Washington wants to empower India and other Indo-Pacific allies to replace manufacturing supply chains running through China.

    China is running a massive surveillance network in Africa, reveals a new report published by the Heritage Foundation, a Washington, D.C.-based think tank. The intelligence gathering operation was most likely run through State-owned Chinese companies involved in building critical government infrastructure.

    President Donald Trump told WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus that if the organization does not make necessary changes, especially when it comes to China, he will permanently withdraw funding and "reconsider" America's membership.
