Last week, Chinese telecommunications company 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 prevent that from happening.

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

After the company was accused of violating US sanction laws by selling US-made technology in Iran, the US Commerce Department banned ZTE from using any US made components, including but not limited to Qualcomm chipsets and Android software. Because of this, Trump’s intervention is excellent news for ZTE.

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

It is uncertain what will happen next for ZTE and other Chinese telecommunication companies. However, if you’re in the US and want to get ZTE smartphones like Blade V9 or a Red Magic, it might be wise to have a backup plan.
