The Trump administration hit hard against the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) with the announcement that a Taiwan chip manufacturer will be building a plant in the United States
Pompeo Warns China against Interfering with U.S. Reporters in Hong Kong
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Sunday warned China against interfering with the work of American reporters in Hong Kong, following China’s expulsion of several U.S. reporters from the mainland.
“It has recently come to my attention that the Chinese government has threatened to interfere with the work of American journalists in Hong Kong.
These journalists are members of a free press, not propaganda cadres, and their valuable reporting informs Chinese citizens and the world,” Pompeo said in a statement. “Any decision impinging on Hong Kong’s autonomy and freedoms as guaranteed under the Sino-British Joint Declaration and the Basic Law would inevitably impact our assessment of One Country, Two Systems and the status of the territory.”
" How do you know that there are no consequences?
You're going to find out .. China will find out. "
White House trade and manufacturing policy advisor Peter Navarro appears on Fox News to discuss the administration’s outlook toward China and the intense focus to bring critical manufacturing back to the U.S.
Earlier in the day a visibly angered President Trump told Maria Bartiromo he “doesn’t want to talk to China right now”, and Navarro highlights exactly why.
All administration policy and economic influence is targeted to remove Chinese manufacturing from U.S. supply chain. President Trump officials openly discussing an intentional U.S. effort to decouple from China is a significant shift.
“This is the most dangerous adversary we have ever faced.”
Congressman Waltz said in a video he tweeted earlier this week:
"Every month, me included as a National Guardsman, we contribute to this 401K-style plan. Well guess what? Billions of dollars from it are going over to Beijing and funding Chinese shipbuilding, plane building and all types of companies. Many of which are close to the Chinese Communist Party, some of which are even on the U.S. sanctions lists."
"We cannot have the American military who’s out on the frontlines retirement account funding their biggest adversary in the 21st Century. America, we need to wake up.
We are in a Cold War with China, they are certainly in one with us. And we would be no more funding their industry through our retirement than we would the Soviet Union and companies in Russia years ago. We need to think about this differently and this has got to stop."
