PG to lose billions in revenue in China tariff battle. Chinese Employees are forbidden to eat at McDonald’s or Kentucky Fried Chicken. They are not allowed to purchase P&G [Proctor and Gamble, a U.S. maker of household products], Amway [U.S. maker of health and beauty products], or any other American brands. Employees must not go to the United States as a tourist. ”


The notice said the rules were in effect as of the day of its issuance, and that the company’s trade union would enforce them. Those who violate the notice will be dismissed from the company, without exception.

The notice attracted a lot of attention online.

“Computers should be banned as well, because it is a U.S. invention,” one netizen said ironically.

Chinese state-run media have begun ramping up anti-American propaganda, as the U.S.-China trade dispute recently escalated with tit-for-tat tariff increases. The company’s memo came to light shortly after the hawkish state-run newspaper Global Times in a May 13 editorial called on the Chinese public to “fight a people’s war” with the United States.


In an internal announcement issued May 16 by the Jinggang Motor Vehicle Inspection Station located in Donghai County, Jiangsu Province, the company echoed the propaganda, explaining that China’s developments in military, science, and technology have frightened and worried the United States.

As a result, the United States started the trade war with China. “To help our country win this war, company authorities have decided that all employees must immediately stop purchasing and using American products,” the notice read. The refrain that the United States is impeding China’s rise on the global stage has been repeated in much of Chinese state media lately.
