Congress has sanctions in place against certain Chinese tech companies….
The US Intelligence community is screaming that ZTE is a covert Chinese intel asset against America…
But, Trump , the ‘businessman’ has gone ahead and brokered a deal with the Chinese to SAVE JOBS IN CHINA………
Now Trump’s own party members in the Senate have moved to have their say on the ZTE deal….
Will they REALLY shit can their President’s deal and embarrass him in public risking his wrath months before the Midterm Elections?
Moving quickly to thwart the president’s $1.4 billion deal to save Chinese telecom manufacturer ZTE, lawmakers attached a new provision Monday to a must-pass defense authorization bill.
What they’re saying: President Trump’s deal is not just a national security problem, said Sen. Chris Van Hollen, who introduced the amendment along with Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and a bipartisan posse of cosponsors — it’s also bad dealmaking. “He got rolled,” Van Hollen told Codebook.
