Trump signs $716 bn defense policy bill with watered-down China measures

Some commentators have been critical of the bill for lifting an earlier ban on China's telecommunications company ZTE after the company allegedly shipped products to Iran and North Korea illegally.

Green Beret killed in Afghanistan blast Tapper thanks McCain for his service "since President Trump would not do it" Trump rips McCain hours after signing bill named after him MORE (R-Ariz.) as "he who should not be named" after Trump did not mention McCain during a signing ceremony for a defense bill named for the senator.

Trump later made a reference to McCain at a political fund-raiser in Utica, New York, knocking him - as Trump does repeatedly - for voting against a bill to repeal parts of President Barack Obama's signature healthcare reform law a year ago.

Hundreds of demonstrators gathered in Copenhagen wearing burqas and other face veils as the law went into effect Wednesday. Those caught wearing such coverings face a fine of 1,000 kroner, while repeat offenders can face fines of 10,000 kroner.

The White House opposed putting stronger measures against the companies in the bill, and the measures were softened before lawmakers held their final vote.

This caps off months of will-they-won't-they from Republicans, many of whom view the two major Chinese telecoms as national security threats.

During his visit to Fort Drum, Trump met with senior leaders and observed an air assault demonstration and sling load operation. Back in June, the US Senate passed a version of the bill that would have re-imposed an export ban that would have been a de facto death sentence for ZTE because ZTE is heavily dependent on components like Qualcomm chips and Google's Android operating system.

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang urged the United States against implementing the disputed provisions of the law to avoid damaging China-U.S. relations.
