November 18, 2019

Washington, D.C. – Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer today released the following statement after the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) of the U.S. Department of Commerce announced that it will extend the Temporary General License (TGL) to Huawei and its non-U.S. affiliates:

“If President Trump and his Commerce Department agree that Huawei is a national security threat, they should start acting like it. Every day President Trump is soft on Huawei, the Chinese Communist Party takes that as a signal that they can continue hurting American jobs and threatening our national security without any repercussions.”
