NEW YORK -- U.S. President Donald Trump hinted at a new, less-harsh stance toward Chinese telecom equipment company Huawei Technologies, tweeting Thursday that he opposes blocking out advanced technology in the field of wireless communications.

"I want 5G, and even 6G, technology in the United States as soon as possible," the president wrote in a morning tweet. Noting that it is "far more powerful, faster, and smarter than the current standard," Trump called on American companies to step up their efforts, "or get left behind."
