On Sunday, President Donald Trump signed into law a policy bill, putting on hold a planned delivery of F-35 jets to Ankara thus ratcheting up tensions with Washington's North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally, the Turkish daily Hurriyet and United States news magazine Foreign Policy reported.
Vice President Mike Pence is scheduled to join Trump for the event at this northern NY military base, which is home to the Army's 10th Mountain Division.
"Every day the Army is fighting for us, and now we are fighting for you 100 percent", Trump told about 500 soldiers gathered in a hangar at Fort Drum.
ZTE seemingly had little hope of survival until Trump tweeted that he was pushing the Commerce Department to work with ZTE to remove the ban - an unprecedented move by a U.S. president to countermand one of his own departments.
National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) bars F-35 deliveries to Turkey until the Pentagon delivers a report within 90 days to the appropriate congressional defence committees.
Trump thanked several lawmakers during his speech, but he did not mention McCain, a former US Navy pilot and a prisoner-of-war.

The bill also authorizes billions of dollars for military construction, including family housing.
Trump later made a reference to McCain at a political fundraiser in Utica, New York, knocking him - as Trump does repeatedly - for voting against a bill to repeal parts of President Barack Obamas signature healthcare reform law past year. The NDAA also allows $7.6 billion for 77 of Lockheed Martin's F-35 Joint Strike Fighters.
"It's not enough to have American presence in space".
The White House said the NDAA helps to develop "a more lethal and resilient force", and will increase the size of US forces by authorizing 15,600 more troops across the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps.
Basav Sen, climate justice project director at the Washington, D.C. -based Institute for Policy Studies, pointed to another climate threat: The White House, even before President Trump, has made securing access to oil and gas a national security imperative.
