      I hope they don't get back to android and instead they make their own O.S.
      It be nice to know that if the US bans everyone there will still be alternatives

                              The US will ultimately be seen to be a bad place to do business. Non US manufacturers will go their own way, the US will be in one bubble and everyone else will be in another.

                                I am not sure, but i think that they could just create a new company ( which might be equally as hard) and sell their phones via it

                                    This is going to affect US companies as well in the long run, as manufacturers around the world will become cautious doing business with U.S Companies in future as they lose trust and fear the same can be happened with anyone anytime. So chances are there the world will now turn towards self dependence in all technologies.

                                          China's rise of economy helps U.S. quick recovery since 2009's Wall Street meltdown; they bought a lot of U.S. goods and paid a lot of U.S. patents. Trump lied and slandered Chinese government as thief, just because a few lazy researchers copied U.S.'s just like any other nations does. HuaWei owns many U.S. patents, which are difficult to get, and several U.S. companies borrow these patents. Now HuaWei ask them to pay royalties.

Or maybe if they don't want to do that, just move to a new industry. I don't think Huawei will go bankrupt at all because they are a Chinese company and the Chinese are very smart imo. They most likely have a robust backup plan or they can come up with a great one now.

The most funny thing is that, use opposite reason, one is because it is not a Chinese state-owned enterprise (a private enterprise in the market), and the other is because it is a Chinese enterprise ( state-owned enterprise or even a military enterprise or spy enterprise)..
