WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday called on U.S. telecommunications companies to boost their work to build faster 5G networks, saying they were lagging and at risk of being left behind other countries’ efforts.

“I want the United States to win through competition, not by blocking out currently more advanced technologies,” Trump said in a pair of tweets. It was not immediately clear what blockage the president was referring to, and representatives for the White House could not be immediately reached for comment.
