Trump Admin Closes Radio Station Controlled by Chinese Communist Party

The Trump administration has shut down a radio station that was being controlled by the Chinese Communist Party’s propaganda arm.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

A radio station controlled by the Chinese Communist Party propaganda outlet Phoenix TV has been ordered by the Trump administration to cease its broadcasts within 48 hours.

The Federal Communications Commission ruled on Monday that a Mexico-based radio station owned in part by Phoenix TV—one of the Communist regime’s leading propaganda organs—must end its broadcasts due to its failure to disclose its ties to China.

Prior to the FCC’s ruling, the station was exploiting a loophole that allows content produced in the United States to be broadcast from foreign radio towers, such as those in Mexico. Phoenix TV, which is headquartered in California, produced its content domestically and then used the more powerful Mexican station to broadcast across the U.S. border.

The FCC denied a license for that radio station, XEWW-AM, because it “failed to include in their application a key participant, Phoenix Radio, which produces the Mandarin programming in its studio,” the agency disclosed. Phoenix Radio, Phoenix TV’s radio affiliate, was using the station to broadcast Chinese propaganda across Southern California, in violation of FCC statutes.

The station drew attention to itself when one of its reporters asked President Trump a question at a White House press briefing. It raised concerns regarding the reach of Chinese controlled press in the United States.

Now if the President will shut down the AMC theaters who are owned by the Chinese I will be happy. In fact, shut down, sell everything and give it to either the national debt or to people who have been harmed by the virus.
That ought to get their attention as to how bad they acted during the covid 19.

Now, kick all Chinese Nationals (professional and student) out of the U.S. Void ALL VISAs for ALL Chinese, seize ALL Chinese assets in the U.S. and then, KICK THE U.N. OFF U.S. SOIL AND BAN ALL U.N. OFFICIALS FROM ENTERING THE U.S.

I am so proud of the President to shut down Chinese Communist radio. He should shut down anything and everything that is run or owned by the Chinese, they hate us and shouldn’t be allowed to profit or use their propaganda in our Country ! We need to buy all we can of Made in America products and cut out Made in China products !

Good going Mr. Trump! I hope all Chinese owned businesses will be forced to sell to Americans and then go home! This includes meat packing plants, Hollywood studios etc. We should also take back the Panama Canal that Pres. Carter gave back to the Panamanians who then sold to the Chinese. Idiots!
