Senate Shows a Spine: Trump and Xi's ZTE Deal Blocked

                                             Good Day World!

In a rare bipartisan argument, the Senate slapped Trump for trying to aide the enemy, China, by blocking his slimy deal with ZTE.

It's the first time GOP senators teamed up with their senate colleagues against our wannabe dictator. A real milestone. 

The bipartisan amendment, which has been added to the must-pass National Defense Authorization Act, would essentially kill Trump's attempted deal with Xi.

One of the co-sponsors of the measure, Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark, told reporters the amendment would likely put ZTE out of business.

Trump's pathetic attempt to use ZTE as a bargaining chip in trade negotiations has backfired. Congress strongly feels the company is a national defense threat.

To recap; ZTE is considered by the intelligence community to be a mechanism for espionage by, in part, selling phones in the U.S. that can be tracked and enabled to steal intellectual property.

Trump's desperation to make a deal somewhere in the world on trade has been an utter failure. Look no further than the recent G-7 Summit.

Now that the senate has displayed some spine, maybe Trump will get the message: he's not a dictator yet!

Time for me to walk on down the road...
