Amid a deepening trade war with China, President Trump on Wednesday declared a national emergency to protect U.S. communications networks in a move that gives the federal government broad powers to bar American companies from doing business with certain foreign suppliers including the Chinese firm Huawei.
Trump declared the emergency in the form of an executive order that says foreign adversaries are exploiting vulnerabilities in U.S. telecommunications technology and services. It points to economic and industrial espionage as areas of particular concern.
The President has made it clear that this Administration will do what it takes to keep America safe and prosperous, and to protect America from foreign adversaries who are actively and increasingly creating and exploiting vulnerabilities in information and communications technology infrastructure and services in the United States, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.

Trump is the greatest strategic mastermind in 200years.
No one else can keep us safe
Including scam phone calls/messages. Don’t we have enough scammers in the US not to import them from China? :(
Trump, Apple and Qualcomm have united to fight China
Mr. President .... Please target the downtown government run hackers building in the recent city they moved to please. A half dozen cruisers would be fair
“declared a national emergency “
When will a Leftist judge assert the right to countermand this emergency?
It’s not showing up here just yet, but this is a handy link...
Already today alone we had 6 telemarketers call our house..Unavailable is the WORST, gets through but we dont pick up
I worked for a medical device company
We had a piece of equipment made ONLY in china that we needed, to do some work on the production line.
The software had so many spyware applications and hidden viruses coded that we had to remove that computer from the network and run it stand-alone... with huge warning stickers on it NEVER to connect it to the network.
They are doing this everywhere.
There are people out there who think President Trump is mentally unstable.
I don’t know anything about that. I have never met Donald J. Trump.
But I do know this: This is the sanest thing I have seen in 40 years.
President Trump has just told the Communists that This Capitalist Will Not Sell You the Rope with Which You Will Hang Us.
My new tagline.
Yes. Donald Trump is beyond extraordinary...how lucky we are that he stepped up to the plate!
Praise God (YHVH)!
Yep - and it gave him the FReedom to delay the auto tariffs for a while w/o losing his leverage...hitting Huawei has things roiling.
Now he should sign a bill declaring that companies who go out and data mine your public records and your private records should discontinue the practice as they do in Europe. Type in a name find out everything you need to know at a touch of the button. At least make the criminals work for it but Gathering all the information and posting it out there for everyone to see is a practice that is going to harm people in the short and long-term.
China is probably a key player pushing the propaganda to divide America as well. It wouldn’t surprise me.
