Statement From National Security Advisor Robert C. O’Brien

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Statement from National Security Advisor Robert C. O’Brien

In May 2020, the Trump Administration foresaw and declared the death of Hong Kong’s free and open society at the hands of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Last week’s politicized arrests of more than 50 people, former elected officials among them, for exercising their political rights guaranteed under the Basic Law, is the latest of many successive nails that Beijing has driven into the coffin of Hong Kong democracy.

In May, the Administration demanded answers from Beijing about the origins of the virus and accused the World Health Organization of enabling a cover up by deferring to the CCP.

Just as China ignored its international obligations under the Sino-British Joint Declaration, it continues to do so with the International Health Regulations.

The United States was the first major country with the courage and conviction to candidly acknowledge the true nature of the CCP regime. It is critical that nations around the world demand accountability from Beijing. The world cannot continue to pay heavy prices for its naivet

and complicity in Beijing’s irresponsible and harmful practices whether it is ending the rule of law in Hong Kong or not cooperating with health officials on the pandemic. The United States is examining further options to respond.

Statement from the Press Secretary

Antifa activists have brutally attacked our law-abiding friends, neighbors, and business owners, and destroyed historic landmarks that our communities have cherished for decades. This violence and lawlessness has no place in the United States and will be called out for the domestic terrorism that it is. Today, President Donald J. Trump signed a memorandum to ensure that Federal officials assess actions of Antifa activists in light of Federal laws that restrict the entry of aliens associated with terrorist organizations and aliens intent on criminal activity. President Trump will not allow Antifa, or any terrorist organization, to destroy our great country.

Statement From National Security Advisor Robert C. O’Brien on the Executive Order Addressing Chinese Software Applications

Statement from National Security Advisor Robert C. O’Brien on the Executive Order Addressing Chinese Software Applications

Today, President Donald J. Trump signed an executive order addressing the continuing threat posed by Chinese software applications. The Chinese government requires that all commercial companies, big and small, support the Chinese Communist Party’s political objectives as Chinese regulators have recently demonstrated.

China’s Military-Civil Fusion strategy explicitly aims to co-opt or coerce civilian enterprises into assisting the People’s Liberation Army. This executive order tasks the Secretary of Commerce to identify prohibited transactions involving eight Chinese software applications, including payment services; directs the Secretary of Commerce to identify and take appropriate action against other software applications; and develops a program to control the export of exploitable United States user data to foreign adversaries.

President Trump continues to prioritize the safety and security of the United States homeland and the American people.

STATEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT

Today, I have signed into law’S. 3989, the “United States Semiquincentennial Commission Amendments Act of 2020” (the “Act”), which would amend the powers of the United States Semiquincentennial Commission, a commission with the responsibility to provide for the observance and commemoration, in 2026, of the 250 th anniversary of the founding of the United States. This moment will mark a historic achievement for our country and deserves commemoration. The Act provides that the Commission will include officials who are members of the House and Senate appointed by congressional leaders, private citizens appointed by congressional leaders, and nonvoting ex officio members from the executive branch. I wholeheartedly welcome the participation of Members of Congress and private citizens in the activities of the Commission. In accord with President Reagan’s signing statement in 1983 and President Obama’s signing statement in 2016 for similar commemorative legislation, I understand, and my Administration has so advised the Congress, that because the Commission includes Members of Congress and congressional appointees, the Commission may provide advice and recommendations, and may participate in ceremonial activities, but may not participate in matters involving the execution of the laws, in light of the separation of powers and the Appointments and Ineligibility Clauses of the Constitution.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

STATEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT

Today, I have signed into law’S. 914, the “Coordinated Ocean Observations and Research Act of 2020” (the “Act”). Section 103(b) of the Act amends section 12304(c) of the Integrated Coastal and Ocean Observation System Act of 2009 to provide that the Interagency Ocean Observation Committee shall develop and transmit to the Congress along with the President’s annual budget a “coordinated, comprehensive budget” addressing certain elements of the system provided for by that earlier statute. This requirement to recommend legislative measures contravenes the Recommendations Clause, United States Constitution Article II, Section 3, which gives the President the constitutional prerogative to recommend to the Congress only such measures as the President shall judge necessary and expedient. My Administration will implement this provision in a manner consistent with the Recommendations Clause. —

DONALD J. TRUMP
