Can't Trump see the message he sends to all manufactures in China is don't buy parts from the US, develop it locally in China.
And this is meant to help American business.
The US Department of Commerce has agreed to grant several exemptions to its ban on Huawei, in what appears to be the Chinese kit maker's second reprieve this week. The move means some suppliers will be able to resume sales to Huawei after it was blacklisted over national security concerns earlier in the year. On 15 May the …
From my recall, Phase Alternate Line (PAL) was not licenced to overseas for the manufacture of UK TV's.
So **Insert overseas ethnic group of your choice**, got hold of a few (presumably different manufacturers) sets & set about reverse engineering them successfully. Causing a flood of cheaper imports.
The technology was released but by then the damage had been done to the UK TV manufacturing industry.

In fact PAL was German, the rights being owned by Telefunken, and was used in many places around the world. Hitachi used pure PAL in their smaller screen TVs, but Sony, not wanting to pay the royalty to Telefunken converted the PAL signal to a form of NTSC and then decoded that! Hence the HUE control on all earlier 70's Sony colour TVs.
This is the push that Huawei needed to reduce their reliance on US businesses in their products down to zero, and I suspect other foreign telecoms manufacturers will be watching before considering whether they could make the same leap.
The reviews of the new Huawei Mate 30 Pro have praised the hardware, however the lack of Google Play services is the killer if you're not in China. Again, if Huawei can figure out how to get a high percentage of play store apps to load (perhaps by curating an alternative app store), then other phone makers may follow suit.
Trump's plan to help US businesses only works while the non-US companies haven't developed a better solution.
Huawei are agressively targetting developers of apps with over 100k downloads on Play to publish on the Huawei app store and have been for about 6 months. Depending on an apps reliance on Google's backend for in-app purchases and ads it can be non-trivial to move to another store but in time they could gain a decent percentage of the top apps.
