Huawei founder and chairman Ren Zhengfei gave an interview to Bloomberg talking about the current outlook for the Chinese company. In that conversation the attitude of Donald Trump, President of the United States, was discussed, as well as the possible banning of Apple from China in a way to protest against the situation of Huawei.
The founder of Huawei was humble in this interview. He said the company will really go through difficult times if this US government implementation continues for much longer.
For how long can Huawei survive without parts and software from Qualcomm, Google and others?

Still, it was pointed out that Huawei has the ability to survive. He pointed out that only half of the technologies come from America and that Huawei will eventually be able to cover this loss. Even so, he still pointed out to the journalist that he would do the interview again in 3 years. If Huawei survives he would talk about it. If he did not survive, the journalist would bring a flower for the funeral.
What if China banishes Apple?
In this respect the founder of Huawei was clear. If China took the same decision from Donald Trump and banned Apple, he would be the first to protest this implementation.
He also pointed out that ” Apple is the technology company that leads, if there were no Apple there would be no mobile internet.” If Apple does not exist to show us the world, we would not be able to see the beauty of it. As a student, why should I oppose my teacher? I would never do this. ”
Words that many did not expect. The founder of Huawei has often mentioned being a fan of the products and ecosystem of the Cupertino company. And even though they have surpassed in the number of smartphone sales, the founder believes that Huawei does not yet have the caliber of the apple company cracked.
Huawei says he did not steal anything from the US because he is in front of him
Ren Zhengfei, when questioned that many indicate that Huawei is very successful due to theft of patents and technologies, indicated that this was impossible. This is because Huawei is far ahead of the US in terms of technology. And that they could not steal anything that they have not yet done. He pointed out lastly that this is Donald Trump’s fear. Do not have technology that can match them.
