very sad this - the USDC sanctioned ZTE for their employees trading with Iran and NK, putting 75,000 jobs at risk.

 

Xi makes a call and trump reverses the decision :kook:

 

 

Quote

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

 

:huh:

 

he just gave away a big bargaining chip.

 

Quote

In addition, the prospective shutdown of ZTE was seen as major leverage in ongoing discussions between China and the United States over Chinese trade practices.

 

“Given his pressure on Beijing on trade, I don’t understand concern for Chinese jobs,” in the tweet, said Adam Segal, a technology and security expert at the Council on Foreign Relations. It “goes against the steady stream of security warnings about ZTE,” he added.

 

Both ZTE and Huawei have been the subject of repeated security warnings by the American intelligence establishment. The two telecom equipment makers have a close relationship with China’s government, and a 2012 report from Congress cautioned that allowing the companies to build out American cellular networks would be a threat to national security.

 

nice of him to save Chinese jobs huh ? - unlike those Carrier jobs.

 

he's weak on Russia, and now on China too it seems.

Same company fined for selling USA technology to Iran. Maybe trump should just hand Iran the info directly, why bring US dollars into the mix. 

 

He’ll berate US companies like amazon but support Chinese companies.

Me thinks Trump couldn't negotiate his way out of a paper bag. 

Just keep moving the goalposts all over. Then you can declare victory at will.

He moves policies/goalposts like nobody's business. So nobody knows what they actually are...today. How can you lose with that? He knows what he's doing in that regard.

That's the main problem with this buffoon. The dust never settles. It's one giant haboob.
Trump is main stream media. All sensationalism. Very little substance.

the problem is he has no long term vision,

 

he just reacts.

 

so what he does today is at odds with what he did yesterday.

 

he lies and claims to be the best ever,

and his supporters believe him.

People here and in the Media, including an angry Shep Smith, seem to think Trump awoke this morning and decided to do this. Let’s review some recen history if we could. 

 

China knocked Lil Kim upside the head

China has withheld moral and material support for Kim 

Kim visits China in an unprecedented trip

Kim meets SoKo president

Kim is meeting with Trump

NoKo is making all sorts of denuke noises. 

China not insisting on being party to those talks

 

China likely asked for a ZTE reconsideration as their “reward” for good behavior. Part of a complex negotiation perhaps, unlike the one-way Iran nuke deal. 

 

Will the price be worth it, as said above, time will tell.
