Trump Admin Declares Chinese Media Outlets ‘Foreign Missions’, Propagandists Could Have to Leave U.S.


The Trump administration has designated four additional Chinese Communist Party-run media outlets as “foreign missions.”

The U.S. operations of China Central Television, China News Service, the People’s Daily and the Global Times join the five other Chinese state media operation labeled as such earlier this year.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced on Twitter:

“The decision to designate these entities is not based on any content produced by these entities, nor does it place any restrictions on what the designated entities may publish in the United States. It simply recognizes them for what they are,” State spokesperson Morgan Ortagus said in a statement.

Politico reports:

The designation will require the outlets to send the State Department a full list of employees in the U.S. and their real estate holdings, similar to the rules for embassies and consulates. It could force some of the groups’ journalists to leave the United States.
