5:02 pm
it with you. china's measure is a legitimate necessary response to unjust acts of the us it conforms with international law basic norms and international relations and customary diplomatic practices the current situation and by less room relations is not what china wants to see and the us is responsible for all of this has bring in our white house correspondent kimberly how cats live in washington kimberly this is quite a significant u.s. consulate that beijing decided to close what's the response from the white house. have we gotten it in about the last minute or so from the national security council it says that it is calling on the. chinese come in communist party or c.c.p. to cease its malign actions rather than engage in tit for tat retaliations so that is the latest coming from the white house national security council now when it comes for to tit for tat actions while the latest has been these closures

of the chinese consulate in houston where we understand they are now we are getting reports that there are moving vans there that they are sending packed boxes out something that is consistent with the requirement of the united states to shut that down we've of course also have the so-called tit for tat of the closure of the u.s. consulate in chengdu now in the midst of all this you have to as tensions are spiral spiraling say when did these tit for tat start because you have to remember that china is alleging that it was donald trump that started all of this when he became president said he wanted to have a resetting our relations with the trade relationship and we saw that escalating trade war the tariffs being lobbed 1st by the united states responded to by china but then things really seemed to have a resolution there and then cope with 19 hit and of course that obliterated the world's largest economy the united states the u.s. president looking for someone to blame accusing china of not being transparent and
5:04 pm
allowing this to come instead of containing it at the source so the bottom line is in all of this you know both sides now accusing the other of tit for tat but where that starting point is really depends on which side you're on in this increasingly tense relationship yeah and we've seen as you said the chinese leaving the consummate in houston you know what ultimately is the trumpet ministration trying to achieve with this china policy on you know the pressure on china what is it trying to achieve ultimately. well ultimately this is a bipartisan issue i mean there has been a. agreement in the united states for a very long time that china has not been autistic completely transparent about the relationship there have been accusations from the house speaker nancy pelosi 2 top republicans on capitol hill that china has been conducting backdoor espionage
5:05 pm
through technology intellectual property theft and really taking advantage of the trade relationship with china so this is sort of a question of when to pull the trigger if you will on countering these actions this president campaigned that he was going to be the one to do it and he's followed through on that but again it does have broad implications because there is a very large investment in the trade relationship the business relationship in fact that's where this how this consulate in china that is being closed you know the united states has been asked to have that close the united states has to close that cazalet. you know that was a big major how a commercial sector for the united states so you know where this is had it is still unclear but there's no question it's going to have brought impacts on both sides thank you very much for kimberly how good life or is the white house. the consummate closures are the latest as we said in a series of disputes saying to donald trump blaming china for the worldwide

5:07 pm
department of justice has indicted 2 chinese hackers accused of using cyberspace to seal technology there's other stories of researchers in the united states being ejected and being arrested for misrepresenting themselves when in fact they work for government or military bodies so the government and the united states is really standing up to china and that's forcing china to respond but they are doing it reciprocally and proportionally which means the option is on the table eventually to start walking these actions back but it's really you have to recognize that we're also only 4 months away from the election so china doesn't want to do anything that they can't undo in the next administration if that administration changes and we have a much more conciliatory administration in place. the u.s. investment bank goldman sachs has agreed to pay malaysia $3900000000.00 over its
