President Trump reportedly has under consideration deploying a powerful new weapon against Communist Chinese aggression that is now becoming evident in virtually every conceivable domain.

As a result, U.S. investors would no longer enable, for example, Chinese corporations that are building Beijing’s police state apparatus, its man-made and fortified South China Sea islands and its next generation of naval combatants.
