  • He hasn’t shown interest in human rights violation allegations

President Donald Trump appears poised to sign a measure that would punish Chinese officials for imprisoning more than one million Muslims in internment camps, as he looks to rebuke Beijing over its crackdown in Hong Kong and its response to the coronavirus.

Representative Michael McCaul of Texas, the top Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, told reporters he expects the president will sign the bill, which won broad bipartisan support in Congress. The measure would require Trump to sanction any officials found responsible for the Muslims’ oppression and revoke their visas.

“We fully anticipate within a matter of days that the president will sign this,” McCaul said on a conference call.

Separately, Trump told reporters he would hold a news conference on Friday where he would announce what the administration would do “with respect to China” after the country moved to pass national security legislation expected to curb freedoms in Hong Kong.
