Speaking later Sunday on CNN's Reliable Sources, pro-Trump activist Amy Kremer agreed that there's no particular reason for Trump to attend, since he's regularly mocked on TV, such as on Saturday Night Live. The event has long attracted criticism from some journalists, but questions about the event took on new urgency this year because of Trump’s regular attacks on individual news outlets and the press at large. Trump often responds to stories he dislikes by labeling them “fake news”; like one of his top advisers, Steve Bannon, he has taken to calling the press “the opposition party”; and he has accused reporters of making up sources and fabricating stories, while offering no evidence for those assertions. On Friday, the tensions escalated further when White House press secretary Sean Spicer barred several news outlets, including POLITICO, from attending a briefing in his office.

Tech firms are racing to develop products that will be compatible with 5G, shorthand for the fifth generation of networks, which promise blazing fast connectivity for a generation used to streaming movies and TV directly to phones. South Korean carrier KT Corp aims to offer trial 5G services during the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang. The first large-scale commercial deployment of the technology is expected in 2020. Forrester analyst Thomas Husson said ZTE was using the phone to "showcase innovation" and "offer a glimpse into the future when people will be able to download full movies in seconds" but it was not likely to be a big seller. "The sad reality is that this smartphone will not end up in consumers' pockets because both 5G and Virtual Reality are still years away to be a mass-market consumer reality," he added. Founded in 1985, ZTE offers telecom equipment and services and has customers in more than 160 countries, according to the company.
