Scaramucci says the president has done 'a 180-degree turn' on the handling of the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. Anthony Scaramucci , President Donald Trump 's former communications advisor, made a case that there's now an “even money” chance his former boss could win re-election

Why it Matters

Scaramucci—who was fired from his White House role after just 10 days and is now working with the conservative, anti-Trump Lincoln Project PAC—was referring to China's ZTE telecommunications firm, which was slapped with sanctions in April 2018 for doing business with Iran and North Korea, both of which were under sanctions blocking deals with foreign companies.

But though the sanctions were working, the president rescinded them within two months. The two sides reached a deal to allow ZTE to continue operations. The firm would pay a $1 billion fine and change its board within 30 days, with a U.S.-picked compliance team embedded in the company. ZTE also agreed to give the U.S. $400 million as insurance for compliance.

  Trump Paid China $188K in Taxes from 2013 to 2015: Report Not long before he became president, Donald Trump reportedly paid $188,561 to the Chinese government in taxes, despite paying little to no U.S. income tax in most of the previous decade.Trump paid China $188,561 between 2013 and 2015 through a Chinese bank account controlled by his company Trump International Hotels Management L.L.C., according to a report published Tuesday by The New York Times. The Chinese bank account is said to be one of only three foreign accounts the president maintains, with the other two being located in the U.K. and Ireland.

Then, Trump tweeted in May 2018: "President Xi of China, and I, are working together to give massive Chinese phone company, ZTE, a way to get back into business, fast. Too many jobs in China lost. Commerce Department has been instructed to get it done!"

The deal baffled lawmakers on both sides of the aisle. GOP Senator Marco Rubio—a prominent China hawk—said: "China on the verge of winning again." Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said: "The president who roared like a lion is governing like a lamb when it comes to China."

Scaramucci's tweet included a link to a report on Trump's ZTE move, tying the lifting of sanctions to the president's business interests.

AFP and The South China Morning Post reported that Trump sent his ZTE tweet days after Beijing approved $500 million in loans to an Indonesian theme park that the Trump Organization has a deal to license the president's name to.

The Times' revelations about Trump's bank account in China, Scaramucci suggested, fits a pattern of the president seeking to enrich himself via his interactions with Beijing.

The Counterpoint

Trump defended his ZTE intervention amid the backlash. "ZTE, the large Chinese phone company, buys a big percentage of individual parts from U.S. companies," he tweeted. "This is also reflective of the larger trade deal we are negotiating with China and my personal relationship with President Xi."

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said: "ZTE did do some inappropriate things. They've admitted to that." He added: "The question is: Are there alternative remedies to the one that we had originally put forward? And that's the area we will be exploring very, very promptly."

Regarding the Times' revelations on Tuesday, Trump Organization vice president and chief legal officer, Alan Garten, dismissed the report as "pure speculation" that made "incorrect assumptions."

He said the China account was opened "in order to pay the local taxes" and to "explore the potential for hotel deals in Asia." He added: "No deals, transactions or other business activities ever materialised and, since 2015, the office has remained inactive."
