He’s brave.

His is the son of Christian missionaries, was raised in Namibia, in Africa.

It takes guys to talk like him in California tech, even if you have a billion.

Perhaps especially if you have a billion.

These people Really hate America to do something like this. Apple will crack any phone for the Chinese also but won’t do it here even when ordered by a court.

It’s mission impossible to win the trade war as long as globalisation (which China is keen to defend) is going on.
