The United States on Monday forced monetary sanctions and a travel ban on 14 Chinese officials over their alleged part in Beijing’s rejection last month of elected opposition legislators in Hong Kong.

The move pushed Asian stock markets lower, targeted the vice-chairpersons of the National People’s Congress Standing Committee (NPCSC), the apex decision-making organisation of the Chinese legislature.

The action was broadly viewed as part of an attempt by outgoing President Donald Trump to connect his tough-on-China legacy and also box president-elect Joe Biden, before he assumes office on Jan. 20, into hardline stances on Beijing at a time of bipartisan anti-China predilection in Congress.
