According to reports, Biden regime efforts to stop Huawei from ever developing this kind of thing – or at least to not beat the U.S. in developing this kind of thing – have failed. The Chinese company not only designed but fully mass produced the 7-nanometer processor, which is featured in Huawei's new Mate 60 Pro smartphone, right underneath the nose of the U.S. State Department.
"The whole purpose of blacklisting the company and many other Chinese tech firms was to restrict access to US technology to make these sorts of devices," notes Zero Hedge about the utter and complete failure of the Biden regime to impose sanctions that actually work.
Maybe if the Biden regime spent less time trying to mutilate children's genitals and more time fulfilling their obligations as "public servants" of We the People, these types of embarrassing and dangerous-for-national-security blunders would be less common?

Hilariously, the Mate 60 Pro smartphone hit the market right when U.S. Commerce Secretary and buffoon Gina Raimondo was on a taxpayer-funded trip to communist China.
"This is a sign that China is 'thumbing their noses' at the U.S. for the wave of sanctions that have failed so far," Zero Hedge explains.
According to statements made by Raimondo about the matter – Joe Biden, meanwhile, is probably busy getting a tan on the beach in Connecticut – the U.S. is now "working to obtain more information on the character and composition of the purported 7mm chip."
"Let's be clear: export controls are just one tool in the U.S. government's toolbox to address the national security threats presented by the PRC (People's Republic of China). The restrictions in place since 2019 have knocked Huawei down and forced it to reinvent itself – at a substantial cost to the PRC government."
Also commenting on the matter was Nazak Nikakhtar, a former Trump administration official within the Commerce Department's Industry & Analysis division, who stated that the Commerce Department will be launching its own investigation into Huawei's new smartphone.
The Office of Export Enforcement, a division of the Commerce Department, is expected to lead a study to determine if China's top chipmaker, Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp.'s Kirin 9000s chip, was made using any U.S. technology.
Since communist China is notorious for rip-offs and counterfeits, it is more than likely that the chips in question were made at least in part using U.S. technology. Such counterfeiting is the foundation of China's economy, after all – that and the mass production of cheap junk made from inferior and often toxic materials.
According to Bloomberg, which first broke the news about the new 7mm chip, Xi Jinping's efforts to develop technological self-sufficiency must be working. The phone in question apparently has "an unusually high proportion of Chinese parts ... a sign of the country's progress in developing domestic tech capabilities."
As all of this is happening, recall that all central government employees in China are now prohibited from using Apple's iPhones as their smartphones. That prohibition was also recently extended to local governments and employees at state-owned companies.
This prohibition alone threatens to put a massive dent into Apple's bottom line since the company derives about 20 percent of its sales from China, which is currently the world's second-largest economy – and soon, probably, the world's first-largest economy with the way things are headed.
