Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has warned that China may be a growing threat to democracy. In an interview Sunday, he said recent actions from the Chinese Communist Party has led him to believe its officials are “actively seeking U.S. harm.”
“The United States wants an open and constructive relationship with China, but achieving that relationship requires us to vigorously defend our national interests,” stated the president. “The Chinese government has continually violated its promises to us and so many other nations; these plain facts cannot be overlooked or swept aside…the world is now suffering as a result of the malfeasance of the Chinese government.”
This is a Chinese Communist Party that has come to view itself as intent upon the destruction of Western ideas, Western democracies, and Western values. It puts Americans at risk, whether it’s stealing American intellectual property or destroying jobs here in the U.S. pic.twitter.com/89JlUuARro— Secretary Pompeo (@SecPompeo) May 31, 2020
The Chinese Communist Party is crushing what made Hong Kong different from the rest of China. As a result, the President no longer believes it’s justified to treat Hong Kong the same as before. The U.S. will defend itself from the tyranny of the CCP. pic.twitter.com/OJNoDoPvRJ— Secretary Pompeo (@SecPompeo) May 30, 2020
The Chinese Communist Party’s military advances are real. Our @DeptofDefense is doing everything it can to make sure it understands this threat. President @realDonaldTrump will always keep us in a position where we can protect the American people. pic.twitter.com/NPnLWAwm2b— Secretary Pompeo (@SecPompeo) May 31, 2020
