The Trump administration has a message for the American In Name Only companies that use slave labor to make their products: leave Red China.
This means you, Apple.
Politico reported, “Attorney General William Barr on Thursday criticized corporate America’s relationship with the Chinese Communist Party — while singling out Apple once again as an example of a double standard in how tech companies treat the U.S. government versus Beijing.
“He also hinted at the possibility that American business leaders who advocate for the party’s political interests at its behest could face prosecution under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, a U.S. law that requires people to disclose lobbying for foreign governments.”
Barr said, “The ultimate ambition of China’s rulers isn’t to trade with the United States; it is to raid the United States. If you are an American business leader, appeasing the [People’s Republic of China] may bring short-term rewards. But in the end, the PRC’s goal is to replace you.”
AG Barr: "Every year at the Academy Awards Americans are lectured about how this country falls short of Hollywood’s ideals of social justice. But Hollywood now regularly censors its own movies to appease the Chinese Communist Party." pic.twitter.com/iO2qQjAgte
