US Senate Votes To Ban ZTE…. AGAIN

The U.S. Senate has voted to reinstate a ban on ZTE that prevents the Chinese telecom company from buying U.S. components and using U.S. software. As The Verge notes, “it’s still not clear if the reversal will make it into law: it has to clear a conference with the House, and then avoid a veto from President Trump, who advocated for cutting a deal that would lift the ban.” Thus the games aren’t over just yet. But it’s clear that American politicians not named Donald Trump want to take down ZTE over violating sanctions on Iran and North Korea. Not to mention the general consensus that ZTE is a national security risk.

Let the games begin.
