Trump expected to ban Chinese telecom equipment next week

Reports indicate that President Trump is likely to ban Chinese telecom equipment from US wireless networks by signing an executive order in the current week. The administration allegedly wants to issue the order before Mobile World Congress which runs from February 25 to 28 in Barcelona. The order is expected to have a major impact on Huawei and ZTE even if they are not named specifically.

Spy phones? 5G mind control? Are we standing up to Chinese assimilation? Thank you POTUS!

You can actually find some presentations on YouTube, from companies that help with reverse engineering and auditing chips, showing cases where chips came from the manufacturer with mysterious add-on chips hidden inside, and decapping techniques is often destructive enough to lose the firmware running inside them. So not even the manufacturer of the devices know they have alien chips wired in. It's about time to treat the malicious hardware threat with the seriousness it deserves. I'm in favor of rigorous scrutiny for devices coming from anywhere, not just China. Take some samples from the equipment they're providing, and X-ray, decap the chips to see if they don't have surprises.

If you can’t compete, then ban. Good luck with that.
