At a press conference the US President endorsed FCC plans to improve the country’s position in the global 5G race.
President Trump likes to cherry-pick the people who stand behind him when he is public speaking and, as well as FCC Chaiman Ajit Pai, on first glance he seemed to have some kind of Village People tribute band in attendance.
As you can see from the video below, however, they turned out to be telecoms engineers and some kind of rural broadband lobby group.
The main theme of Trump’s introduction to the latest 5G initiatives was the apparent need for the US to be the world leader in 5G technology.
He apparently views 5G as a key component in his geopolitical tussle with China and had previously tweeted his enthusiasm for the technology, even going so far as to bring up 6G in the process, a step too far he seemed to acknowledge in this speech.
He then made way for Pai, who announced a bunch of initiatives designed to make Trump’s 5G dreams come true.
