Google and Facebook are already shown to be so pervasive in European society, and at least in the US, used as a tool to influence election by foreign entities. Why don't the EU ban them, but instead choose to evaluate banning Huawei, with no proof of having back door.

Amazon sells everything from streaming video to organic grapes, and it’s all part of a large (likely successful) strategy to dominate the entire consumer market.
