China sanctions are 'symbolic, ineffectual' - McEnany

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany dismissed on Monday the newly-announced Chinese sanctions on US senators Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz as "symbolic" and "ineffectual."

Asked about possible new sanctions against Beijing, McEnany told reporters at her briefing that she "won't get ahead" of President Donald Trump, but underlined an increasing number of countries across the globe have been demanding "real" action from China regarding its alleged human rights abuses in Xinjiang.

Regarding Trump's executive orders on stimulating the economy, McEnany asserted the move was "entirely within the executive capacity of the president."
