President Trump signs NDAA, banning government use of ZTE and Huawei technology

China has condemned US President Donald Trump for signing an act committing to stronger military backup to Taiwan and placing Chinese companies under closer scrutiny, saying that the move will damage the countries' ties.

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.

In a separate statement earlier on Tuesday, the Chinese commerce ministry said it would conduct a comprehensive assessment of the bill, which includes watered-down controls on USA government contracts with China's ZTE and Huawei Technologies.

The president didn't mention McCain's name during his remarks at Fort Drum, New York.

"This is actually the second bill that has been named after Sen". Mattis argued that blocking Turkey's access to the most sophisticated stealth aircraft ever would cause a disruption in the USA military's supply chain in the Middle East.

"No enemy on earth can match the strength, courage and skill of the American armed forces", Trump said.

The bill gives the Pentagon a $638 billion base budget for defence-related programmes linked to the Department of Energy plus an additional $69 billion for possible overseas operations.

He said there was "no better place than right here at Fort Drum" to celebrate passage of the bill, which will boost military pay by 2.6%, giving service members their largest increase in nine years. ZTE was nearly banned entirely from the States, while Huawei faced pressure when it tried to enter the USA smartphone market. Huawei and ZTE have received a lot of flak from the United States government over suspicions of espionage.

Leaders of USA intelligence agencies have said they are concerned that ZTE, Huawei Technologies Co Ltd and some other Chinese companies are beholden to the Chinese government or Communist Party, raising the risk of espionage.

Democrats and Republicans alike viewed them as security threats and pushed forward with this bill despite the latter's initial attempt to re-impose sanctions on them instead of an outright trade ban. That measure was seen as targeting China.

The bill also authorizes billions of dollars for military construction, including family housing. The mandate to produce a study came after an earlier version proposed to bar the delivery of F-35s to Turkey.

The Turkish defence industry has taken an active role in the production of aircraft.
