It's believed Huawei and ZTE aren't specifically named in the executive order, but the companies would obviously fall under the category of Chinese telecom equipment providers.

Multiple sources speaking with Politico have confirmed that President Trump is ready to issue an executive order that will place a ban on Chinese hardware being using for upgrades of cellular networks.

Huawei has raised suspicions in the west for its close ties to the Chinese government and fears are that the company may be an integral tool of the superpower's worldwide espionage capabilities.

Trump reportedly wants to protect USA 5G networks from state-sponsored Chinese spying.

Oakley then tried to punch McGrady after she criticized the commissioner's behavior, the report stated. Oakley reportedly said she plans to appeal an ethics violation ruling from the commission.

An industry source said there was a "big push" to get the order signed before MWC. There is also no evidence that Huawei's networking equipment has ever been used to spy for the Chinese government.

The speech came just days after a team of U.S. officials toured EU capitals - including Brussels - urging European governments to scrap Huawei technology from their telecom infrastructure plans.

He said that while some countries - including New Zealand, Australia and the USA - had "indeed taken measures to restrict Huawei business activities", some of the restrictions had been "exaggerated or even misinterpreted by the media".

On top of all this, the United States recently uncovered evidence of Huawei trying to commit fraud and intellectual property theft.

Moreover, there is likely to be traffic chaos resulting in road, rail, ferry, air delay to quite an extent. "Gusts of between 50mph and 55mph are expected on Saturday but it will stay dry for most of the day".

USA charges of stealing technology and violating sanctions on Iran have since been issued against the company, sparking new tensions in relations between the United States and China. Huawei denies any wrongdoing. He also reiterated that the company's products have never harmed national security of any country in the world.

So far, Huawei hasn't responded to Politico's report. And German media reports that that country's government is also not keen to implement a full ban.

Liu said Huawei had an "excellent track record" and had won the solid endorsement of major European telcos Deutsche Telekom, British Telecom and Orange. The Chinese vendor now has the largest market share of the telecommunications equipment market at 28 percent, ahead of Nokia, Ericsson, and Cisco, according to research firm Dell'Oro Group.
