Feel sorry for US based consumers. Historically protectionism always
hurts the local economy most. By creating artificial demand on local
products, over time local products become uncompetitive for export.

I wonder, in what fundamental way Cisco and Juniper are US products,
Huawei and ZTE Chinese products? To me it looks like Cisco has no
development on IOS-XR outside India, components and assembly is in
China. Shareholders are people holding Vanguard/Blackrock. What makes
US company a US company?
