resident Donald Trumpís national security team is looking at options to counter the threat of China spying on U.S. phone calls that include the government building a super-fast 5G wireless network, a senior administration official said on Sunday.

The official, confirming the gist of a report from Axios.com, said the option was being debated at a low level in the administration and was six to eight months away from being considered by the president himself.

The 5G network concept is aimed at addressing what officials see as Chinaís threat to U.S. cyber security and economic security.

The Trump administration has taken a harder line on policies initiated by predecessor Barack Obama on issues ranging from Beijingís role in restraining North Korea to Chinese efforts to acquire U.S. strategic industries.

And of course a "nationalized" 5G network would be subject to the Nationalized Security Apparatus which will make sure that all US residents will have access to only The Best News about their Feckless Leader!

3. I would 'assume'....

The new standard will be nothing like the old, the data rates will be much higher and it will have capabilities for the 'internet of things' with features for things like self driving cars.
