Sasse Statement on Huawei

January 26, 2021

US Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, issued the following statement after President Biden’s nominee for Commerce Secretary, Gina Raimondo, declined to commit to keeping Huawei on the Commerce Department’s entity list. 

“This is ridiculous: Huawei didn’t change because America has a new President. Huawei is still the Chinese Communist Party’s tech puppet and a serious threat to national security. Tough talk on China is empty if you let Huawei out of the box.”
