Re: More inconsistant behavior by the Government.
I see this effort as coming from right-wing Christians in the US. China is a favorite bogey because of its suppression of Christianity in various forms. It's not about human rights in general but freedom of religion in this specific context.
As we know, consistency in foreign policy is not a hallmark of this administration. It's a moment-to-moment thing, depending on which side of the bed 45 got out of this morning, and how "nice" foreign autocrats are to him, and how much money they will pump into his US and international businesses.
