White House adviser says UK’s 5G action won’t hinder trade deal

Adding a fresh breather on British PM Johnson’s Huawei 5G chronicle, On Friday, the 7th of February 2020, the White House Economic Advisor Larry Kudlow said that PM Johnson’s latest decision to allow China’s Huawei Technologies a limited role in developing United Kingdom’s fifth generation network amid an ongoing US sanction would not impact efforts to reach a post-Brexit UK-US trade deal.

In point of fact, in a Friday (February 7th) night interview with the Fox Business Network, while being asked whether a contentious call of PM Johnson to grant Huawei access in to the British next-gen network development could adversely affect a planned UK-US trade deal, White House’s Kudlow was quoted saying, “No, it won’t…..

We will be working with our British cousins on 5G. We think we can work with them and show them options. We’d love to do a free trade agreement. ” As a matter of fact, latest comment from White House economic adviser, Larry Kudlow came forth a day after a Financial Times report had revealed that the US President Donald Trump became “apoplectic” following UK’s call to allow China’s Huawei in to British fifth-generation network development despite years of lobbying efforts from Washington.
