In other news, Iran has issued an arrest warrant for Donald Trump for the assassination of General Qassem Soleimani. And that will never be enforced, of course, but I feel like Trump won't be legally welcome in many countries once he's out of office.

Meanwhile, the United States is not expected to be included in the European Union's coronavirus "safe" list. American travelers won't be welcome because we can't control our outbreak.

Finally, China says they'll impose a visa ban on American officials in response to Trump's visa ban.

China will impose a visa ban on U.S. citizens who interfere with sweeping national security legislation planned for Hong Kong, a move that comes shortly after the Trump administration imposed them on some officials in Beijing.

“As a response to the U.S.’s wrongful decision to impose visa bans on Chinese officials, China decides to impose visa bans on Americans who behave badly in Hong Kong affairs,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian told reporters at a regular briefing in Beijing on Monday, without naming any specific targets.

“Who will be the targets? Relevant people would know clearly themselves,” Zhao added.

The relevant people may include Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

You know, it still feels weird every time I write the words "Secretary of State Mike Pompeo" because he is and always was such an asshole sometimes I can't believe he's our secretary of state. But I guess that applies to Trump as well.

    Iran can have him.

    I’m guessing the MAGA crowd will respond to the EU banning American travel with a rousing chant of “USA! USA! USA!”

    Iran, or anyone else, can have Pompeo too.
