The only effect it will have is that ZTE products will disappear from our shelves over time! People with warranty claims might have a problem though!

ZTE supplies equipment for wireless networks and backhaul, not just phones or 3G modems and routers.

Count President Donald Trump as one of Chinese phone maker ZTE's new allies.

ZTE, the fourth-largest smartphone maker in the US, has been dealing with the US Commerce Department denial order that prevented US businesses from selling hardware or services to the company -- a seven-year ban that forced the company to shut down "the major operating activities of the company."

It looks like ZTE may get a reprieve. Trump tweeted on Sunday that he was working with Chinese President Xi Jinping to "find a way to get back into business, fast."
I added a small segment of the article, as it's considered trolling to just link drop (don't know if you were aware of that?).

Posting links by themselves is generally NOT acceptable. This is considered "Link Dropping" and can be a form of Trolling. Please include a small summary of what the link is about.
