American flag lowered at US consulate in Chengdu: Reports

China had on Friday ordered the United States to close its consulate in Chengdu, southwestern Chinese province. The move was a response to the Donald Trump administration’s order this week for Beijing to close its consulate in Houston.
The deadline for the Americans to exit Chengdu has been unclear, but the Chinese consulate in Houston was given 72 hours to close after the original order was made.
The American flag was lowered at the United States consulate in Chengdu on Monday, days after Beijing ordered it to close in retaliation for the shuttering of the Chinese consulate in Houston.
