ZTE Saved by Trump? It Seems So

Last week, ZTE made an announcement that shook the mobile industry: the company was forced to shut down after the US Commerce Department issued a ban against it.

This week, none other than US President Donald Trump stepped in to save the day.

On Twitter, as usual, Trump announced he had instructed his Commerce Department to help get ZTE back in business.

That’s excellent news for ZTE, after being accused of selling US-made technology in Iran, thus violating US sanctions laws. In return, that had made the US Commerce Department ban ZTE from using any US made components, including Qualcomm chipsets and even Android software.

Now, with Trump’s intervention, things might be looking up for them.

However, other Republicans are still holding the line, insisting on more restrictions for Chinese companies.

What will happen next is anybody’s guess, though if you’re in the US and want to get a Blade V9 or a gaming smartphone, it might be wise to have a backup plan to buy them.
