|I don't know what journalists should read a book, but American chip makers are not going to relocate their supply chain to thieving Rat-Land. |
Chips will continue to be air-shipped from secure facilities in Taiwan, the US and other locations. There is zero reason to accede to China's demands to relocate the supply chain. There's no reason Chinese plants can't wait less than 24 hours for delivery of chips.
The fact that the chip makers trade association says this is what Trump is pressuring them to accept to make him look like he's achieving something demonstrates he understands NOTHING about the China IP theft problem.
China can rather try to reverse engineer the chips and always remain perpetually behind the technology curve. A decade from now that constant failure will bring China enlightenment. Trump will likely be dead by that point.
