(RightWing.org) – Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned Sunday that the Chinese Communist Party is deliberately trying to harm the US and other western nations. Pompeo was echoing and expanding on President Trump’s speech from Friday, where he listed some of China’s many crimes against America and the west.
He says the Communist Party has changed over the last decade, and now has aims and attitudes that put Americans at risk.
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

The administration is taking steps to counter China’s increasingly aggressive moves, including revoking the special treatment once given to Hong Kong. Pompeo says this is no longer justified since the former British territory has been brought fully under China’s draconian security laws, in violation of an international treaty. He also said that he hopes European allies will now realize the need to keep China in check.
