Trump's acting budget chief seeks delay on Huawei ban

Source: Washington Post

The acting director of the White House Office of Management and Budget is seeking a two-year delay of a ban prohibiting companies that do business with Chinese telecom giant Huawei from providing services to the U.S. government.

In a letter to Vice President Pence and nine members of Congress, the office’s acting director Russell T. Vought said the delay would give companies more time to comply with the ban, which is set to take effect in one year and one month.

If the delay is approved, the ban would take effect in three years and one month.

“The Administration believes, based on feedback from impacted stakeholders, that this additional preparatory work will better ensure the effective implementation of the prohibition without compromising desired security objectives,” Vought said in the letter.

2. Who is getting bribed or has a personal financial stake/conflict of interest?

I'm not saying the Huawei policy originally announced by the Trump admin is the right angle to take, but any time the Trump administration adopts a new position everyone's first question should be "who is getting paid, and where's the money coming from?" even when it is a reversal of a previous position... heck, especially if it is a reversal of a prior position, that is how extortion rackets work!

5. And the sanctions enacted by Congress on Russia were enacted either. Remember also that...

one of rump's children has businesses in China, another gross conflict of interest by rump's ilk.
