Because the anti Huawei talk is obviously not in people's interest. Just look how zero politicians worldwide lament that Cisco should be banned from anything related to internet infrastructure despite showing again and again that they are unwilling to stop implementing backdoors. Cisco makes it obvious that backdoors are A OK as long as it's our backdoors. No one acting against Huawei actually cares about peoples security.

Neither... it's nothing but hegemony with the pretext of both.
