first_imgSuch a ban, if implemented, could hit the ruling Communist Party from the highest levels down to its rank-and-file and would be certain to draw retaliation against Americans who travel to China. This could include not only diplomats but also business executives, potentially harming US interests in China.Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said earlier such action by the United States, if true, would be “pathetic.”US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo stopped short of confirming it was under consideration but said: “We’re working our way through, under the president’s guidance, about how to think about pushing back against the Chinese Communist Party.”White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany told reporters: “We keep every option on the table with regard to China.” The Trump administration is considering banning travel to the United States by all members of the Chinese Communist Party and their families, a person familiar with the matter said on Thursday, a move that would worsen already tense US-China relations.Senior officials discussing the matter have begun circulating a draft of a possible presidential order, but deliberations are at an early stage and the issue has not yet been brought to President Donald Trump, the source said, speaking on condition of anonymity.The discussions, first reported by the New York Times, center on whether to deny visas to tens of millions of Chinese in what would be one of Washington’s toughest actions yet in a widening feud with Beijing that some have likened to a new Cold War. Relations between the world’s two largest economies have sunk to the lowest point in decades as they clash over China’s handling of the coronavirus outbreak, its tightening grip on Hong Kong, its disputed claims in the South China Sea, trade and accusations of human rights crimes in Xinjiang.US officials across multiple agencies are involved in the process, which includes consideration of whether to block Communist Party members’ children from attending American universities, said the source, who has been briefed on deliberations.The fact that such a sweeping ban is being discussed shows the lengths to which Trump’s aides may be prepared to go as they make the tough-on-China theme a thrust of his campaign for re-election in November.Trump and prospective Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden have competed to outdo each other on which can take the strongest stand against China.Trump’s aides have made the Communist Party a main target for what they call Beijing’s “malign” activities. But Trump has held off on direct criticism of Chinese President Xi Jinping, whom he has praised as a friend.Among the options is to base such a visa moratorium on immigration laws used by the Trump to justify his 2017 travel ban from a group of predominantly Muslim countries, according to the person familiar with the discussions.Trump could also have authority to make exceptions for certain individuals or categories, the source said.One difficulty would be determining which Chinese nationals are party members, since US authorities do not have full lists, the source said. Topics :last_img read more

For a growing family this kitchen had to be both appealing and functional. The separate butlers pantry with plenty of room to cook and create was the perfection solution. Lastly the splashback was the visual anchor providing a splash of colour.”According to HIA, “the judges said this unforgettable element works as a piece of art for the open plan living room”.center_img 2017 HIA Australian Kitchen Design winner – Sublime Architectural Interiors, Queensland.

first_imgThe New York Times readership program has been renewed, giving USC students access to the daily newspaper on campus and online starting next week.Read all about it · The New York Times is now available for students at Tutor Campus Center, the Annenberg School and Leavey Library. – Kevin Fohrer | Daily Trojan“The New York Times readership program was started in the spring semester of 2013,” said Michael Yoshimura, USG’s director of Academic Affairs. “When we looked over the budget for the spring semester, it made sense to continue it.”In order to expand its readership base, The New York Times offers discounts to student organizations at major universities.“[The New York Times education staff] gave us a presentation on their readership program, and it sounded like a great way for students to learn what’s going on outside USC,” Yoshimura said.Physical copies of the daily paper will be placed in special racks near Leavey Library, the Ronald Tutor Campus Center and the Annenberg School each week from Monday to Friday. The directors say this spring’s distribution is an increase from last semester’s.“We’re actually getting more copies now, as well as a new online subscription,” said Logan Burkhead, USG’s assistant director of Academic Affairs.USG has registered for 200 digital licenses per day, which students can obtain by going to nytimes.com/passes  and registering with their USC email address. Students logging in will be given 24-hour access to subscriber content on the website.Yoshimura and Burkhead hope this new feature will increase the subscription’s popularity and result in even more educational opportunities for USC students in months to come.“We want to extend the program in the future,” Burkhead said. “We’re hoping to have an actual New York Times columnist come in by the end of the semester and give a presentation to students.”The directors believe that in comparison to other papers, such as the Los Angeles Times, The New York Times offers the “best package” to college students.“It seems like The New York Times is an elite publication, and it deals on a national scale,” Yoshimura said. “And considering everything else they’re giving us, they really set themselves apart.”last_img read more
