Nothing to brag about President Chump!

Donald Trump has claimed he forced Boris Johnson to change his stance on allowing Chinese telecoms firm Huawei access to Britain’s 5G network.

The US President said he had a ‘big and tough talk’ with the Prime Minister, and threatened to stop doing business with Britain if he went ahead with his plan.

He said this forced Mr Johnson to change his mind and ‘terminate’ the deal with the Chinese firm. The President, in an interview with Fox News yesterday, boasted: ‘The UK, they were set to buy the Huawei system.

Huawei decision 'may delay 5G rollout by three years and cost UK £7bn' The Guardian

I think and hope this is no more than a play for time with the Chump losing the next election and the the Chinese role in our 5G being reinstated.

This is nearer to the truth of the matter:

Huawei denies the firm - which Washington calls an agent of the Chinese Communist state - spies for China.

Instead, the phone company claims the US has issued a ban on the firm because it wants to frustrate its growth as no American company could offer the same range of technology at a competitive price.

What does it matter if Huawei is spying on us, isn't everybody spying on everybody else.
The Chump is the biggest threat in the world today. given another four years when he has nothing to lose we had better hope there is a God to protect us from this mad man.

I hope Johnson realizes we didn't vote to leave the EU to become a lackey of the U.S.
