The honorable Chinese government is pissed off about legislation designed to stop the trading of products created by slave labor.

China imposes sanctions on Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio as diplomatic spat escalates | The Independent

China’s foreign ministry said it would impose retaliatory sanctions against 11 American politicians and civil society leaders, including US senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, starting on Monday.

It follows the Trump administration’s move on Friday to impose sanctions on 11 top Hong Kong and Chinese officials whom it accused of curtailing political freedoms in the city.

Mr Cruz and Mr Rubio spearheaded recent legislation designed to prevent goods produced by forced labour being imported by US companies, and mandating that the US government sanctions anyone who “knowingly engages” in forced labour in Xinjiang.

For opposing the U.S supporting business that utilizes slave labor? What's your position on this?
