President Trump declared a national emergency Wednesday over what he called threats to American technology, barring U.S. telecoms from installing foreign-made equipment. The move appears to be aimed at punishing Huawei, the Chinese maker of telecommunications gear and consumer electronics. It’s the latest escalation of the U.S. trade war with China, after Trump followed through last week on a threat to hike tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese imports.
