A Van Hollen provision already in the defense bill would require Trump to certify to Congress that certain Chinese telecommunications companies such as ZTE and Huawei have obeyed USA laws for one year and worked in cooperation with US investigators before pulling back the economic sanctions imposed on the companies. "Export control and sanctions laws should not be negotiable, because fidelity to the rule of law is a key part of what distinguishes the US from a country like China that is ruled by a Communist dictatorship".
