Lawmakers in Washington are trying to compel the Trump administration to take strong measures against Chinese officials for their mass repression of ethnic Uighurs and other Muslims in China. Legislators introduced companion bills on Wednesday in the House and Senate following months of discussions on how to punish China for its treatment of the Uighurs, including sanctioning specific officials and limiting sales of products from American companies to certain Chinese state agencies.

How would Obama have handled the China Uighur internment camp situation? How should Trump handle the ongoing human rights crisis going on right now?

The USA should hit leaders from China, Israel and Myanmar with the same sanctions. It wont change much, but it is all the USA is capable of.

Boaz handles it by "getting popcorn." Because he is a sadistic freak who delights in human misery.

"China's state atheism is cruel."

Athiesm has nothing to do with this. This is ethnic cleansing like Tibet but on steroids.

Of course atheism has something to do with it. Religion is why the Chinese government wants the group cleansed and it is their excuse for doing the deed, following the tried and true Western formula of "Muslim=terrorist."

And here is where Liberals are going to get their minds blown. At one point, China could threaten the US by saying "If you push us about this, we will stop importing your soybean", which would prompt a huge lobbying campaign and ultimately cause America to bend. Now that soybean can't be used as leverage, it's one less thing China can use to continue to abuse human rights.

See that. Does it make anything more clear for you like ensuring America can't be taken advantage of because of bad trade policy? This is just one tiny example since soybean is such a low risk item. Imagine when China has no leverage over us, think about what we could do to pressure them. I know, I know...Liberals will hate this because it means America actually looks good and Liberals want America to fail. But at the very least it is a shining, logical, easy-to-follow-even-to-babies example that can't be argued. Obviously, there is no way at this point we could get back all the leverage from China but every step we make is vital.

Maybe Lawmakers in Washington can also try to compel the Trump administration to take strong measures against repression of legal immigrants and separating families of Refugees at the border, too, while they are at it.
