Employee-owned business is not uniquely communist. There are plenty of them in the West and are considered better in productivity and performance than nonemployee-owned companies.You can always play definition games: maybe Huawei doesn't satisfy your personal definition of communism. But Huawei's ownership structure is certainly closer to the communist ideal than Boeing is. My point is that whatever Huawei is doing is not purely capitalist: the employees are working for each other, not for some billionaire dictator boss. Whatever Huawei is doing, it works marvelously well -- better than whatever Boeing is doing.
And that is what scares the U.S. billionaires like Trump: if Huawei continues to excel, people will start asking whether billionaires are necessary. This is probably a major reason why Huawei has been singled out for such dirty treatment (like the kidnapping of a company official).
