President Donald Trump talks with U.S. Army Major General Walter "Walt" Piatt, the Commanding General of the Army's 10th Mountain Division and Fort Drum. Some lawmakers wanted to use the bill to reinstate tough sanctions on ZTE to punish the company for illegally shipping products to Iran and North Korea, but the restrictions included in the final National Defense Authorization Act, or NDAA, that passed Congress were weaker than earlier versions of the bill.

President Donald Trump gives a thumbs up as he poses with soldiers and U.S. Army Major General Walter "Walt" Piatt, the Commanding General of the Army's 10th Mountain Division and Fort Drum. The NDAA does strengthen the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), which reviews proposed foreign investments to weigh whether they threaten national security. That measure was seen as targeting China.
