Tensions between the US and China continue to escalate as China imposed sanctions on 11 U.S. citizens including legislators in response to the U.S. imposition of sanctions on 11 Hong Kong and Chinese officials accused of curtailing political freedoms. Monday’s actions follow the Trump administration’s recent order for the closure of the Chinese Consulate in Houston and China’s retaliatory closure of the US Consulate in Chengdu. Some analysts say the damage may be irreparable, for the short term and potentially much longer. Also, Global coronavirus cases reach 20 million with 5 million in the United States. Plus, as President Trump took to the podium for his daily White House coronavirus update, he was quickly whisked away by a secret service officer due to a security threat.
