BEIJING – Huawei slammed the US for having “a loser’s attitude” Friday as it reported revenues of over $100 billion for 2018. Rotating chairman Guo Ping made the comments, reported by CNBC, as the US pressures its allies to exclude the Chinese telecom from their 5G rollouts.

“We have no intention of committing suicide,” he said.
