Dominating in electric garbage trucks, buses.

Not an SOE but I guess that means nothing to US legislators.

Easily understandable.  This situation is just like Huawei.  We all know that BYD is an agent of the Chinese government and it will surreptitiously insert a whole host of sensors and cameras into the hopper of the garbage trucks to read all of the sensitive information off of our garbage.  This information will be transmitted back to the Chinese government who will undertake nefarious acts with this ill-gotten intelligence.

At least the US government is on top of this one!

Now they are stealing our garbage? I knew it!
Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent

Devious communists: first they refuse to import our garbage while getting paid for it, now they steal it without getting paid.  ::)
