China sanctions Pompeo, other Trump officials as his term ends

China imposed sanctions on former Secretary of State Michael Pompeo and other Trump administration officials just as Joe Biden was being inaugurated as president, hitting back at the outgoing team while leaving open the possibility of warmer ties with their successors.To get more China breaking news, you can visit shine news official website.

Also on the list of 28 people being sanctioned were former President Donald Trumps national security adviser Robert OBrien and his deputy Matt Pottinger, trade adviser Peter Navarro, and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Kelly Craft, according to a statement issued Wednesday by Chinas Foreign Ministry as the inauguration for Biden was taking place. They and their families will be banned from entering China, Hong Kong or Macau, or doing business with China.

The officials listed were instrumental in shaping the Trump administrations more confrontational stance toward China, which included a raft of sanctions and a declaration, on its final day, that the government had committed genocide in its Xinjiang region. Also on the list were former Trump adviser Steve Bannon and former national security adviser John Bolton.

The officials planned, promoted and executed a series of crazy moves which have gravely interfered in Chinas internal affairs, undermined Chinas interests, offended the Chinese people, and seriously disrupted China-U.S. relations, the foreign ministry said in a statement.

Although Biden and his team are unlikely to match the harsh rhetoric leveled by Pompeo and other Trump administration officials, they have indicated they arent ready to ease tensions as much as Chinas leaders would want.Retired Gen. Lloyd Austin, Bidens nominee for secretary of defense, said in a written submission for his confirmation hearing on Tuesday that the new administration will view China as our most serious global competitor and, from a defense perspective, the pacing threat in most areas.

The same day, Bidens pick for secretary of state, Antony Blinken, said at his hearing that China is the most significant challenge of any nation state to the United States in terms of our interests, the interests of the American people.But he said he saw some room for cooperation when it is in our mutual interest. Bidens transition team has said it hopes to forge some agreement with China on climate change and nuclear arms control.

Those targeted by Chinas sanctions on Wednesday are likely to wear the restrictions as a badge of honor. Pompeo, who railed against China in a string of tweets in recent days, may boast of his tough stance in a future political campaign.

Ive been sanctioned by the Communist Chinese government for nasty behavior, Bolton tweeted Wednesday. Great news for an inauguration day! I accept this prestigious recognition of my unrelenting efforts to defend American freedom.

Its not the first time China has sanctioned top U.S. officials. In July, the country announced sanctions on Republican Sens. Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and other officials over what the foreign ministry said was interference in Chinas internal affairs.
