Senate Republicans Drop Attempt to Reimpose Sanctions on ZTE

Senate Republicans have dropped their attempt to reimpose U.S. sanctions on the Chinese telecommunications giant ZTE, lawmakers said, a victory for President Trump as congressional Republicans abandoned a rare effort to thwart his agenda. The retreat means ZTE, a company found guilty of selling U.S. goods to Iran in violation of sanctions, will duck Commerce Department penalties that bar U.S. companies from doing business with it.
