Chinese diplomat tweets that Huawei ‘has cut Apple into pieces’ – from his Apple iPhone

“China has reacted with uncharacteristic fury to what it deems a concerted U.S. attack on its national champions — and even its way of life,” Edwin Chan reports for Bloomberg. “But one diplomat showed a touch of humor as he jumped to Huawei Technologies Co.’s defense.”

“Zhao Lijian, deputy chief of mission at the Chinese embassy in Islamabad, tweeted a picture Tuesday of a carved-up apple,” Chan reports. “‘It has been just revealed why @realDonaldTrump hated a private company from China so much,’ he joked. ‘Look at the logo of Huawei. It has cut APPLE into pieces…'”

  1. I love that the chinese are tortured by this. I hope trump bumps the tariffs up to 50%. 100% might be better. Still won’t make up from their stolen IP. But let the wannabe’s suffer what they deserve.

      1. You don’t seem to understand how ‘aspirational’ products are pursued by the Chinese people.

        If Apple’s iPhone is no longer freely available, in country, in China, do you honestly think that the Chinese black market for ‘real’ iPhones won’t explode? It’s not about ‘sales’ as much as it is ‘desirability’ and status to the Chinese.

        Huawei in the US? Not so much…

    1. why would chinese torture by this? Torture means a police lieutenant in the US telling a woman during a traffic stop that police “only kill black people.” That’s psychological Torture.

      There are already many alternatives to Google Maps. Huawei gets put in a situation where it can develop its own OS further and release phones which don’t have those Google apps on them. Chinese are optimistic about this and i love that because i don’t want American government tracking my phone’s IP.

      Please bumps the tariffs up to 200%. 100% is never enough.
      I love Trump’s puppet let the ego take over their life because you can’t escape from karma.

  2. I’m just sick of this entire Chinese tariff crap. Apple and Apple shareholders become the biggest losers any way you slice it. Apple has no other country to help replace China iPhone sales. It’s no laughing matter.

    1. I think your argument also applies to other products (i.e. soybeans for american farmers) given the size of the Chinese economy, which means that fighting China is getting more complicated…

      1. Don’t worry. “Gina has great respect for Donald Trump and Donald Trump’s — ah brain.”

        (In case you don’t know who said that, it was Trump.)
