Huawei's billionaire CEO said Trump should meet him in China because he can only afford a paper aeroplane
Huawei's CEO Ren Zhengfei said Wednesday he would be happy to meet with President Donald Trump, but that he'd have to come to China. "He has private jets and he can come to China anytime, and I do not have private jet. My aeroplane is only made of paper, if it rains it might fall," Ren said.Ren was asked why he doesn't go to Washington to lobby Trump directly after Huawei was blacklisted by the US in May. Huawei's new phones are also blocked from running Google's mobile services thanks to the block.
Trump did not give a time for the meeting. He said on Friday that his administration would issue its final report on such products next week.
On Thursday, the CDC reported there have been 2,051 confirmed and probable U.S. lung injury cases and 39 deaths associated with use of e-cigarettes, or vaping products. Nearly 85 percent of lung injury patients in the nationwide outbreak have reported using products containing THC, the component of marijuana that gets people high.
In the CDC analysis, THC was detected in 23 of 28 patient samples of lung cells, including from three patients who said they did not use THC products. Nicotine was detected in 16 of 26 patient samples.
U.S. public health officials have recommended that people avoid using e-cigarettes that contain THC or any products that come from illicit sources.
