NY Times reports “Trump Administration Could Blacklist Chinese Surveillance Technology Firm”

If so it’ll inflame trade tneions once again.

Says the NYT, citing unnamed ‘people familiar with the matter’:
  • Trump administration considering limits to a Chinese video surveillance giant’s ability to buy American technology
  • would effectively place the company, Hikvision, on a United States blacklist
  • would mark the first time the Trump administration punished a Chinese company for its role in the surveillance and mass detention of Uighurs, a mostly Muslim ethnic minority.
