Interesting, since we find ZTE at the #BudapestBridge with Telenor, who are themselves partnered with Alfa Group at Vimpelcom!

We all remember Alfa Group, don't we?
August 2010:

"Under a 200 million euro ($254 million) contract to be announced on Monday, ZTE will build a mobile network for 4.5 million users for Telenor in Hungary."…
In 2012 we learned ZTE, "sold Iran’s largest telecom firm a powerful surveillance system capable of monitoring landline, mobile and internet communications, interviews and contract documents show."

Hmm, who's done extensive work in Iran again?…
Alfa Group and Vimpelcom. Again.

In the telecommunications market specifically, but they also sold nuclear technology to Iran! Go figure!…
It gets worse.

Vimpelcom (now VEON) and ZTE agreed to build a "complete virtual network infrastructure" together in 2016.

What could go wrong?

*HINT* the real surveillance state is, well, actual surveillance states like China & Russia. cc @thespybrief
There are more places to take this, but the point is this:

Donald Trump, as "POTUS", is essentially lobbying to benefit not one, but two, hostile foreign powers through his Twitter feed.

Because #MAGA, obviously.
