Even Secretary of State Mike Pompeo seems to support programs like the Fulbright when he clarified that  “[t]he United States welcomes the reciprocal and fair exchange of cultural programs with PRC officials and the Chinese people” after canceling various one-way programs with China. The Fulbright program is reciprocal, sending people in both directions – Americans to China and Chinese to America. It is also a program that is supported by both the U.S. and Chinese governments, with the Chinese government giving $1.3 million to the program in 2016 and the U.S. giving $5.5 million. (2016 is the last Fulbright year that the current Fulbright Board published an annual report even though required to by Congress).
