Qualcomm Inc. has been putting pressure on the Trump administration to allow it to sell components to Huawei Technologies Co., saying current restrictions risk channeling revenue to foreign competitors rather than preventing the Chinese company from obtaining the parts, The Wall Street Journal reports.

The U.S. chipmaker is lobbying to be permitted to sell chips to Huawei that would be used in 5G phones, the newspaper reported, citing a presentation it says has been “circulating around Washington” and without specifying how it obtained the document. U.S. chipmakers are required to obtain a license from the Commerce Department to ship certain components to Huawei.

Qualcomm says that, due to the restrictions, its foreign competitors now have access to a market worth as much as $8 billion each year. It cites Taiwan's MediaTek Inc. and South Korea's Samsung Electronics Co. as those benefiting from the redirected revenue stream.
