In a memo issued Friday, the department said it would require all of its personnel, contracted scientists and future grant recipients to declare any connections to programs from countries it determines as “sensitive.” Employees with the links will be asked to either sever those ties or resign,...[paywall]

This shouldn't surprise you. After all, this is right in line with everything Trump has been doing in respect to China.

If this is a Trump move I'll still applaud it.
