Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou is out on bail in Vancouver while she fights an extradition request to the United States. This, as President Donald Trump suggested this week that he may intervene in efforts to prosecute her, if he thinks it will give the U.S. an advantage as it tackles trade talks with China.   

There are concerns about the President’s comments to Reuters, not only because it suggests he is not aligned with other administration officials who have said that the request for her extradition was a legal issue, not a political one.  But it also leaves a lot of U.S. business executives wondering how this could impact them.
