If China is putting sanctions on you it must mean you stood up against their Communistic bullying tactics.
China has announced that they have sanctioned 28 Trump administration officials for being “anti-China” politicians.
The sanctions included Mike Pompeo, Steve Bannon, John Bolton, Peter Navarro, and several others.
Maybe the U.S. should put sanctions on CCP officials who harvest organs but we all know China Mitch and others in Congress wouldn’t let that fly.

NPR covered the actions by China:
China imposed sanctions Wednesday on 28 former Trump administration officials, including outgoing Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
In a statement released just minutes after President Biden took office, China’s foreign ministry said it had decided to sanction those “who have seriously violated China’s sovereignty and who have been mainly responsible for such U.S. moves on China-related issues.”
The list of names features former Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar; former White House trade adviser Peter Navarro; former national security adviser Robert O’Brien; Kelly Craft, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations; and Matthew Pottinger, who recently resigned as deputy national security adviser. Former national security adviser John Bolton and former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon were also included.
If you support Taiwan or Hong Kong’s freedom it looks like the CCP doesn’t want anything to do with you.
Here’s the official statement by China:
Over the past few years, some anti-China politicians in the United States, out of their selfish political interests and prejudice and hatred against China and showing no regard for the interests of the Chinese and American people, have planned, promoted and executed a series of crazy moves which have gravely interfered in China’s internal affairs, undermined China’s interests, offended the Chinese people, and seriously disrupted China-U.S. relations. The Chinese government is firmly resolved to defend China’s national sovereignty, security and development interests. China has decided to sanction 28 persons who have seriously violated China’s sovereignty and who have been mainly responsible for such U.S. moves on China-related issues.
They include Michael R. Pompeo, Peter K. Navarro, Robert C. O’Brien, David R. Stilwell, Matthew Pottinger, Alex M. Azar II, Keith J. Krach, and Kelly D. K. Craft of the Trump administration as well as John R. Bolton and Stephen K. Bannon. These individuals and their immediate family members are prohibited from entering the mainland, Hong Kong and Macao of China. They and companies and institutions associated with them are also restricted from doing business with China.
China did not wait long. Minutes after Biden becomes President, China’s foreign affairs ministry announces sanctions on 28 Trump officials, including Pompeo, Pottinger, Bolton, and those who visited Taiwan on official delegations https://t.co/REfWT2ZUug
