Trump suggests using Huawei as a bargaining chip in US-China trade deal

US President Donald Trump has raised the possibility of easing restrictions on Huawei as part of a broader trade deal with Beijing, despite labeling the Chinese telecommunications giant "very dangerous."

The comments, which appear to run counter to Washington's hardline policy on Huawei, come just a week after the US Department of Commerce placed the company on a trade blacklist, effectively barring it from conducting business with US companies.
"Huawei is something that's very dangerous" from a security standpoint, Trump told reporters Thursday. But then he floated the idea of using the Chinese tech firm as leverage in the ongoing trade negotiations with China.
