic group so buy here only" wtf... I work hard for my money and I pay for what I want!!! I have a android phone and my wife th iphone. I prefer the android cause of the ease for my usage. Im not a fan boy but either phone I have been able to use. The Huawei phones are interesting and I have no knowlegde of how they work but this like you say takes it off the table as an option!!!

Been involved in over 90% of every single war fought, post the second world war? Construct and fund 800 military bases around the world? Fund, create and arm numerous rebel groups to overthrow foreign government entities, only to have said rebel groups turn into full-fledged terrorist organisations, hell-bent on the complete and utter annihilation of humanity?
