China in Focus (July 22): Houston Chinese Consulate Ordered to Close

Massive flooding in China is raising concerns that the Three Gorges Dam could collapse. But one Chinese expert refuted the claims, saying the dam is sound enough to withstand an atomic bomb.

The United States ordered the Chinese consulate to close in Houston, Texas, giving Chinese consulate staff 72 hours to get out of the country. The staff were seen burning documents in the yard at the back of the building.

Mike Pompeo said President Donald Trump has said “enough” over China’s intellectual property theft. The Secretary of State will give a China policy speech tomorrow, which he says will make sure Americans fully understand the threats of the CCP and explain the new policies.

Capital outflows in China reached a 4-year high. Nearly $140 billion U.S. dollars in indirect investment funds flowed out of China in the second quarter.

And at 3 p.m., a powerful storm quickly turned day into night. That’s as unusual weather seems to be plaguing China.
