Government now telling me what I can or can't buy?
The government banning the imports of products from Huawei is one thing, but to force to business to remove all traces of Huawei equipment is quite another. I don't think the government should be allowed to tell you, who you can or can't buy goods and services from in an open market. The federal government should have control over what suppliers federal agencies use, but to apply the same to state, local governments, not to mention businesses is over reaching. While I agree that there is the potential for the Chinese government to leverage Huawei to preform espionage activities in some cases, wide scale infiltration is pretty far fetched, with packet tracers like Wireshark, it be pretty easy to see if packets were being routed to unexpected destinations. If this is allowed to proceed unchallenged, I fear in the future what bans would be enacted. If a President with huge conflicts of interest financially isn't the cause for alarm, then what's next, a Intel CEO as the next President banning the sale of all AMD products? A coke pro President banning Pepsi? Where does it stop?
