Thread: #Trump Meets With Falun Gong Practitioner, Other Survivors of Religious Persecution theepochtimes.com/trump-meets-wi…
A practitioner of the spiritual discipline Falun Gong who was persecuted in China for her faith was among 27 survivors of religious persecution who met with President Donald Trump at the White House on July 17.
Falun Gong, a traditional Chinese meditation practice, has been brutally persecuted by the Chinese communist regime for 20 years. At any given time, hundreds of thousands of adherents are held in prisons, labor camps, and brainwashing centers, where many have been tortured.
Trump met with Zhang, as well as other survivors from 17 countries, including China, North Korea, Iran, Pakistan, and Burma, to reaffirm his administration’s commitment to religious freedom, the White House said.
While gathered around Trump’s desk in the Oval Office, Zhang told Trump that her husband, also a Falun Gong practitioner, is imprisoned in Suzhou Prison in Jiangsu Province, China. “Forced organ harvesting still exists, so we should take action,” Zhang said. “Words don’t work.”
Zhang was referring to longstanding allegations, based on evidence from a variety of sources, that the Chinese regime has been killing imprisoned Falun Gong practitioners to use their organs for transplant.
“Each of you has suffered tremendously for your faith,” Trump said during the meeting. “Each of you has now become a witness to the importance of advancing religious liberty all around the world.”
