Why you ask? The US from being a net exporter of technologies now has become a net importer of technologies, if not they will slip to third world very soon if they cannot keep up. Proud is being stupid as it does not help you make money, and being protectism is of no use when who is interested in outdated technologies, the world will just leave you behind. Look behind and see, none of your Tech Giants lead anymore and all are already prone for takeovers, any Tech companies can help them improve their bottom line? Sorry, mine is not for sale. Your attack on Huawei just increased your isolation and quicken your demise, soon US has no more technology to sell.
A Real Estate company makes money from buying up land to create a Land Bank for future use. My technology company just create trillions of technologies that can buy up the entire world, nobody is so stupid to liquidate when the coast is not clear, when every single cent will be taken away.
