It's really about commercial warfare, and Five Eyes domestic and foreign spying.

US corporations are losing increasing business to cheaper, and even better made, Chinese products, because decades ago, bribed Western politicians betrayed their country, by allowed their corporations to outsource production, thus technology secrets, to China and other seemingly lower financial cost countries.

USA government purchase sanctions, and USA government imperialist coercion to stop some Chinese purchases, is not a adequate solution. The real solution must include accepting that they f'd up, so must force Western corporations to stop outsourcing production to China.., for at least domestic sales, and end availability of any technology secrets in/to China and other commercial competitor countries, including leaks via US universities and research organisations.

In addition USA (shadow government) spy agencies are well known to promote compromised cryptography, requiring back-doors/feeds, or even covertly installing them via intercepted deliveries, and other five eyes countries are probably also involved, for both domestic and foreign spying, but Chinese businesses will not support Western spying, and even add better encryption, which is harder to compromise.
