What would you say to millions of American dollars going to fund Chinese military contractors and human rights abusers? In light of the outbreak, President Trump is trying to block the federal pension funds from investing in opaque Chinese stocks. Could it serve as a prelude to a larger scale of the U.S. investment exiting China?

Could Trump’s strategy of economic distancing be exactly what the CCP fears most? I discussed these questions with Curtis Ellis, policy director of America First Policies.
