Thanks to a ban from the U.S. Department of Commerce, ZTE has been forced to cease its global operations. Now, in a twist of fate for the company, U.S. President Donald Trump has tweeted that he and the President of China are working together to get ZTE a way back into the business.
Up until last month, ZTE was the fourth-largest smartphone vendor in the United States. This month, it is shutting down its entire global operations. This is because last month, the United States Department of Commerce announced a seven-year ban on ZTE from ordering parts from Amercian companies.
