The race to 5G

The big corporate story du jour is T-Mobile and Sprint, but we're going to focus on something specific the two wireless companies said when they announced a proposed merger: that the combined company would be able to move faster on fifth-generation wireless technology than anyone else — specifically the Chinese. Will that help win over government regulators? We'll talk about. Then, ahead of Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin's trip to Beijing, we'll talk about China's bid for tech domination by 2025. Plus: President Donald Trump has until midnight tonight to make up his mind on a whole bunch of temporary tariff exemptions. We'll look at the state of play so far.
