    This would also explain why almost all electrical goods are always out of stock.

    What the actual F is going on with the Republic? Fascism, is what. God we need that Orange caveman and his psychosis GONE. I never owned a Xiomi but their GTS smartwatch is great. Also, every corporation in Silicon Valley is connected to the military and/or intelligence so this is another dangerous projection by Trump. I mean look at In-Q-Tel!

    Difference is that intel's ties are to their own military, not the enemies.

    As a European Xiaomi owner, will this affect future updates and access to google store apps?

    I really hope you're not from America or Europe, you've been watching too much corporate news.

    Edit: I'm done with this thread.

    They have been in an unconventional war against the west for 30 years, we are only slowly waking up to that reality recently. Their goal is to convince the world it would be better with the brutal human rights abusing no freedom system vs USA. They need to be stopped.

    They have over a hundred million wumao / bots posting propaganda on the free internet, on platforms banned over there. They are using freedom against us.

    They deliberatly destroy targetted industries by operating at a loss... state owned companies can operate at loss for years until the competition is destroyed. Then they buy the failing foreign companies or take over the market and jack the prices back up to what they were before or even more. Look at British steel, EU aluminium tariffs etc...

    They are a destructive parasite

    The only good Xiaomi is a LineageOS flashed Xiaomi. Even so, proceed with caution.

    Nothing. The worst outcome for you is that your phone might not receive updates from Google in the future and you may lose access to the Google Play store.

    Funny thing to criticise him for what is probably the only correct thing he's doing.

    i wish i was, but all this antagonism leads to is jacking up prices and another million lives lost due to a war started by people only looking to make profit.

    there are better ways.

    Don't get how can anyone defend China and CCP here. They are the regime that has concentration camps where the political prisoners are forced to work, have their organs harvested, are reeducated and more and it was going on for decades. China is waging a war with the entire world, most just don't realize it. While you can be critical of Trump and his foreign policies, the dealing with China are one of the great moves he made. After all, we are the ones who invest and subsidize the CCP, give them technology and this needs to stop. We'll se what Biden will do, but I doubt he will be anything but very open to CCP.

    Stop pretending that the USA hasn't done(doesn't do) concentration camps, forced work(prisons) or re-education

    US doesn't have concentration camps, there aren't political prisoners and despite TV and Twitter censoring wrongthink, I still wouldn't call it forced reeducation.

    Anyway, you can be critical of both.
