Hello. Has THE USA PATRIOT Act been cancelled?

It hasn't?

Because if that's the case then the USG has full access, on demand, to the guts of any commercial networking hardware.

So any complaint about "Huawei has to co-operate with the Chinese government" is exactly the situation a US company has with the USG.
