According to John Bolton, Donald Trump backed China's large-scale support for Uighur Muslims



The forthcoming memo of the former National Security Adviser said that Trump had told Xi Jinping to "go ahead with building the camps" and that it was "absolutely the right thing to do."


Donald Trump has verbally endorsed China's Uyghur re-education camp - where he recently held 1 million members of the country's Muslim minority - in a recent meeting with Xi Jinping, former national security adviser John Bolton.

In the leaked excerpt of his upcoming memoir The Room Where It Happened, Bolton recalled a meeting between Trump and Xi at the 20th summit in Japan in 2019, in which China defended its construction of a "vocational education and training center": a series of detention camps in northwest China's Xinjiang Done, local authorities have been ignoring the Uyghurs since at least 2017.

According to our interpreter, Bolton writes about the meeting, "Trump said that Ji should go ahead with building the camp, which Trump thought was the right thing to do." "

The revelation comes amid allegations against Trump in Bolton's upcoming memoir, to be released next week. Among them: Trump pleaded with China to buy American agricultural products to benefit politically; Gini requested that he win the 2020 US presidential election, And he suggested that "a two-day constitutional restriction on presidents should be abolished for them."

In light of recent events, claims about Trump's alleged endorsement of the Uyghur camps are particularly noteworthy. Within hours of Bolton's appearance on the pages of The New York Times, The Washington Post, and The Wall Street Journal on Wednesday, Trump signed a bill calling for sanctions against China's treatment of Uighurs.

In a statement released Wednesday afternoon, the Uyghur Human Rights Policy Act of 2020 - which criminalizes the "systematic use of human rights violations and abuse camps - prevents forced labor and intrusive surveillance.". Ethnic identity and religious beliefs of Uyghur and other minorities in China. "

Trump's bill on the Al Jazeera report was not organized. And Senior Lecturer of Modern Chinese History at the University of Sydney and expert from Xinjiang, According to David Brophy, he was not much interested in implementing it.

"From Bolton's account, Trump has little enthusiasm for using the provisions of the bill to put pressure on China on the Uyghur issue. If he does not enforce the sanctions, it is not due to any commitment to human rights," Vice told Vice by Email. "Trump has not really taken a public stand on the camps. People like Vice President Pence and Foreign Minister Pompeo routinely denounce China's dealings with the Uyghurs, while Trump has [historically] avoided mentioning China in his rhetoric."

Dr. Brophy cannot speculate that the timing of Trump's signing of sanctions is tied to the accounts of the Bolton leak, or is it just a coincidence. However, he believes that Trump's support for the Uyghur camps "should not come as a surprise to us."

"Trump has no desire to treat the entire Muslim population as potential Muslims," ​​he said. "This Bolton report] tells us that his political instincts are close to Zi when it comes to the performance and oppression of the Muslim population."

During his presidency, Trump expressed his feelings for Muslims on more than one occasion - through his policies on the Muslim travel ban or the history of tweeting Islamophobic messages on social media. His support for the Xinjiang camps, if true, would be another devastating indictment of the views of the US president and the way the Muslim population has behaved around the world.

"Trump supports the policy of mass terrorism and re-education against terrorism [in supporting the camps], making it a full-scale attack on Uyghur's religious and cultural life," said Dr. Brophy. "The US-led war on terrorism has unfortunately provided an excuse for such policies for repressive regimes around the world. Sometimes the US attacks them, sometimes they criticize them."
