The Department of Commerce continues to assess U.S. firms’ requests to sell certain products to Huawei Technologies, Reuters reported Saturday.

A White House official said President Trump’s earlier comment on Huawei referred only to a ban that restricts U.S. agencies from procuring equipment from the Chinese telecommunications firm. The department added Huawei to a blacklist in May due to national security risks, according to the report.
