How much US kit does China buy?
I suppose the Chinese government will now stop buying Cisco and Arista kit, that should really teach Trump a lesson.

Both my grandparents came to the UK as refugees during WW2, both had very strong accents until the day they died. In fact, one girlfriend said my grandad sounded like Count Dracula :)
Anyhow, I never heard either of them complain about being singled out due to being 'foreigners' and the NHS never asked them to prove their entitlement to treatment as they both slowly died of degenerative diseases.
I'm not sure if the newer generation of immigrants expectations are different, but my grandparents loved their 50+ years in the UK and never wanted to return to their respective countries (Latvia & Switzerland).
Like how BT doesn't monitor my phone calls and remove nasty words, I thought social networks were operating under the same laws. Because, if they remove offensive material, does that mean that everything which remains is ok by FaceBook & Twitter standards? What if I disagree with what they consider to be ok? Can I go to court and sue the companies rather than the individual who posted the material I find offensive? I think Mark Zuckerburg has more dollars to squeeze than some 13-year-old internet troll.
I can see the point of doing this as:
Schools Cost = £££
NHS Cost = £££
If the state is just handing these services out for free to those who should & could be paying, how is that fair? Not very progressive for those poorer members of British society to be having their allocation of state resources decreased by those with no entitlement.
Unless we believe in the magic money tree whereby everyone can have everything because supply and demand don't really exist in the socialist mind set.
