Meanwhile, the U.S. Trade Representative's office has begun the process for enacting 25 percent on another $300 billion of Chinese imports.
At the same time, he said he would be against Beijing's possible move to ban the US' Apple Corporation from the Chinese market in retaliation. Huawei has made it clear that their preference would be for a settlement of trade hostilities between United States of America and China which will likely also resolve their own issues with the U.S. government.
Huawei was dealt a blow last week with Google's decision to partially cut off Huawei devices from its Android OS following a U.S. order banning the sale or transfer of American technology to the firm.
However, Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei has disclosed in an interview with Bloomberg that he would protest a Chinese boycott against Apple, even referring to the Cupertino-based organization as his "teacher".
"U.K. and Japanese companies have followed suit in delaying the launch of Huawei's 5G smartphones, which could help boost the sales of Samsung and LG Electronics, two of a few 5G handset makers with ready-to-market products - at least in the short term", the statement added. "First of all, this will not happen".
"That depends on how fast our repairmen are able to fix the plane", Ren said.
Ren went on to say that if Trump calls him, "I will ignore him, then to whom can he negotiate with?" Why do students have to object to the teacher? "No matter what materials they use, be it metal, cloth or paper, the aim is to keep the plane in the sky".
Still, Trump predicted a "very good deal with China sometime into the future because I don't believe that China can continue to pay these really hundreds of billions of dollars in tariffs".
China today said any U.S. trade talks must be based on "mutual respect" and equality after President Donald Trump said there was a good chance of clinching a deal.
