The 5,593-page government funding bill that includes the COVID-19 stimulus legislation also includes a section outlining the reincarnation and succession of the Dalai Lama.
The legislation includes some notable sections that are not directly related to government funding or the pandemic.
Section 342 of the bill outlines a "statement of policy regarding the succession or reincarnation of the Dalai Lama."

I have heard that China made it illegal for the Dalai Lama to reincarnate, so if there is another one after this one he could be arrested.
This Bill is 99% non-coronavirus -related.

That's news? China interfered with the independence of Tibet in 1950. Seventy years ago. Meaningful Tibetan autonomy ended in 1959.
It’s also very frustrating.
How is Newsweek publishing false stories like that?
These fake articles are camouflaging the legitimate issues.
According to the text I just received from the Trump campaign...he just vetoed the Covid bill.
