Trump Admin Bans Chinese Passenger Flights From the US

The Trump administration has banned the entry of Chinese passenger flights into the US.

The move comes as US carriers fight with the Chinese government to resume service to that country.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:


WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Donald Trump’s administration said on Wednesday it will bar Chinese passenger carriers from flying to the United States starting on June 16 as it pressures Beijing to allow U.S. air carriers to resume flights.

The move, announced by the U.S. Department of Transportation, penalizes China after Beijing failed to comply with an existing agreement on flights between the world’s two largest economies. Relations between the two countries have also soured in recent months amid escalating tensions surrounding the coronavirus pandemic.

The order applies to Air China (601111.SS), China Eastern Airlines Corp, China Southern Airlines Co (600029.SS) and Hainan Airlines Holding Co (600221.SS).

Delta Air Lines (DAL.N) and United Airlines (UAL.O) have asked to resume flights to China this month, even as Chinese carriers have continued U.S. flights during the pandemic. Delta said in a statement on Wednesday that “we support and appreciate the U.S. government’s actions to enforce our rights and ensure fairness.” United did not immediately comment.

The Trump administration has accused the Chinese government of making it impossible for the carriers to resume service to China.

We should cut off ALL incoming flights from China and NO flights into China until this mess is solved.

China has enjoyed a free run of this country for far too long all the while filling the pockets for the D.C. Elite. It is time to not only drain the swamp but to eliminate the Scum that is at the bottom of the swamp.
The next step is to remove all Communist Chinese Students from ALL colleges and universities and ship them back to their homeland. They are here not only to get an education but to steel the research that is being done at these colleges. Any and all college or university faculty that has any involvement with the Communist Chinese Government should be removed from their positions. Our Tax Dollars funds the research being conducted at these schools and the Communist Chinese Government benefits form it.
I do not feel that we should isolate ourselves from the rest of the world, but America should be for Americans First.

Cut off China completely. They copy everything and make nothing that isn’t, what they do make is inferior quality or given by us to manufacture. They committed an act of war by developing the Kung Flu and in collusion with the commiecrats unleashed it on us. They also copy our military equipment and are preparing for a gigantic war in the near future in which they can win. They steal all our technology and have what we have in a matter of a few months.They are no damn good !

The next step is to get rid of all Communist Chinese Students that are attending college or universities in this country, especially where any type of research is being conducted. Getting an education is only part of the reason these Communists are here the main reason is to steal any and all research especially where our military and medical research is conducted. My wife is Chinese and she and all of her Chinese friends wouldn’t trust Communist China as far as they could throw a school bus. If anyone mentions something someone from Communist China says they all shake their heads and laugh at the thought of anyone believing it.
