China to sanction US officials who visit Taiwan - report

China is planning to sanction every senior official from the United States who makes a visit to Taiwan, as well as American companies linked to these individuals, the Global Times reported on Tuesday.

"Based on what I know, China will sanction senior US officials who visit Taiwan, and American companies which they have ties with. They will never be allowed to enter the Chinese mainland and US companies they have ties with will also lose the Chinese mainland market," GT's Editor-In-Chief Hu Xijin revealed on Twitter.

As the bilateral dispute continues, President Donald Trump previously suggested China could face "massive tariffs" due to economically "taking advantage" of the US.
