Trump takes major leap in defense of human rights, moves to ban China slave labor products

Sept. 9, 2020, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in response to the Trump Administration and U.S. Customs & Border Protection moving to block the importation of some Chinese products produced with child and/or slave labor:

“By seeking to block importation of Chinese agriculture and other products produced using child or slave labor , President Trump is taking a great leap forward in defense of human rights. The decades-long abuse by the Chinese government of its people has been well-chronicled by the U.S. Department of Labor report on Childhood and Slave Labor. The President is taking the ground-breaking first step of holding these Chinese slavers accountable.

“Now the president needs to move aggressively to end U.S. investment in Chinese assets through our retirement funds and stock markets. This is why Americans for Limited Government is pushing the project.

“President Trump’s courage in taking on the Chinese slave trade and their Wall Street enablers is a game changer and the world should applaud him.”
