Last week, Google suspended business with Huawei following two executive orders President Trump signed last week.

What will that mean for the Chinese telecommunications giant?  https://www.latimes.com/world/la-fg-huawei-supply-chain-software-hardware-backup-20190520-story.html 

Under a Trump administration blacklist, Huawei is down to two choices: It will have to either persuade consumers around the world to use phones with Chinese-made alternatives to Google or scale down and limit itself to the Chinese market.  https://www.latimes.com/politics/la-na-pol-trump-huawei-sanctions-20190516-story.html 

Another limitation brought about by the White House's blacklist? Huawei would be cut off from crucial hardware such as chips, processors and modems from Qualcomm, Intel and other American companies.  http://www.latimes.com/business/la-na-pol-trump-huawei-ban-20190515-story.html 

In China, state and public support for Huawei have grown amid an escalating U.S.-China trade war, including the Trump administration’s recent move to increase tariffs on $200 million in Chinese goods from 10% to 25%.  https://www.latimes.com/politics/la-na-pol-us-china-trade-talks-20190509-story.html
