The current President of the United States, Donald Trump, intends to introduce new tough measures against China before the end of his presidential term. In this way, he wants to consolidate his legacy on the issue of Washington’s relations with Beijing.
This is reported by Axios, citing sources.
As noted, the Trump administration plans to impose sanctions or trade restrictions on an even larger number of Chinese companies, government agencies, and officials who are involved in human rights abuses and threats to US national security.
As expected, in the near future, the director of national intelligence, John Ratcliffe, will publish information about China’s “dastardly” actions in the United States.
Trump’s entourage, according to the publication, is also discussing the expansion of the sanctions list, which includes Chinese companies associated with the military structures of the PRC.
Earlier, the winner of the US presidential race, Democratic candidate Joe Biden, said that, unlike Donald Trump, he would force China to play by the rules, and the current president does nothing about it.
