Trump Administration Restricts Chinese Students

On December 2, 2018 Voice Of America (VOA) published a news report, US Considers New Restrictions on Chinese Students.
This is certainly welcome news. The actions of the Trump administration to restrict Chinese students studying in the United States has been long overdue given the outrageous conduct of the Chinese government in its massive spying program against the United States; which has been so pervasive that it has come to be sarcastically referred to by the American intelligence community as “Chinese Take-Out!”
Here is how the VOA article began:
The administration of American President Donald Trump is considering new restrictions on Chinese students entering the U.S.
U.S. officials say increased concerns over spying and the loss of new technologies are among the reasons.
In June, the U.S. State Department shortened the length of stay for visas given to Chinese graduate students studying in several fields. The fields include flight, robotics and some kinds of manufacturing. Visas were shortened from five years to one.
At the time, the officials said the goal was to limit the risk of spying and of the loss of intellectual property that is important to national security.
Now, the Trump administration is considering whether to carry out additional investigations of Chinese students attending U.S. schools.
Reuters news agency reported that officials want to examine student phone calls. They also are considering looking at students’ personal accounts on Chinese and U.S. social media sites.
Since taking office, President Trump has refused to follow the well-worn path of previous presidents who failed to put the interests of America and Americans first. This includes how the U.S. deals with China.
