Trump Introducing Anti-Chinese Slave Labor Legislation - Republicans Taking Away Liberal's Slaves For The Second Time!
November 6, 1860. In a four-way contest, the Republican Party ticket of Abraham Lincoln and Hannibal Hamlin emerged triumphant over the pro-slavery party of the Democrats. The KKK who endorsed many slavery owning Democrats were devastated after President Abraham Lincoln quickly moved to free their slaves.
For the seconded time in history the Republican Party is moving to stop the Liberals from using slave labor and they are FUMING. The Democrats want open boarders so they can hire illegals to do their dirty work. The NBA, Apple, Microsoft, and countless other pro-Liberal, pro-Social Justice, Trump hating companies still love to use child, and slave labor in China. President Trump is putting a stop to it. Here are the details:
Washington Examiner reported: Sen. Josh Hawley offered legislation aimed at holding responsible companies that rely on slave labor in their supply chains.
The Slave-Free Business Certification Act, introduced by the Missouri Republican on Monday, would require routine independent audits of companies to ensure they are not complicit in forced labor and trafficking in their supply chains.
The Missouri Republican put forth the bill weeks after Congress and the Trump administration pushed for sanctions against Chinese officials related to the country's reported human rights abuse of the Uighur Muslim minority.
President Trump signed bipartisan legislation in May that imposed sanctions on officials in charge of the labor camps the Uighur Muslims in China work in.
Hawley's bill would mandate companies report to the Department of Labor that their supply chains do not depend on slave labor. It also would establish penalties for firms that neglect basic minimum standards for human rights.
Hawley's office referenced over 80 global companies that have reportedly been tied to forced Uighur labor in China, from sportswear companies such as Nike, Adidas, and Puma to tech giants such as Lenovo and Samsung. These issues extend beyond China.
Under the legislation, CEOs would have to certify that their supply chains are free from slave labor or that they have reported all instances of forced labor in their companies.
“Corporate America and the celebrities that hawk their products have been playing this game for a long time — talk up corporate social responsibility and social justice at home while making millions of dollars off the slave labor that assembles their products. Executives build woke, progressive brands for American consumers, but happily outsource labor to Chinese concentration camps, all just to save a few bucks,” Hawley said in a statement. (Read More)
Related from Breitbart: The Times was reacting to Trump signing the Uyghur Human Rights Policy Act on Wednesday, a law that provides for sanctioning Chinese officials involved in the enslavement, torture, and killing of ethnic Uyghurs and other Muslim minorities in China. The law also provides safeguards for Uyghur-Americans harassed and threatened by Chinese agents and punitive measures against domestic companies that benefit from Uyghur slave labor.
hina has kept between 1 million to 3 million Uyghurs, Kazakhs, Kyrgyz people, and other ethnic and religious minorities trapped in concentration camps since at least 2018. China claims they are “vocational training centers” for underprivileged people, though survivors have testified to atrocities occurring in them such as forced labor, rape, forced sterilization, murder, and testing for live organ harvesting.
Trump signed the Act shortly after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met with Chinese Politburo member Yang Jiechi in Hawaii for what Beijing otherwise described as “constructive” talks. The two sides reached no official consensus on any issue.
“This is the first face to face discussions between top Chinese and US diplomats following suspended talks,” the Global Times noted. “But as the Hawaii meeting was being held, Trump also signed the Uygur bill on Wednesday, claiming to protect human rights in Northwest China’s Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.”
“The U.S. has always been good at playing petty tricks. By playing these cards, Washington attempts to exert more pressure on Beijing in a hope to force the latter to make concession during bilateral talks,” the newspaper asserted, claiming Trump’s administration was concerned it would “appear weak on Beijing.”
“If the US keeps playing petty tricks during bilateral talks, China-US cooperation will only be limited to sitting down and moving lips,” the newspaper contended. “In this sense, the US will have to stop dreaming that China will make substantial moves to cooperate.”
The Global Times warned the Trump administration to stop “playing tough” and match its apparent desire for dialogue.
In a separate column citing Communist Party-approved “experts,” the newspaper concluded that dialogue with the Trump administration, while apparently progressing towards tolerance of China’s human rights abuses, did not mean America would “change its tough policies toward China.”
One of the “experts” cited, identified as Jia Chunyang, complained that the American policies were insufficiently friendly to Beijing and Americans “fight while seeking cooperation when it fits their interests.”
“Signing the bill on the same day the bilateral talks take place shows that the U.S. wants to send a signal to China that it will continue putting pressure on China on issues of human rights and religious freedom,” Jia reportedly said. “These sinister tricks make us doubt its sincerity in seeking to improve China-US ties and will also affect cooperation in other fields.” (Read More)
