Trump says ZTE support followed request from Chinese president

BY NIV ELIS - 05/17/18 02:54 PM EDT

President Trump on Thursday said that his surprise support for Chinese telecoms firm ZTE followed a request from Chinese President Xi Jinping to look into the matter.

The ban came in response to ZTE breaking U.S. trade control laws by selling components to Iran and North Korea. ZTE stands accused of stealing intellectual property on behalf of the Chinese government.

“They did very bad things to our country. They did a lot of bad things to our economy,” Trump said Thursday, but added that the company also bought a large number of components from American suppliers. The move caused ZTE to shutter its U.S. operations, and could be a death knell for the Chinese company.

Trump’s comments on Thursday followed a rare, bipartisan rebuke from a Congressional committee on the subject. Just an hour before Trump’s statements, the House Appropriations Committee adopted an amendment requiring the Commerce Department to keep its sanctions against ZTE in place. The committee approved the amendment to the 2019 Commerce, Justice, and Science Appropriations bill by a unanimous voice vote.

1. Ancient Chinese proverb: you can always fool a foreigner

Old moms saying: if the Chinese guy told you to jump off a bridge would you do that too?

4. I'm sure that's meaningful to the 46% of Americans struggling to pay for food & rent

Unfortunately most of them are Trumpsters, so they don't get the connection. #maga!
