CHANGSHA, China The United States has ordered China to close its consulate general in Houston "in order to protect American intellectual property and American's private information," State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus said Wednesday.

Beijing vowed to retaliate against the order, calling it "an unprecedented escalation" in a broader conflict between the world's two biggest economies, which now encompasses trade and technology, freedom of the press and religion, and the coronavirus and the race for a vaccine.

The U.S. has far more diplomatic missions and staff working in China. So if the U.S. is bent on going down this wrong path, we will resolutely respond, Wang Wenbin, a Foreign Ministry spokesman, told reporters Wednesday.

The State Department did not elaborate on the alleged violations, but Ortagus suggested that China had violated the Vienna Convention, which says diplomats must "respect the laws and regulations of the receiving State" and "have a duty not to interfere in the internal affairs of that State."

1. trumps attacks on China

Are because they wouldn't allow trump to corrupt and compromise them against Biden. Expect him to escalate this and adding false claims against Biden with China, and he's done this kind of stuff before . If you refuse to be corrupt for him , he tries to hurt you.

2. Well, China, if you really want to retaliate against Donald Trump, then stop doing business

with his campaign and companies. Revoke all the trademark permissions you've granted him and Ivanka.
