Trump issues executive order aimed at preventing American companies from investing in Chinese military

President Donald Trump’s first term is in its waning months, but that doesn’t mean he’s stopped fighting for America’s interests.

Trump has issued an executive order barring American investments into Chinese firms that the country’s military controls or owns, Breitbart reported. This order comes after it was discovered that federal employees’ retirement funds were partially invested in Chinese military-building companies.

“Today, President Donald J. Trump signed an Executive Order to protect American investors from funding Communist Chinese military companies, including those designated by the Department of Defense in June and August of 2020,” National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien said Thursday in a statement. He added that “individual investors in the United States can unknowingly provide funds to them through passive institutional investment vehicles such as mutual funds and retirement plans.”

The problem is that these investments would funnel money to a nation that often operates in direct opposition to the interests of the U.S.

O’Brien warned that the companies use investors’ cash to enhance “the capabilities of the People’s Liberation Army and People’s Republic of China intelligence services, which routinely target American citizens and businesses through cyber operations, and directly threaten the critical infrastructure, economy, and military of America and its allies and partners around the world.”

Indiana Rep. Jim Banks, Florida Rep. Mike Waltz and other Republicans sounded the alarm about the federal employees’ Thrifts Savings Plan possibly having capital investments in Russia and China. Labor Secretary Eugene Scalia further investigated the matter with Trump calling on the plan’s board to no longer invest funds that included those nations.

The new executive order effectively broadened that prohibition, cutting off the overseas boon for the unfriendly nation. Trump said in the executive order that China was “exploiting United States capital” to beef up its military technology and fire power to further threaten our nation.

Trump has been tough on China throughout his administration. The president levied tariffs on the Asian nation, but eventually brokered a favorable trade deal in exchange for easing the taxes. Relations were improving until it became apparent that the coronavirus pandemic likely originated and spread from Wuhan, although this newest executive order is national security rather than public health.

In contrast, there are unanswered accusations that President-elect Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden and even the former vice president himself possibly profited from the Communist nation. It’s unclear what the future of relations between the U.S. and China would be in a Biden/Harris administration in light of that possibility.

I WOULD VOTE FOR TRUMP TO BE KING TODAY. HE IS THE MOST FAIR AND HONEST MAN THAT WE HAVE EVER HAD AS PRESIDENT AND HE IS NOT OBLIGATED TO ANYONE AND BEING A FORMER DEMOCRAT THIS WAS HARD FOR ME TO SAY, ROOSEVELT AND KENNEDY IS IN MY LIFE SPAN. THIS MAN HAS ONLY THE UNITED STATES INTEREST AT HEART AND IS RICH ENOUGH HE CANNOT BE BOUGHT LIKE BIDEN AND MOST IN WASHINGTON HAS BEEN. THAT IS WHY THEY ARE TRYING SO HARD TO GET RID OF HIM, AFRAID HE WILL BRING IT ALL OUT.

Perhaps now we will finally learn to use a stamp on items created in this Country, with the label of “Made in America”. This allows us to become totally self-sufficient. Not having to depend on other nations to provide our needs.
If we got the products, then let the others come here to get their needs, rather than us going there to fulfill our needs.

The caveat, is that if Biden actually grabs the helm of this Country, everything becomes null. He will destroy everything that is/was good. He will destroy your lifestyles, and everything that our Heritage represents. Just watch the banana boats quickly arrive in out ports. Watch the quality products we once made, disappear. Watch our skills to innovate and build go down the tubes.

Our only solution to that problem is a hold-fast stubborn “I will not comply!” motto. Our jobs will not be given to Caucasians, they will go only to illegal border busters. And when Joe’s brain goes to mush, Komarad Kamala will take the helm. Her tornado will be like two storms in one. “I will not comply”!

I have lived through many Presidential elections and I was willing to live under who was elected whether or not it was my choice. However I am totally scared of living under Joe Biden’s win. All the signs of today, prove to me that we will not have a leader who will continue to improve America. He will just be a puppet under the far left who are out to destroy this country. God help us–it will be a tough ride.

That is exactly how he would manage matters. The interest of the country is the last thing on his mind. What a shame, such people are trying to get into power, and mislead supporters are even voluntarily ready to help destruction.
Check my website where you find much data on communism, etc… I lived through those times in central Europe, eventually became a “political refugee.” It is quite a detailed 6-part series, you’ll find all explained from” A-Z.”
I tried to place articles to the top of the site for easier location of those…
To all, best regards!

Mr. TRUMP will never give up.
AL the votes must be counted again.
Very closely supervised and the infamous program used in the elections to count the votes must have it program dissected line by line and the TRUTH will come out.
Mathematically, it is impossible for a correct election to behave like this one did.
Every good mathematician with the data available can put the results of the election in a graphic form which clearly shows that in the contested state’s fraud happened on a grand scale
M. Trump predicted this, he knows this , we know this.
The only thing we must not do now is to not loose faith and give up.
The Biden’s know this, that the more time goes by the people calm down and loose interest.
The 70 ,,millions of chumps and deplorable baskets should never give up supporting the one who does good for this country
NEVER NO MATTER WHAT IT TAKES AND NO MATTER WHAT WE NEED TO SACRIFICE

I noticed that people don’t understand that there will not be a 2024 election for Republicans if the communists win. Nor any other upcoming elections. Marxism/communism is a one-party system in which Republican Party=freedom is the major enemy.  They change the constitution and destroy their enemies in the first place.  Communism is dictatorship. How it functions is written in the history of Marxism which also answers why this regime lasts forever, e.g. Soviet communism 40 years, China 70 years.

I cannot understand why these people have not been charged previously. I heard about Hillary Clinton’s connections with China a long time ago and she should have been charged then. Charges should also be brought against Mr. Biden.

I feel when voter fraud is found that automatically Joe Biden be disqualified and the presidency for the next four years go to President Trump. Biden is a lame duck and the Democratic party knows it. It’s Kamala Harris the far left want to run the country. She’s pure evil and our country’s best interests are not hers, Pelosi’s or any of the other henchmen’s agenda with Obama in the lead. What some others above have commented about them being charged with treason is very truly stated. What these Democrats are ignorant of is the fact when they put our nation in bed with the heathen nations …… well….. when those heathen nations have gotten their fill of the adulterous relationship, they will turn on the ignorant leftists like any man does when he’s done with his mistress.

Personally, I am delighted that our President Trump has continued to stay active regarding China and Russia, they are doing everything they can to take over and the United States, thru our Politicians. Our Politicians went against America and have never stopped hurting the American Citizen. Take down these two country’s before they take us down. Get rid of the rivalry that is happening in our country thru the present Politicians. Your the only one that can do this.
