Reagan Library Sanctioned By Chinese Communist Party Over Tsai Trip

Chinese Communist Party claims Taiwan is destined to reunite with China, by force if necessary

  • In retaliation for House Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s meeting with Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen, China sanctioned the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California, where the talks were held.
  • McCarthy, along with other foreign legislators, have been meeting with Tsai in a show of support for Taiwan in the face of communist Chinese intimidation.
  • The Washington D.C. think tank, the Hudson Institute, was sanctioned alongside the Reagan library.
  • China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said the organizations were sanctioned for “providing a platform and convenience to Taiwan separatist activities.”
