Abstract

This paper aims to explain the securitization process of China’s technology companies by the U.S Government. While
the U.S has been aware of the cyber threat since 1998, before Trump's presidency, the U.S. Government had never
taken drastic measures against foreign technology companies based on national security pretext. This paper revealed
that the U.S. Executive has succeeded in securitizing the Chinese hardware and software companies, proved by the
increasing number of U.S. Citizens, see China as a major threat to the U.S.
