Schumer Statement On Deal Reached With ZTE

June 7, 2018

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer today released the following statement regarding the Trump administration’s announced deal with ZTE:

“President Trump should be aiming his trade fire at China, but instead he inexplicably aims it at allies like Canada, Mexico and Europe. When it comes to China, despite his tough talk, this deal with ZTE proves the president just shoots blanks.

“There is absolutely no good reason that ZTE should get a second chance, and this decision marks a 180 degree turn away from the president’s promise to be tough on China. It’s up to Congress now to act to reverse the deal.”
