Free Market is the freedom to control the market, if we can't control it then we'll break it. When Huawei became the world leader in some categories of telecoms equipment they have sanctions slapped on them. When TikTok became the first China owned net property to achieve widespread international usage it had sanctions slapped on them. As the China's economy moves ever closer to eclipsing the US' more and more sanctions are thrown at it.

And as everyone here knows (fool or not) the only reason for the ban on Huawei's equipment is that having them installed will make the Five Eyes ability to spy on their own citizens more difficult.
