The trade war between the United States and China is at a pivotal time now following the US government’s ban on Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd.
Many have deemed President Donald Trump has treated Huawei unfairly in the ban which forced American companies to stop working with Huawei, particularly Google who provided Huawei’s operating system, Andriod.
In light of that, here are 10 restaurant owners that are offering discounts to Huawei phone users − a move that mirrors what China companies and businesses are doing: reward customers who use Huawei smartphones.
