The Trump administration has actively opposed the many human right abuses in China. The president is taking steps to combat the imprisonment of Uyghur Muslims, and the rampant oppression of the Chinese people.
Since 2017, the Trump administration has made policies to hold the Chinese government accountable for their treatment of Uyghurs- an ethnic minority group in China. The Uyghurs have a long history of discord with the communist Chinese government. It is estimated that millions of Uyghur citizens from the Xinjiang province have been detained in re-education camps.
In the camps, Uyghur women are forced into sterilization and abortions. Rape and violence are common occurrences. There are also forced marriages, labor, and coercive birth control methods. The communist Chinese government has little regard for human life, and no care for its dignity. Scholar Nicholas Eberstadt of the American Enterprise Institute calls China an “almost perfect embodiment” of a “culture of death”.
National Security Council spokesman, John Ullyot states, “Where the previous Administration and many other world leaders delivered speeches and empty rhetoric, President Trump has taken bold action…President Trump’s policies have demonstrated that every person—the born and unborn, the poor, the downcast, the disabled, the infirm, and the elderly—has inherent value.” One important policy passed was the Uyghur Human Rights Policy Act. The Act identifies the abuses of the Chinese government and will cut UN program funding that supports them.
The Chinese government denies its citizens basic rights to religion and life. Ruthlessly totalitarian, they are no trusty friend to the US as Joe Biden proclaims. As bleak as the Uyghur crisis in China is, the Trump administration brings hope by demanding justice.
