Senator Marco Rubio: Huawei "Should Not Be In Business In America"

Popcorn Moment: March 14, 2019

In an interview Wednesday with Fox Business Network’s Stuart Varney, Sen. Marco Rubio said that Chinese telecom company Huawei should not be allowed to do business in the United States because of "national security issues."

"This is a national security issue. … There is no trade deal, no matter how good it is, that can make up for their ability to directly steal and spy on America, which is what Huawei’s presence in this country — and frankly not just this country, but in networks all around the world create a problem," Rubio explained. 

"Chinese law says, if we tell you to spy, you have to spy," Rubio added. "In America, we can't even get Apple to crack open an iPhone for the FBI. In China, Huawei has to give the Chinese anything they ask for."

WIBC host Tony Katz explains why this issue should matter to Hoosiers in today's Popcorn Moment.
