In a tweet, Trump urges the Commerce Department to give ZTE "a way to get back into business, fast."

Could he just give this to an American phone company? Or does he want to use this a leverage against Chinese tariffs.

ZTE is worth $2billion+ to the American economy every year.

Not even including all the non-financial benefits it gives to other American companies like Google to further build the Android brand. That's 1000's of jobs displaced in both China and the US alike.
