BUSINESS/CHINA/NATIONAL SECURITY/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “The reclusive founder of Huawei has denied allegations that his telecoms company spies for the Chinese government. Ren Zhengfei also praised President Donald Trump as a ‘great president,’ shrugging off allegations by Washington that Huawei is a threat to US national security. Speaking to foreign media for the first time in three years, Ren, 74, said he loved China and supported the Communist Party but had never been asked to share ‘improper information’ about Huawei’s partners…US government officials say Beijing could use Huawei equipment to snoop on Americans. The company has also been prevented from supplying next-generation 5G equipment to Australia and New Zealand. The company has attracted even greater scrutiny following the arrest of its chief financial officer, Ren’s daughter Meng Wanzhou, last month in Canada.”
