Huawei is not the risk. China is the risk. It’s not as if Huawei can do whatever it wants, that it can tell the Chinese government to take a running leap.
I find it odd that Israel allows Huawei products to be sold (the same country that once banned apple products because of a supposed security risk), but yet the U.S has an issue with them. I feel like this has more to do with politics than actual security threats.
