CHINA/MIKE POMPEO/TRUMP ADMIN: “The Trump administration has determined that China has committed ‘genocide and crimes against humanity’ in its repression of Uighur Muslims in its Xinjiang region, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Tuesday, delivering an embarrassing blow to Beijing a day before U.S. President-elect Joe Biden is to take office…

The move is certain to strain further already frayed ties between the world’s top two economies, which have plummeted to their lowest level in decades in the last year of President Donald Trump’s administration.”
