Chinese carriers have also had flights affected by the rules.The U.S. government has repeatedly raised objections over China’s so-called circuit-breaker measure and believes it is inconsistent with an agreement that governs air travel between the two countries, the DOT wrote in its order.

China’s rules can penalize airlines if their passengers test positive for Covid-19 up to seven days after arrival, something the DOT said is “wholly outside of the carriers’ control.”“We find that CAAC’s recent actions impairing the operations of Delta, American, and United as described above are adverse to the public interest and warrant proportionate remedial action by the Department,” the DOT wrote.

Good yep, that's the right direction toward a dictatorship. It's not similar. US carriers do not conduct strict pre-flight nucleic acid testing, which brings huge virus import risks and epidemic prevention pressure to China. China is not targeting anyone, just implementing strict epidemic prevention policies.

According to Democrats, that's racist. Did he do that!!

Ukrainian President pushes back on Biden: 'There are no minor incursions'Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky publicly pushed back Thursday on US President Joe Biden's comments that a 'minor incursion' by Russia into Ukraine would prompt a lesser response than a full-scale invasion, in an implicit rebuke of Biden's comments. Zelenskyy is right. That was a mistake. Would POTUS say the same thing if the Russians would initiate a 'minor incursion' in Alaska? There is no such thing as a 'minor' incursion in a sovereign country. They are all major. Please type 'total number of stars in universe' in GOOGLE......an average of 100 billion stars per galaxy ?

Inc. Chinese carriers have also had flights affected by the rules. The U.S. government has repeatedly raised objections over China’s so-called circuit-breaker measure and believes it is inconsistent with an agreement that governs air travel between the two countries, the DOT wrote in its order. China’s rules can penalize airlines if their passengers test positive for Covid-19 up to seven days after arrival, something the DOT said is “wholly outside of the carriers’ control.” “We find that CAAC’s recent actions impairing the operations of Delta, American, and United as described above are adverse to the public interest and warrant proportionate remedial action by the Department,” the DOT wrote. The department said it would revisit its action if China’s authorities adjusted their policy, but would take additional action if the situation worsens. Liu Pengyu, a representative for the Chinese Embassy in Washington, said China’s policy has helped effectively block the spread of virus across borders. “The policy has been applied equally to Chinese and foreign airlines in a fair, open, and transparent way,” he said. “It is very unreasonable for the U.S. to suspend Chinese airlines’ flights on this ground. We urge the U.S. side to stop disrupting and restricting the normal passenger flights operated by Chinese airlines.” The suspensions, just weeks before the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, deepen China’s isolation from the rest of the world and
