After receiving criticism for his plan to help save jobs at a Chinese telephone company, President Donald J. Trump tweeted a defense for his position on Monday.

On Sunday, Trump posted a message that said he is working with China to save jobs at ZTE, one of China’s leading technology companies. The U.S. government has barred American firms from doing business with ZTE, leading the telecom company to end “major operating activities.”

The tweet led to questions as some wondered why he was so interested in saving jobs in China.

On Monday, Trump tweeted an explanation, writing: ZTE, the large Chinese phone company, buys a big percentage of individual parts from U.S. companies. This is also reflective of the larger trade deal we are negotiating with China and my personal relationship with President Xi.
