US President Donald Trump did not rule out that the US authorities will require China to close some other diplomatic institutions in the US after the Consulate-General in Houston.
Earlier, US State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus said that Washington ordered the closure of the Chinese Consulate General in Houston to ensure the protection of intellectual property and personal information of Americans.
“As for closing additional missions, it is always possible,” Trump said at a press conference.
“You can see what’s happening. We believe that there was a fire in the (Consulate-General) that we closed. Everyone said that. I think they burned documents, papers. I wonder what that would mean,” the President added.
