— July 21, 2020
Excerpt from The Philadelphia Inquirer -- "That is the most appalling part of the report,' notes Michael Posner, the former assistant secretary of state for democracy, human rights, and labor under President Barack Obama. 'Look at Xinjiang, Hong Kong, Hungary, the Philippines, and Saudi Arabia,' Posner told me. Indeed, the list goes on and on of places where Trump has failed to raise human rights issues with autocratic leaders he favors, even as he critiques such violations in countries he dislikes, such as Venezuela, Iran, and Cuba."
