Today the U.S. government announced it is adding 28 Chinese companies on the “Entity List” that bars them from trading (buying and selling) in the U.S.
The 28 companies added to the Entity List have been implicated in taking part in oppression or surveillance of Muslim minority people in Xinjiang province.
This is just a small step in the right direction for the United States. Economic and diplomatic pressure should be continued against Chinese businesses until the CCP gives up their oppression in Xinjiang, Tibet, and Hong Kong. The CCP is not afraid to use economic pressure against U.S. businesses (like the NBA); the U.S. still has a much larger economic hammer that can be used against the CCP, and shouldn’t be afraid to use it. Bullying by the CCP should be responded to in kind.
