President Trump Trying to Bring ZTE Back to Life

"This is also reflective of the larger trade deal we are negotiating with China and my personal relationship with President Xi", Trump tweeted. "I think if we can get a deal on renewing Nafta and changing Nafta to our liking, that really would be a very good kind of foundation to move on".

And President Trump needs China's cooperation in ironing out the trade spat, not to mention North Korea and a host of other issues. This sometimes leads to glaring contradictions, like an announcement to end a suspension of economic sanctions on Iran on May 8th, while announcing five days later, with his comments on ZTE, that the USA government would only enforce those sanctions selectively.

"The report concluded that the risks associated with ZTE's provision of equipment to US critical infrastructure could undermine American national security interests", Wyden said.

Republican U.S. Senator Marco Rubio has opposed any softening on ZTE.

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said during an appearance at the National Press Club in Washington Monday that "ZTE did do some inappropriate things".

But the U.S. says the Chinese firm breached that agreement, resulting in the current ban, which came as tensions increased between the United States and China on trade.

Top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer accused Trump of "backing off" and "doing a 180 on China".

"This president has taken China to task for its unfair trade practices", he said.

USA companies are estimated to provide 25 percent to 30 percent of components used in ZTE's equipment, which includes smartphones and gear to build telecommunications networks.

China's opening helped it make $281.3 million internationally just over the weekend. A fourth Avengers film has been scheduled for release in one year.

"I've never seen a president step in and reverse an agency decision like this".

USA officials are now discussing a package of changes that would relax penalties on ZTE in exchange for China easing tariffs on US agricultural products, though talks remain very fluid. Bilateral talks between the world's two biggest economies resume in Washington this week.

The U.S. government sees the plan as a threat, and proposes to target it with tariffs on China's tech exports.

ZTE's situation convinced many Chinese that rather than being dependent on foreign suppliers, the country must manufacture key technology products itself.

As any Trump Administration cabinet secretary with an instinct for self-preservation would do, Ross came down hard on ZTE, issuing a seven-year import ban that appeared likely to put the firm and its 70,000 employees out of business.

China on Monday welcomed Trump's comments.

"They are basically conducting an all-out assault to steal what we've already developed and use it as the baseline for their development so they can supplant us as the leader in the most important technologies of the 21st century", Rubio said at a Foreign Relations Committee hearing on Asia policy.

Huawei and ZTE products are being removed from the three store chains operated by the Defense Department at installations worldwide, Pentagon spokesperson Maj. "We are now in close communication over details of the implementation". "Given the security concerns associated with these devices, as expressed by senior USA intelligence officials, it was not prudent for the department's exchange services to continue selling these products to our personnel". "We are insane to allow them to operate in USA without tighter restrictions".

Ross last month accused ZTE of misleading the department and warned, "This egregious behavior can not be ignored".
