In a stunning trade policy reversal, Trump pledges to revive Chinese bussiness and prevent Chinese job losses.

President Trump pledged on Sunday to help Chinese telecom giant ZTE return to business, days after the company said it would cease “major operating activities” because of the U.S. government’s recent trade restrictions, a dramatic shift in tone for a president who has long accused China of stealing U.S. jobs.

“President Xi of China, and I, are working together to give massive Chinese phone company, ZTE, a way to get back into business, fast,” Trump tweeted. “Too many jobs in China lost. Commerce Department has been instructed to get it done!”

The comment could presage a reversal of one of the Trump administration’s toughest actions to date against a Chinese company. Last month, the Commerce Department penalized ZTE for violating a settlement with the U.S. government over illegal shipments to Iran and North Korea, barring U.S. firms for seven years from exporting critical microchips and other parts to ZTE.

As a result, ZTE halted major operations, stressing in a statement Wednesday that it is “actively communicating with the relevant U.S. government departments in order to facilitate the modification or reversal” of the Commerce Department’s order.

Now the crisis for ZTE may be nearing an end, a development that stunned trade and national security experts. The Treasury Department and the Commerce Department had been strongly aligned against ZTE as recently as several days ago.

A high-level Chinese delegation was in Washington on Friday and raised the issue of whether the Trump administration could relax its stance on ZTE, but Trump’s announcement on Sunday in the Twitter post caught many of his advisers flat-footed as there had not been a broad agreement to change the administration's approach, according to U.S. officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter.
Make China great again???

Go trump Go! \:D/

I'm hoping you can find Trump's tweet. I'm guessing that's some more bullshit that you clowns troll with.

It's not like ZTE was violating US sanctions against Iran and NK and selling phones that allow the Chinese government to spy of US citizens who buy them.

....oh wait....thats exactly what they were doing.

google it.

Rump''s commerce deptarment fined them $1.2B
for violating the NK and Iran sanctions. The deal included ZTE firing the emplloyees involved whcih ZTE never did, so Rump's commerce dept banned the sale of US components to them.

The US military order all ZTE product out of base stores over security concerns, bestbuy dropped them for the same reason and most tech type reviews all say the same thing. These things were designed specifically to allow the chinese government to access them like they struggle to do with western products, then they are sold dirt cheap to get people to replace their secure expensive device with a cheap insecure devicy. ZTE is a big part of the chinese governement's effort to surpress diseint within china and a nice espionage tool outside China.

Wake up.....

The only question I have is if the deal would actually help with NK or if the main goal is to line Rump's own family's pockets?

It makes no sense at all from most anyother perspective and appears to send a strong signal that ignoring US sanctions is OK.

So you cannot back up the cr@p that you post. You just make more accusations.

So you're saying that you have no facts of any kind on the suject to support your beliefs and need to rely on me to provide them, but somehow you magically know I'm lying?

Interesting. I think we're finished here.
