    Looks like the trade talk truce is in jeopardy.

    I think Trump and, the hawks in his administration in the likes of Peter Navarro, underestimate the influences and power of the Chinese masses.

    Well, it's not the Chinese masses wrecking this thing; it's that Trump's people keep contradicting each other over what was said and then Trump himself has such low credibility that when he says something, people assume it's false until proven true, so it's the American investors tearin' it apart at the stock market. They're lucky they took Wednesday off for the funeral.

    Jesus, why doesn't the US just sanction Chinese trade with Russia and then put an arrest warrant out for XiJinPing..

    Ask Argentina to arrest Xi and then extradite to USA

    This is honestly F'd up

    Sorry but this is incorrect. Huawei sources its SoCs from US vendors which are in fact restricted from having its chips being sold to places like Iran. This is another ZTE saga but this time the US is much more proactive in taking measures to stop this violation.

    All these events put together could be viewed as US pushing China however it can, while staying seemingly within law and seemingly civil to other Western countries. With the ultimate goal to provoke China to do something that the west might see as unwarranted and irrational. Thus basically provoking China into playing along with the US desire for a cold war. But also to assure more of the Western countries get worried by China's reactions and thus side with US in that new cold war.

    If the US had solid proof of any actual violations, why didn’t they just sanction Huawei like it did ZTE?

    Going after an individual instead of the company, especially close family to the owner, smacks of mafia style scare tactics and fishing expeditions where the US is trying to find dirt rather than because they had any real proof.

    It could also ironically be classed as precisely the kind of corporate espionage the US accuse China of, as she was likely to have sensitive company files on her person at the time of her detection, which would no doubt have also been seized and copied.
