WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Senators Mark Warner and Marco Rubio on Thursday urged the Trump administration not to use Huawei Technologies Co as a bargaining chip in ongoing trade talks with China.

“Allowing the use of Huawei equipment in U.S. telecommunications infrastructure is harmful to our national security,” the senators wrote. “In no way should Huawei be used as a bargaining chip in trade negotiations.” Trump said last month that while Huawei was “very dangerous” he could imagine Huawei potentially included in a trade deal with China.
