I joined BBC outlets on Thursday to discuss Donald Trump’s “national emergency”, aimed at China’s leading technology company Huawei amid the Trump trade war with Beijing.

Discussions put the concern of US agencies over Huawei, with claims of technology theft and busting of US sanctions on Iran, in the context of Trump’s escalating tariffs and pressure on China to give way to American conditions in a trade agreement.
