The US has ordered the Chinese consulate in Houston to shut down due to espionage activities. No doubt there is plenty of evidence of that. My question is, do the Chinese not own document destruction devices? Fire is so Cold War.

What a joke.

Quote
The U.S. "will not tolerate the PRCís violations of our sovereignty and intimidation of our people, just as we have not tolerated the PRCís unfair trade practices, theft of American jobs, and other egregious behavior," she added. "President Trump insists on fairness and reciprocity in U.S.-China relations."

The United States hasn't done diddly squat in response to years -- if not decades -- of China stealing American technology and flooding our markets with cheap knock-offs made by slave labor.

I would like to know what the "intimidation of our people" refers to.
