Albuquerque Journal - - BUSINESS -

WASH­ING­TON — Sen­ate Democrats are urg­ing Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump to re­con­sider his plans for help­ing Chi­nese telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions com­pany ZTE get back into busi­ness.

Sen­ate Mi­nor­ity Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and other lead­ing Democrats sent a let­ter Tues­day to the ad­min­is­tra­tion say­ing Trump’s ac­tion casts “grave doubt” on his cam­paign prom­ise to put Amer­ica first. Their let­ter says, “Amer­ica’s na­tional se­cu­rity must not be used as a bar­gain­ing chip in trade ne­go­ti­a­tions.”
