Trump continues crackdown on Chinese government in final days of administration

As President Trump prepares to exit the White House ahead of Wednesday’s inauguration of incoming President Joe Biden, he’s still busy ensuring that his agenda of pushing back against China will be protected.

Trump ordered on Friday that federal agencies must find ways to reduce their dependence on Chinese goods and services as concerns of Chinese espionage and infiltration increase. 

Striking a blow

Though rarely reported by mainstream media outlets, President Trump has strongly opposed the Chinese Communist Party’s influence for years, ramping up his punitive measures against the Chinese government within the last year due to COVID-19.

National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien announced in a statement on Friday that “Trump directed departments and agencies to review applicable laws, regulations, and policies and to propose regulatory and policy changes, including potential executive actions, to minimize the procurement of People’s Republic of China (PRC) goods and services by the Federal Government.”

Trump’s goals in ordering the policy changes are to prevent “technical and human espionage activities directed at the Federal Government,” O’Brien said. “Today, President Trump took another step to do just that.”

President Trump also continues to pressure China on the issue of the abuse of the Muslim-majority Uyghur ethnic group, recently banning the import of cotton or tomato products from China’s Xinjiang province, where Uyghurs are primarily located and enslaved.

Destroying Trump’s legacy

The Trump administration has long fingered the Chinese government as one of the greatest threats to the US’s national security, though incoming President Joe Biden does not appear to agree.

In fact, leftists have pounced on Biden as the perfect candidate to reverse the aggressive pushback against the communist giant, with The Atlantic arguing that Biden should focus on “scaling back punitive and self-defeating tariffs and technological barriers, slowing the arms race with China, and abandoning efforts to encircle the mainland with a hostile ring of military alliances” as his priorities in formulating his diplomatic relations with China.

Biden himself has given few clues about his true intentions in regard to China, but if his time in the Obama administration is any indication of how Biden will approach China, the outlook isn’t good for those worried about the rising power.

Sure, Biden has said in the past that he plans to “get tough” with China, but has also criticized Trump’s actually tough approach at every turn.

Biden wrote in the March/April 2020 edition of Foreign Affairs that the US needs to cooperate with China on “issues where our interests converge, such as climate change, [nuclear] nonproliferation, and global health security,” while still confronting “China’s abusive behaviors and human rights violations.”

However, Biden still hasn’t provided a plan to confront China’s behavior, making it unlikely that he will allow the Trump administration’s pattern of aggressive crackdown.

  1. THIS COUNTRY IS FINISHED TO BE THE FREE AND PROSPEROUS COUNTRY THAT HAD BEEN CREATED BY THE ENGLISH WITH GOD’S HELP AND BLESSING!!

    THE UNITED STATES UNDER GOD, NO LONGER EXISTS. NOT TOO FAR FROM
    NOW THIS COUNTRY WILL BE COMPLETELY GONE FROM THE FACE OF
    THE EARTH.

    1. I am a non-denominational CHRISTian that goes to Calvary Chapel in the United States 🇺🇸 and listens to the international CHRISTian Satellite Network 7 days a week. I even heard its programs in Germany 🇩🇪 and Hungary 🇭🇺 !

      I LIVED in , NOT visited communist China 🇨🇳 in 2010 to teach English. So I KNOW how bad communism is and am doing EVERYthing I can here to stop it from coming here. Venezuela WAS a wealthy, prosperous country until it became communist as a 3rd world country with people eating out of garbage cans !!! In China, I attended a university that not only can one get a master’s degree in Marxism, but it had a statue of Chairman Mao in its front yard. ( I was fortunate to stumble upon ONE toilet at the university. It had porcelain holes in the ground we had to squat over. Upon entering the front entrance to the university and near the plush 28 story building I lived in, the stench was so bad, you had to hold your nose. Electrical wiring hung from the ceiling of the two buildings too. )

      To quote Eskify, “ Through communist policies he starved millions of people, possibly as many as 80 million. He killed any intellectuals who disagreed with him, he put people in labour camps, and condoned beating and stoning people to death in struggle sessions.“
      I saw the plans of the left on their own letterhead paper to murder us, especially the seniors and disabled, and the vaccines 💉 is just one of the ways. Read the first sentence of the Georgia Guidestones also known as Georgia Stonehenge supported by the left elitists.

      Go to Videos.Utahgunexchange .com and get “The Epic Times” .

      Patriots unite or we will lose our country like China , Cuba, and Venezuela did !!!

  3. We need to stop ALL merchandise coming from China , 1ST of all, GETTING INTO THE US, 2ND ANY BUYING OF ANYTHING FROM CHINA. That will be MUCH BETTER FOR US.

  4. Biden is a Chinese Trojan Horse. He is owned and controlled by the Chinese, Xi Jinping, and the Chinese Communist Party. The United States will gradually disappear and become “another product” controlled by the Chinese under Biden’s “presidency”. He gets angry when asked about his or his son’s business dealings with China. The truth has already come out and been ignored by the talking heads of the liberal media and the tech giants. I have more but that is just the beginning. BE AFRAID AND BE WARE OF BIDEN AND XI JINPING!

    1. Agree Biden, his son, his b brother and his wife have all enjoyed the “Money Flow” from China to their family! This should not be happening in America! TREASON IS THE WORD FOR ALL OF THEM INCLUDING THE CLINTONS AND OBAMAS!

      1. Most Americans will agree that the Biden’s, Obama’s, Clinton’s and other elites are in bed with China. The only way I can change anything is by vote and prayer.

  5. Biden is one dangerous fool. Looks like China will be so glad that Joe and son are on Chinas list. This demon, Joe and Hunter are not Americans and they need to be ousted out of our country pronto.This all was a set up for the Chinese.We had best be armed and ready as all hell will come soon!!

  6. It has been prophesied that in the last days our constitution will hang by a thread. WE are there folks. These are the last days and if I were a thinking person, I would repent NOW. We can prolong the end if we only follow the commandments of God. Do it now.

  7. My sister is a DEVOUT follower of the Bible. I kept telling her the world would only come to an end would be if Trump “LOST” the election. Now I think she might be on to something. SO I AM GETTING READY FOR “THE END TIMES”, just in CASE she is RIGHT!

  8. We’ve already lost the battle to control the Communist Chinese infiltration of our Republic. They have their ace in the the hole, a Biden/Harris led American Government. Actually, I should rephrase my comment, a Communist Chinese led American Government! China is no longer our enemy, very shortly we’ll probably be annexed by the Communist Chinese Government and our Republic will no longer exist. I wonder how much the Chinese spent to buy the corrupt Democrats and Republican Traitors? I’ll bet that it wasn’t too much!
    We can no longer trust this government, media and even, Public Social Websites! Our, so called, Militias are nothing more than Social Clubs and all too many Americans would rather watch the game or, something else on the TV rather than to take a stand against our enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC!

    1. My bones are aching… there is something brewing in the wind…… what can it be? Oh my….. the wind is calling… US Citizens… STAND UP and FIGHT to remain a FREE NATION. Suppose these are echo’s from those (now deceased) who defended America’s freedoms?

    1. Biden became president by fraud just like Obama did in his second term. I can and never will respect fraudulent people. Biden is a trojan horse and will resign within a year so Harris will become President and Pelosi VP. After 1 year of Biden and 3 years of Harris/Pelosi… the people will be praying for Trump to return.

  9. Really can‘t believe that Biden will become the President of the United States. How can Americans be so stupid ? In my opinion he is about the most dangerous Presidential candidate living in America ! How many of those who voted for him had any idea that they have literally destroyed America‘s future? In about a month, they will be able to see which way we are headed. And these ignorant voters will find out that returning America to its previous greatness will be next to impossible . . China just might control us . . just think about that.

    1. People believe Democrats propaganda. Democrats always promising the moon until they are elected and then you don’t even see the stars.. Everyone is out for freebies… Nothing is free is is always paid for if not now then later.

  10. I think that we need to investigate the Biden administration, it will need to be investigated for ties to the CCP. After all any administration that would knowingly put a Chinese spy on an intelligence committee needs extreme scrutiny. A good place to start would be Pelosi, as it would seem that her decision making needs to be questioned, and her actions need to be look into. She has wasted weeks when people needed help just for political gain while people were suffering and yes even dying, because she had to have a victory over Trump. She has failed miserable. Her efforts to impeach Trump only amplifies her failures, and her tantrums only put them on display.

  11. I am going to miss Trump!!! Not looking forward to living in a Democratic dictatorship!!! I’m going to keep praying that God has strategy to fix this mess

  12. no one voted for him, fraud, bogus ballots, there is proof

    fox cnn msnbc facebook twit amazon all in on it

    soreoos, murdocks many many others supreme court… judges
    the truth will come out history will name them

    they belong in prison, tar and feathers it’s a COUP bloody COUP

  13. When conservatives get ready to march again, they will need to keep an eye out for the Biden SS goonies ( BLM and Antifuka ) as they will again try to infiltrate, and cause more trouble. Only next time if they try to start something, let them while you walk away. Make sure you have plenty of cameras, and take pictures of them so that they can be identified. Send the pictures to your email so that if the police get your camera the pictures don’t disappear. Evidence has a away of disappearing with police or the FBI.

  14. There was a lot of banners Saturday along 380 in front of Costco in McKinney, Tx. About the Chinese communist party. I wondered what that was about. I don’t believe any of this was on the news!!!

  15. Dems don’t know what a life is, because they got no brain. Cannot buy one cause the store ran out, put on backorder. Problem is that the stupid brainless Dems working in the brain factory went on strike. They went on strike, because they were not making enough to buy brains. When they got enough they went to the store only to find out that Biden had raised the price.

  16. Dems, Repubs. all are establishment politicians, and there in is the real problem. You see people think that Trump was elected to drain the swamp. That is not true, as he can not do that. What he was elected to do was expose the people in the swamp, which he did quite well. Now they are out in the open it is up to we the people to clean up the swamp. I mean all of the parties ( Dems, Repubs, Indys ).

  17. The snipers are going after the wrong target. They should be going after the big tech ceos and the [email protected] media ceos.Get rid of them and you will have crippled the democrats, and the Biden SS ( BLM, Antifuka ). The media and the news outlets [email protected] the information to each other, and the tr00ps in the field. So if you take them out you get their main communication link.

  18. The main part of the Supreme Court’s job is OVERSIGHT, and if someone or some state is violating the constitution, then the court should step in, whether or not there is a complaint or brief filed in a lower court or the high court directly. If the court is not doing this, then the court is not doing the due diligence it is suppose to do, to protect the constitution. And if the court is not going to do its job, then it is up to we the people to do the job, and if we have to do the job then we just as well fire the court, we are the only ones that can. It makes no difference if a judge is conservative or liberal if the judge does not follow the constitution. The constitution was not put there to protect the administration, the legislature, or the court, it was put there to protect we the people, from the government period, by putting in guide lines for the government to follow. When the government does not want to follow, then we the people have the right and the power to change or remove the government. I think that the court gets so tongue tied with the literal meaning of the law that it forgets what the most important part of its job is. OVERSIGHT.

    Since officials in a number of states have taken it upon themselves to make laws with out the legislative bodies in those states, that the constitution gives the legislative bodies the power to do. They are ignoring the constitution, and need to be reigned in. It is past time for the SCROTUS to do its due diligence, and step in, if the SCROTUS does not wish to do so, then we the people will have to do the job of the court, and we will not need the court.
    Liberals think that they can change the laws just by wishing it, and that is wrong. That is the way kings, queens, tyrants, and dictators rule. and that is why our forefathers wrote the constitution, to keep the corrupt from getting in power in government. That is why we have come to the point of needing to set term limits and to remove immunity that protects those that would try to abuse their position by creating greater transparency in the government.

    Just like they did with the Hunter Biden scandal, the fake news and the media, are covering up what states are doing to hide the evidence. It is not only in the so-called battle ground states. The governors and judges, and election officials in these states, are violating the law and the constitution of the United States, by making laws illegally, and suppressing the evidence, by refusing to allow ballots, and machines to be investigated. As much as I hate to say this the Supreme Court is condoning this behavior, by not enforcing the constitution. This is their job, to protect the constitution by enforcing it. The Supreme Courts job of oversight does not end because a case is not filed in a lower court. There is nothing in the constitution that says the Supreme Court it’s self cannot call on the DOJ or Superior Court to take action on such matters, and for it not to do so is negligence.
    As I have said before and will repeat.

    WE DON’T NEED MORE GOVERNMENT, WE NEED TO CONTROL THE GOVERNMENT WE HAVE.

    U.S. Code Section 242 of Title 18, Deprivation of rights under color of law, makes it a crime for a person acting under color of any law to willfully deprive a person of a right or privilege protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States.
    For the purpose of Section 242, acts under “color of law” include acts not only done by federal, state, or local officials within the their lawful authority, but also acts done beyond the bounds of that official’s lawful authority, if the acts are done while the official is purporting to or pretending to act in the performance of his/her official duties.

    Some states have gotten the idea that they can just change laws because they want to. However that is not the case, when a state becomes a state they sign on to the constitution and the bill of rights, and all of the laws contained with in the constitution. These are the over riding laws of the land, and apply to all states, and can not be just dismissed out of hand by any state governor, state legislature, or any state official, or local officials. It does not work that way. The constitution and the bill of rights can not be changed by any government body be it federal state or local. Changes to the constitution and the bill of rights can only be made by we the people. Not with E.O. or legislation by any governing body, or any whim of someone on the supreme court. This is to keep government from usurping the power of the people.

    The supreme Court is “appointed” to oversee the implementation of the constitution, and the protection of the constitution, by enforcing the constitution.
    Lately it would seem that the Supreme Court is neglecting its role of oversight, and enforcement. Which means it is not protecting the constitution.

    The Supreme Court is being negligent in its duty of oversight, of a number of states that have violated the constitution, by letting officials make laws illegally, instead of the legislatures in those states. This falls squarely in the scope of the Supreme Court. Whether or not any complaint has been filed in any other court or the Supreme Court Directly. This is the job of the Supreme Court in its roll of oversight, in the protection of the constitution. I am sorely disappointed by the Supreme Courts actions or lack there of, to do what is necessary to protect the constitution and thereby the country and the people. Trump thought he appointed three conservatives to the Supreme Court, I think he guessed wrong.

  19. Now is, the time to escape the CNN prison, and get to OANN on ATT 208 or NewsMAX on ATT 220 and safety and freedom and fresh air. Must act quickly before it is to late, and you are brainwashed into believing their nonsense and the constant lies that they spew all day long. It must take a lot of stamina to be able to lie like that, and the endurance to be able to keep coming up with all of this crap all day long. “incredible”. and it is really unbelievably stupid. Run to OANN on ATT 208 or NewsMAX on ATT 220 right a way to save your freedom of speech and thought and beliefs and get some fresh air and honest reporting. It is essential that you do so right now, save your sanity.

  20. Communism=Democrat=Nazi=Rhino=BLM=Antifuka
    Democrat=A little critter that lives in a rathole
    Communism=Russia+China
    Nazi=another name for a communist
    Rhino=A big critter that runs around with a horn up its a$$
    BLM=Burn, Loot, Murder little kids squad
    Antifuka=Anti Fukin American
    This is Amazon new business model, just like the snakes that inhabit that creek.

  21. Texas need to institute its own immigration policy, just as California’s Newson does. Besides with all these states making their own elect laws, I think we should make our own immigration laws. The Supreme Court isn’t going to do any thing any, cause it doesn’t have any standing.

  22. When, will Trump be making a trump impeachment coin. I know that you think I am being funny, but it would be a great heirloom, and would really piss Pelosi off, and he could make a mint. At the same time it would rub it in her face, that she tried three times an failed three time, The fact that she did it only amplifies her poor decision making, and her tantrums only put it on display.
