“Huawei represents a national security risk and I don’t think we ought to do anything to make it easier for them to operate and do business here in America or in Europe for that matter. We are talking to them about it as well,” McConnell, R-Ky., told FOX Business’ Maria Bartiromo during an exclusive interview.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told FOX Business in February that the U.S. wouldn’t partner with countries that use its technology.
While McConnell was unsure exactly “how we enforce this,” he does believe Europeans agree that “Huawei is a threat.”
“That’s a good first step and I hope whatever arrangement we ultimately end up with China does not allow Huawei to have that kind of access to our technology,” he said.
Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Thursday rejected the notion that Huawei has held up trade negotiations and said that he is scheduled to speak with his Chinese counterparts today during an interview on CNBC.
