"Lifting these penalties that were instituted after a law enforcement process would undermine the credibility of the United States sanctions", they wrote, saying ZTE has ties to China's military and intelligence and that giving it access to U.S. components and technology is a security risk. That could have had a major impact on the US wireless market, considering companies like Qualcomm derive significant revenues from sales of chipsets and other components to ZTE, and carriers like AT&T sell the company's phones in the prepaid market.

Trump has recently called into question China's commitment to the pressure campaign, writing in a tweet on Monday that "word is that recently the Border has become much more porous and more has been filtering in".
