President Trump has come out in full force against the Chinese Communist Party, much to the dismay of Democrats attempting to appease the Chinese regime.
The Trump administration announced on Friday that the Treasury Department is dropping the hammer on the Chinese Communist Party’s operations in Xinjiang, in the form of hefty economic sanctions.
Xinjian is the once-autonomous region where the CCP has been engaged in brutal cultural genocide against Uyghur Muslims. According to reports, those identified as Uyghur Muslims are subject to invasive surveillance, herded into camps, and forced to undergo sterilizations and abortions.
The Daily Caller reported:
The sanctions pertain to China’s Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps (XPCC), a paramilitary group which operates much of the economy of Xinjiang and orchestrates the persecution of minorities, according to Axios.
The sanctions also hit Sun Jinlong and Peng Jiarui, two high-level CCP members who have held senior positions within the XPCC, according to Treasury Department press release.
Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin affirmed in a statement that “the United States is committed to using the full breadth of its financial powers to hold human rights abusers accountable in Xinjiang and across the world.”
President Trump has amped up the pressure on China in recent weeks for a number of the Chinese’ government’s disastrous and dangerous actions, such as the mishandling of COVID-19, infringing on Hong Kong’s autonomy, and the horrifying oppression of the Uyghur Muslims.
While Trump has taken bold action to punish China for violating the human rights of its citizens, Democrats in the US government continue to run cover for the CCP, refusing to acknowledge China’s blatant misdeeds.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) lauded China as a “respectable nation” during a Senate hearing on Thursday, despite the CCP’s well-documented abuse of its own people and disregard for its fellow global citizens.
