When the U.S. Trump Administration’s recently attempted to slam the door on Huawei, China’s leading telecommunication and technology loaded company, he and his China advisors broke the heretofore gold standard in international collaboration; and that has been the world’s semiconductor industry.

United States stretches reason past the breaking point as it applies pressure to the company. Britain is adopting the technology anyway, while Meng Wanzhou’s rights continue to be violated in Canada.

US global calls to ban Huawei are falling flat. Even countries that recognized Huawei’s security vulnerabilities would not want to politicize what is supposed to be a technical or business judgment.

Concerns are rising in Washington over the Chinese app TikTok, a video-making social media platform whose popularity has boomed in the U.S. in 2019. With concerns that the app is gathering and sharing the data of American users, TikTok might be yet another casualty in the U.S.’ war on Chinese tech companies.

While Huawei may present a genuine security risk to the United States and the world, there are big problems with the current case against the telecommunications giant, and banning all forms of commerce is not the way forward.

In the current China-US trade war, some see an analogy to the Japan-US trade dispute over semiconductors in the 1980s. But past US success does not augur victory in the present conflict over 5G tech—today’s China is far more capable and innovative than 1980s Japan.

Trump’s idiosyncratic “art of the deal” apparently means putting extreme pressure on your negotiating partner to force them to surrender — but the US approach is based on faulty Trumpian economic assumptions and a misread of China’s growth history, and will only backfire.

The China-US trade war has turned into a “tech war,” with the US aiming to block Huawei from building global 5G networks. Proposals from the recent Prague conference reflect US efforts to reassert its tech dominance by getting allies to follow its lead. But with Trump’s “America First” attitude undermining the moral basis of American leadership, and US innovation lagging, protectionist bullying will not provide a firm foundation for hegemony.

Trump’s attacks on Huawei open the door to the long-term “decoupling” of Chinese and US cyberspace. Will this separation of the two countries’ tech industries achieve US goals? Or will it introduce political meddling into the previously free and open environmental of innovation in America’s digital economy, while reducing global trust in US tech giants?
