TAIPEI -- Huawei Technologies founder and CEO Ren Zhengfei on Wednesday suggested U.S. President Donald Trump meet him in China, striking a bullish tone in the face of American pressure on the Chinese group's global expansion.

"Maybe President Trump should come here. I don't have an airplane to fly to the U.S.," Ren said at a panel discussion Wednesday at Huawei headquarters in the Chinese city of Shenzhen.
