National Emergency Against Serious Human Rights Violations and Corruption Extended for One Year by President Trump
President Trump issued an executive order declaring a state of emergency on December 20, 2017, effective for one year and renewed annually. Extensions were made in 2018 and 2019, respectively, but no action was taken against the CCP at that time. On Dec. 16, 2020, President Trump again declared a one-year extension in response to extraordinary threats to U.S. national security, foreign policy, and economy that originated in whole or part from abroad. This year’s extension will be different from previous.
What a State of Emergency Means
It means: first, the executive branches of the government can bypass Congress to do something; second, there are special funds and personnel to implement the relevant actions. Trump issued at that time the executive order pointing to a national emergency as an advance to deal with the current situation, LuDe analyzed. According to the Act, the assets of foreign organizations and individuals who pose a threat to the United States (CCP kleptocrats), or those who assist in posing a threat (Hunter Biden), can be seized at any time, without a court decision. The basis for the enactment of this state of emergency came from the International Emergency Economic Powers Act of 1977, signed and issued by President Carter.

He said, the U.S. intelligence director had claimed not long ago that China was the No.1 national security threat to the United States, but some U.S. media pointed out that such a judgment lacked data and facts to support it. He said the lack of data to support the ranking of the CCP as the No.1 threat implied that at the raw intelligence level, there was relatively fewer times interference in the U.S. election from the CCP compared to Iran and Russia. This echoed yesterday’s revelation by a senior U.S. intelligence official that “many of the people who have been saying that Russia interfered in the election are trying to downplay the threat of the Chinese Communist Party”.
