U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, issued the following statement after the New York Stock Exchange announced it will delist three Chinese telecommunication giants.

"This is the right call. Americans shouldn’t bankroll firms that are in bed with the Chinese Communist Party. Chinese firms that reject fundamental transparency requirements and have ties to the Chinese military shouldn’t benefit from American investment. Our freedom loving allies should take note and review their own financial ties to the CCP."
