Trump administration weighs U.S. travel ban on Chinese Communist Party members-source

WASHINGTON, July 16 (Reuters) - The Trump administration is considering banning travel to the United States by all members of the Chinese Communist Party and their families, a person familiar with the matter said on Thursday, a move that could worsen already-tense relations between Beijing and Washington.

Senior officials discussing the matter have begun circulating a draft of a possible presidential order, but deliberations are at an early stage and the issue has not yet been brought to President Donald Trump, the source said, speaking on condition of anonymity. The discussions were first reported by the New York Times. (Reporting By Matt Spetalnick Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
