U.S. Chamber of Commerce Attends Lavish Dinner with Chinese President Xi Jinping in San Francisco

In an exclusive revelation by the Daily Caller, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce was identified as a participant in an extravagant dinner held in San Francisco on Wednesday, featuring the presence of Chinese President Xi Jinping. The event, which included CEOs from major U.S. companies, California Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom, and other Chinese officials, aimed to foster diplomatic and business ties.

While many attendees were previously known, the Daily Caller uncovered that Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi was also present, seated alongside prominent figures. Wang, a vocal critic of accusations regarding the treatment of Uighur Muslims, denounced such claims as “ridiculously absurd” and “a complete lie.” Hosted by the U.S.-China Business Council and the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations, the gathering shed light on the ongoing efforts by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to influence religious practices through the “Sinicization of Religion.”

According to the Department of Labor, the Chinese government has reportedly detained over a million Uyghurs since 2017. Notably, the dinner brought together CEOs from renowned companies like Apple, Blackstone, BlackRock, Honeywell, FedEx, Boeing, Pfizer, Visa, NIKE, and Mastercard. The House Select Committee on Strategic Competition between the United States and the Chinese Communist Party revealed that tickets for the event were priced at $40,000.

The seating chart, obtained by the Daily Caller, revealed a notable list of attendees, raising concerns about the intersection of business interests and political influence. Critics, including Jon Schweppe, Policy Director for the American Principles Project, questioned the nature of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s involvement, stating, “This doesn’t look like competition — this looks like Chairman Xi is making an acquisition.” Schweppe further suggested a possible name change for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, emphasizing the need for scrutiny in light of the organization’s engagement with China.
