Um, good? China deserves to be more than embarrassed over this:
Trump administration has determined #China committed “genocide and crimes against humanity” in its repression of Uighur Muslims in Xinjiang, @SecPompeo said, delivering an embarrassing blow to Beijing a day before @JoeBiden takes office.
