President Trump Calls Out China’s Political Correctness

The President issued a statement via White house Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders:

President Donald J. Trump ran against political correctness in the United States. He will stand up for Americans resisting efforts by the Chinese Communist Party to impose Chinese political correctness on American companies and citizens.

On April 25, the Chinese Civil Aviation Administration sent a letter to 36 foreign air carriers, including a number of American carriers. This notice demanded that carriers change how “Taiwan,” “Hong Kong,” and “Macao” are identified on their websites and in their promotional material so that the references fall in line with the Communist Party’s standards.

This is Orwellian nonsense and part of a growing trend by the Chinese Communist Party to impose its political views on American citizens and private companies.

China’s internal Internet repression is world-famous.  China’s efforts to export its censorship and political correctness to Americans and the rest of the free world will be resisted.

The United States respects the broad freedom private companies have in their interactions with their customers, both in the United States and abroad. This respect is essential for a robust global marketplace.

The United States strongly objects to China’s attempts to compel private firms to use specific language of a political nature in their publicly available content.

We call on China to stop threatening and coercing American carriers and citizens.

Everything made in China sucks. Garbage material. Saw some imports from Poland yesterday and was awed by the quality of their fabric. Out with China. In with Poland.

Communist China is determined to impose its Communist errors on the rest of the world. America must close the door on China and its repressive, anti-God policies. China plays God with its people, controlling them in every way. Now they are bold enough to seek to impose their will on Americans and the rest of the world. China needs a reality check.
Keep praying for Donald Trump. We love you, Donald Trump. May God bless you, President Trump; and, may God bless America.

I wish that we could stop all imports from China. I used to be able to buy a pair of shoes and wear them home from the store. Can’t now since most of them come from China.

If you read the small print, it must say country of origin. What makes me unhappy is when it’s “assembled” . I never eat food from China. They overuse pesticides and you don’t want to know what they use for fertilizer. There are a lot of internet sites that sell Made In America products. americansworking is one.

Definitely agree! We CAN HELP President Trump in a BIG way IF we stop buying products from China. I’ve been trying to think of a way to help in MY way and this is a perfect way to back up our President and any other thing that WE as a country can “ban” would be of GREAT help to our President. These “witch hunts” MUST END!!

We may have to quit shopping at the big box stores such as Target, Walmart, etc. Although I see even they are importing items from places other than China.

He is correct. The U.S. airlines and companies should be able to refer to Taiwan in any way they choose, and the communist Chinese Government should have no say about it.

It is a fact that the American Companies, that went to China for business have allowed the Chinese to steal their Technical information. That information belonged to America, not China. This process has been used against our businesses and against our military.

The issue involved does not mean that when China’s Communist Government lets individual Chinese design and build products I need, I should not buy them; the issue is one involving a Chinese Government wanting to make Hong Kong and Taiwan look like they are already absorbed into the political process controlled by the Communist Party that tolerates no opposition. But, everyone knows that individualism thrives best when not over-regulated by political expense; and when some in Mainland China want to think that because Taiwan believes in a One China policy that it favors the same kind of government as in the mainland to run Taiwan. What Taiwanese want is to rejoin when multiple political parties in the Mainland share policy making decisions being debated in public – not just among the current dictator’s mind. Looking one way and acting the other starting decades after the Revolution’s end in 1949 has worked well. Soon they will discover government control fails without controlling the whole world. This is why some now want to make the first of many global steps, before their first major plan failure that is due.

China needs to accept how we do things if they want our business, otherwise, we need to quit servicing China with our airlines. We don’t ask them to change their nation for us. Someday, the people will rise up and fight against the pressures and restrictions they live under. Life in Russia has eased in someways from how it was under the Communist rule of the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s. People who learn that the outside world is not suppressed in the manner that they are seem to get to the point where they fight back. I’m pretty sure Americans would not put up with only being allowed 1 child and having a choice of an abortion or being shipped off to desolate farm land if you have a second child to basically never get ahead and fight just to stay alive and raise your children. I strongly believe that we need to do all that we can to encourage companies to return to America. When I buy things like clothing, I always check the tags to see where it was made and reject items made in China no matter how much I like it. Would much prefer to do without and I think more and more people are beginning to do that.

Thank you < Janet. I appreciate your viewpoints and agree with them completely. We Americans need to wake up and be very involved in the political decisions. We need to let Congress know loud and strong what we believe should be done. Most of all we must back our President. He has saved us from the NEW WORLD ORDER. i.e. One World Government with No Consitution and NO Bill of Rights.

Chinese products have been shoved down our throats for years & years. We became stupid and continue to buy their products because they are cheap and of very poor quality. Stop buying and do without. Staring with Wal Mart who advertised that everything was USA made. Bull they only sell China made…. Wake up people and read labels before you buy….

If the airlines fold to China’s wishes, they’ll soon have to fold to the wishes of Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macao. Who knows what China might be called when the dust settles. One thing’s certain. It needs to be consistent across the globe for all flight operations in order to ensure passenger safety.

Consistency is one world order new-speak, like ” normalization” wtf is that? ” Transformation” maybe we like the USA the way it can be under strong leadership. Not bowing to their idea of consistency is what keeps USA a sovereign country.

why are you involve HK and Macau? these two provinces already under china rule since they were forcefully taken from china during boxer rebellious, foreign nations took over inland china. by that error, japanese were taken advantage on china’s weakness. american had to rescue china under general doolittle force called private airforce flying tiger, funded by on other than chiang kai shek while mao regrouped deep china interior. taiwan is also province of china until chiang kai shek took over taiwan by force. if you ask any taiwanese, they hate the mainlander occupied their land after WWII. i was stationed at CCK joint taiwan and US force agreement. i visited china as missionary since 1989. sorry to say, there are religion freedom there than the last eight years for Christian under black ex usurper. aren’t our real purpose to live is to reach the lost souls for Christ? didn’t we once scorn japanese inferior product in the 50/60? china was close door nation until nixon went there 1975. i buy america made before i choose chinese product. i’m vietnam vet 1967-68 purple heart recipient, bien hoa AFB 3FMS.

When we beat the Japanese in world war II and saved the Chinese people from the conquering Japanese military forces and their enslavement to the Japanese government, you would have thought the Chinese government would have been appreciative of our sacrifice of blood to liberate them from the Japanese. Not so. Today the Chinese think that they are unstoppable in their quest for world dominance. To them I say,” you will be stopped in every way possible, you will lose.” Martin Korab

that’s a false hollow prediction. if you can find a bridge to cross from liberal california state to hawaii, i will by it in three dollar bills. let me correct you how chinese view american made product. their first buy is german car, second japanese car, third american made. if you take union cost on top each car made, it may make it affordable for world wide distribution. for me i have tow foreign made, 2017 GTI and MGB GT classic. thanks for your inaccurate. by the way, chinese doesn’t hate american, it hates the rhetoric from previous administration. it takes two to tango, so chinese leader do want to be player in good standing. i was there as missionary since 1989. i know what i’m talking about. black exusurper was the one allowed technology transfer as he did for russia.

On May 6th, 2012, our house burned down. We rebuilt. One day I was at Home Depot of Lowes buying 50 needed items. I was there 5 hours looking for the correct stuff. I brought it all home. 20 of those 50 items I had to bring back as broken or malfunction in some way. A few were from India but most were made in china. Millions and millions of items, including most of our vehicle replacement parts are made in China. Not supporting Chinese shoddy manufacture is ok, but 100% of us will have to buy something made in China sooner or later, probably sooner…..bet me.

From Atheism. Sad that some believe this life ends For those of us who believe and obey God, we “walk through the valley of the shadow of death” and our spiritual self is immediately with Him in heaven. It will be so glorious and it goes on “without end” “To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord”
But not for non-believers. Hopefully some of them will learn this truth and change their ways.

How do we stop Soros? He’s buying global politics to try to change the world to serve his own interests. He makes me think of the character Goldfinger and others in the James Bond movies who had some masterful scheme to take over the world. He is a disgrace to the nation that did so much for him. First he tries buying politics in eastern Europe, now in America.
I think Melania’s speech was wonderful and inspiring in a positive way.

If the left can “jump” up in a flash to protest why doesn’t the right and this topic would be a great one to protest. It’s time we stood out. Buy only American made; that means MADE not just assembled. Come on folks, lets make a difference. You may pay a bit more but you will have quality. Nothing like something truly Made In America. God Bless our manufacturers.
