On Monday, an amendment was announced that would negate President Trump's deal to save Chinese tech company, ZTE from international sanctions. The amendment will be added to the upcoming National Defense Authorization Act when it comes up for a vote in the Senate.
ZTE was set to be sanctioned for doing business with Iran and North Korea.
Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer describes the ZTE amendment as the Senate "saying loudly and in a bipartisan fashion that the president is dead wrong to back off on ZTE."
In addition, Republican senator Tom Cotton commented that the "death penalty" is needed for ZTE, adding that he would "expect there wouldn't be a ZTE" if the amendment passes.
