China Starts New Trade War with “Boycott Apple”

China has urged the U.S. to end the business thwarting for the overseas companies and criticized the U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to sign a national emergency order that asked the American firms to not use foreign-made equipment, showing the possibilities of surveillance fears.

The Washington-Beijing trade war intensifies as the U.S. Government has banned telecom giant Huawei.  It has created new agitation in China and there has been a rise in “Boycott Apple” movement in the country. The report suggests Weibo, which is known as China’s version of Twitter has been overflown with anti-Apple and anti-Trump messages.

The stern policy of the U.S. effectively hampers the business of Chinese telecom giant Huawei. The decision has intensified the conflict in the two economic superpowers and right now they are engaged in a bitter unending trade war. Though the Chinese telecom giant Huawei has said that it is still open to addressing the U.S. security concerns.

This “Boycott Apple” movement has gained hype in China once again. Last year in December, Chinese companies rallied behind the tech giant Apple and offered heavy discounts to the employees to buy Huawei devices to avoid iPhones. The report suggests that the movement started after the confinement of Meng Wanzhou, the Huawei’s Chief Financial Officer in Canada at the demand of American prosecutors.

Last December a Chinese law court restricted the sale and import of the major iPhone models after allowing Qualcomm an injunction against Apple. Apple, after that released minor updates to iOS, to avoid the ban, declaring that the iOS version 12.1.2 includes software changes which are exclusive for China.

More than 20 Chinese companies took to social media to declare that they will increase purchases of other Huawei products.
