Trump is going to have the next administration answer the question to the world about where they stand. I stand for the liberty and human rights of all free citizens be they Muslims in China, or Pro-Democracy citizens in Hong Kong.


WASHINGTON — The U.S. government announced Wednesday that it will halt imports of cotton and tomatoes from the Uighur region of China in its most sweeping action yet to pressure the Communist Party over its campaign against ethnic minorities.

Officials said Customs and Border Protection will use its authority to block products suspected of being produced with forced labour to keep out cotton, tomatoes and related products from the Xinjiang region of northwest China.

Xinjiang is a major global supplier of cotton, so the order could have significant effects on international commerce. The Trump administration has already blocked imports from individual companies linked to forced labour in the region, and the U.S. has imposed sanctions on Communist Party officials with prominent roles in the campaign.

Good move, but that's going to eat into the Biden family profits.

Pre-Islam, Uighurs were already living in the same valley that Han Chinese claim as their original homeland
