  1. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.scmp.com/news/china/article/3030739/donald-trumps-administration-weighing-limits-us-portfolio-flows-china) reduced by 91%. (I’m a bot)

    > The push to limit Chinese access to American capital is said to have been spearheaded by White House trade adviser Peter Navarro, one of the biggest China hawks among aides to US President Donald Trump, and officials at the National Security Council.

    > Hundreds of Chinese businesses have been added into the MSCI indices since last year; Bloomberg Barclays began adding Chinese bonds to its flagship Global Aggregate Bond Index in April.

    > One of the most extreme arguments for cutting China off from American capital – advanced by Navarro and outside advisers like Steve Bannon – is that US investments in Chinese companies or on China's exchanges mean that Americans are unwittingly giving financial support to the Chinese Communist Party and a rising strategic and economic rival.

  2. But doesn’t Trump want the CCP to give American companies greater access to Chinese market?

    Why are you making blocking this access yourself?

  3. How absurd when you consider that China is one of the largest holders of US debt… There’s capital flowing in regardless

  4. That could be an effective strategy than Tariffs. Of course Trump probably doesn’t understnd either one. Someone was able to finally get through to him by may be saying “your great bestest strategy of tariffs is working so well and now we can do more”

  5. You could just let people sunk their money into that high risk venture. I wouldn’t touch a stock that is based in china.
