The lawmakers aim to introduce the measure as an amendment to a national defence authorisation bill coming up for debate in the Senate. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., who was considered one of a handful of Senate Republicans who met with President Trump Wednesday to speak commerce, mentioned.

But not all of his conference agrees. Sen.

Khalilah said: "There's no necessary need for a pardon". "In general, these kinds of tariffs are a big mistake, and using national security as an excuse is a bigger mistake".

The Commerce Department Thursday announced that it had finalized a deal to lift a seven-year ban on ZTE buying American goods, which had already significantly hurt its business. In change, ZTE pays a wonderful and set up an American-run compliance board.
