ZTE may live, as Trump administration reportedly reaches deal to revive it

After negotiating the terms, the parties have come to the tentative deal that is being reported Friday.

The ban would bar ZTE from conducting business with American companies and would ban all sales within the USA for seven years.

While such an agreement is viewed as a way to advance trade negotiations with China, lawmakers could be resistant to a deal. Sen.

The measure came as an amendment to the 2019 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which passed on a 351-66 vote, according to Bloomberg, would bar the federal government from using ZTE-made technology and would prevent the Defense Department from renewing contracts with vendors who do business with the company. But news of the agreement drew immediate fire on Capitol Hill. It is publicly traded, but the largest shareholder is a Chinese government-run company.

"If President Trump won't put our security before Chinese jobs, Congress will act on a bipartisan basis to stop him". US -traded shares of NXP Semiconductors NV rose 4.7 percent after the announcement, as signs of better U.S.

One reason for the decline is the widespread use of contraceptives, which would be undermined by this assault on Title X funding. Claire McCaskill, one of the Senate's most vulnerable incumbents, as well as in IN and North Dakota, where Republican Rep.

The Trump administration has struck a deal to lift a ban on Chinese cellphone maker ZTE, according to multiple reports, potentially putting President Trump on a collision course with Congress. Chuck Schumer, who said after the Senate Banking Committee vote, "If the president and his team won't follow through on tough sanctions against ZTE, it's up to Congress to ensure that it happens".

ZTE also is considered a national-security risk because the Chinese government could spy though the phone. "Simply a fine and changing board members would not protect America's economic or national security, and would be a huge victory for President Xi, and a dramatic retreat by President Trump".

"As a favor to the president [of China], I am absolutely taking a look at it", Trump said this week about ZTE. The Trump administration has pushed China to help cut the $376 billion trade surplus with the U.S, with Beijing so far making only vague commitments to buy more US goods, including farm products and energy. During the trip, Ross is expected to also play a role in dealing with the ZTE discussions. The Commerce Department decision would allow it to resume business with USA companies, including Qualcomm Inc, the chipmaker that is a ZTE supplier.

Trump has advanced an adversarial trade agenda with numerous USA allies so far this year, threatening many of them with tariffs if they don't take steps to allow more US companies to freely sell goods overseas. Trump wants Chinese officials to change their rules in a way that would allow more US exports into China, though he hasn't defined how this would work.

In April, the Commerce Department said ZTE instead paid full bonuses to employees who engaged in the illegal conduct, failed to issue letters of reprimand and lied about the practices to US authorities. John Cornyn (R-Tex.), wrote to top White House officials this week.
