China is now threatening the U.S. with a major “counterattack” after President Trump cut off Chinese tech giant Huawei from receiving computer chips from Taiwan. As The Daily Wire reports:

The Trump administration has cut off China’s Huawei from being able to receive products from Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co Ltd (TSMC), which is the world’s largest manufacturer of advanced microchips.

TSMC “has stopped new orders from Huawei Technologies in response to Washington’s move aimed at further limiting chip supplies to the Chinese company,” Reuters reported. “A new rule, unveiled by the U.S. Commerce Department on Friday, expands U.S. authority to require licenses for sales to Huawei of semiconductors made abroad with U.S. technology, vastly expanding its reach to halt exports to the world’s No. 2 smartphone maker.”

The news hit Beijing hard with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) responding that it will take “all necessary measures” to respond to the devastating news technology restrictions…

The CCP published propaganda in their state-run Global Times in a piece titled, “China readies biggest counterattack against US,” which said that China would “take forceful countermeasures.” China threatened to target specific Americans as well as “putting US companies on an ‘unreliable entity list,’ launching investigations and imposing restrictions on US companies such as Apple, and halting purchase of Boeing airplanes.”

The move comes after months of renewed tensions between the US and China over the communist nation using deception to hide the true extent of the Coronavirus outbreak.
