tl;dr Trump is Making America Great Again by putting pressure on the Chinese for their ethnic cleansing of the Uighurs. Agree or disagree? This is an issue that I think Trump deserves a lot of praise. Of course its easy to see that there is likely an ulterior motive behind his confrontational stance on the issue of the Uighurs in Xinjiang province. However to me that doesn't matter as long as pressure is being put on China for its atrocities. If this issue ends up merely being a chip in the trade war I would be bigly disappointed but for now I like what I see. In fact I attended a lecture on the Uighur crisis by a Uighur professor who escaped China and whose family was devastated by ethnic cleansing and he said the one country that has confronted China the most on this issue is the US. He said Turkey is a somewhat distant second while many Muslim countries give zero fucks. For instance earlier this month US and German diplomats brought the issue up at a UN Security Council meeting about Central Asia in what was described as a heated exchange. And at the UN Human Rights Council 22 countries, many of whom are allies with the US such as Germany, Japan, Canada, and Britain, signed a letter condemning China for its detention centers which is the first such action in the UN Human Rights Council on the matter. The US did not because it withdrew from the Human Rights Council but I doubt there was no US influence behind the letter, otherwise countries like Japan and Australia wouldn't be so bold in standing up to China. Of course there was a counter letter in support of China signed by such free and just countries as Russia, North Korea, Cuba, Myanmar and Venezuela. It even includes Muslim countries like Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, and the other GCC states. There was also the conference on religious persecution in which Pompeo not only called out China but also called out the countries that did not attend the conference, some of whom were thought to have been pressured by China not to. And of course Trump met with various victims of religious persecution around the world, including a Uighur. Unfortunately the narrative from that meeting that materialized on this forum was concerning his gaffe about not knowing where Myanmar is. Which okay its another funny Trumpism and its fine to get a giggle out of it but we should step back and see that he's trying to send a message to countries like China and Myanmar. What say you? Do you agree with Trumps stance on this issue? Or do you side with the Chinese who insist its an "internal" matter and should be ignored by the world?
