In negotiating terms, that means Trump is giving away the very leverage point that's putting the squeeze on China in exchange for exactly nothing, except putting US consumers and our country as a whole at risk. "That's an area where we will be exploring very, very promptly". "Obviously this is part of a very complex relationship between the United States and China that involves economic issues, national security issues and the like". This sometimes leads to glaring contradictions, like an announcement to end a suspension of economic sanctions on Iran on May 8th, while announcing five days later, with his comments on ZTE, that the US government would only enforce those sanctions selectively.

A number of retailers reported Tuesday that the U.S.is discussing lifting the ZTE penalties to keep away from agricultural sanctions China is making ready to impose on the U.S.
China objected to ZTE's punishment at trade talks in Beijing this month, and the American delegation agreed to report them to Trump.
In a statement on its website about the seven-year ban, ZTE said it was "unacceptable" that the USA government "insists on unfairly imposing the most severe penalty on ZTE even before the completion of investigation of facts".
China was asked to foreswear its World Trade Organization rights to challenge USA trade protection, a request that commentators in China likened to the "unequal treaties" imposed on China by imperialist powers in the 19th century. "So they can't say they don't know what we're asking for", he said. "We are now in close communication over details of the implementation". "We are insane to allow them to operate in USA without tighter restrictions".
The foreign ministry said Vice Premier Liu He will visit the U.S. from Tuesday to Saturday for consultations with U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.
