Hit them where it counts.
President Donald Trump knows the old adage well, and he’s doing exactly that to China. And for the communist regime, where it counts is the wallet.
Therefore, President Trump ordered the Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Board “not to go forward with a plan to invest United States federal employees’ retirement savings in an index that includes Chinese firms, some of which are involved in military activities, espionage, and human rights abuses,” Breitbart reported Tuesday.
Thank you @SecGeneScalia for taking quick action on this issue. It’s common sense — US taxpayers shouldn’t be helping build an adversary’s military … and ours at the same time! https://t.co/0b9mqAJULR

According to Breitbart’s report, “Republican members of Congress fought to bring awareness to the problem of American federal workers — including members of the U.S. military — having their funds go towards Chinese firms that build weapons systems for the People’s Liberation Army.”
This is the right move. America cannot be in an economic war with an enemy and still financially support the military of our opponent’s regime.
