The first on the list would be Google and its operating system Android. This was followed by Intel and Qualcomm but there are actually a lot more US companies that might be included. Here’s what we know so far:

    Its still weird as US Government accused Huawei of Spying but could not present a single evidence. Huawei fought back saying its unrully of them to accused them and ban them without presenting a single evidence. Now they blacklisted them without an evidence.

    I think it is fair enough, China is communist fascism that bans a lot of US and foreign companies that 
    doesn’t fall into the line with their ideologies or political orientations, now it is US to take turn to ban one of theirs.
