Yes if onePlus ever becomes a giant they will do the same. If you only have a tiny share of the market then they don't care. OnePlus is not a threat to the US yet...

Bye bye Google Android... Most Android OEMs are Chinese and they are now forced to build a new OS. Only big one left is Samsung which has not been very committed with current Android and google apps.

You should read about current state of rare earths...China is the owner of the 80% of the global production.

thats because chinas trade with the us is free in exportation but taxed heavily importation. This is why chinas products are very cheap and sjilping costs are close to non while the us is like 20 to 100 usd to ship it outside the country.

the u.s. government needs to play their cards right, or else things could backfire and they could get TRUMPed
