In more news on China, the acting U.S. ambassador to China has resigned in protest of President Trump’s decision to pull out of the landmark 2015 Paris climate change agreement. David Rank had served 27 years in the State Department before resigning Monday. His resignation is the latest in a series of protests against Trump by top diplomats at the State Department. Last month, the U.S. ambassador to Qatar tweeted, “Increasingly difficult to wake up overseas to news from home, knowing I will spend today explaining our democracy and institutions.”
