The secretary of state for President Trump had a lot to say about President Biden’s “childish” activities with Russia this week. And Mike Pompeo also expressed his views on China this week.
According to former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, allowing China to host the 2022 Winter Olympics would give the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) a boost in credibility comparable to the 1936 Summer Olympics in Nazi Germany.
“We know the history and those of us who have worked with our friends in Israel and have worked on anti-Semitism have talked about never allowing what happened in the 1930s to happen again …” Pompeo told Fox News’s “America Reports” on Thursday, March 18.
“Well, what’s happening in the 1930s is happening in western China today. There are eerie, eerie similarities between the two, and hosting the Olympic Games — as the Germans were able to do in 1936 — gave great credibility to that regime,” Pompeo continued. “We ought not to permit that to happen. The International Olympic Committee has a responsibility to make sure that host for these games deserve it. This regime certainly does not.”
Pompeo went on to say that he felt Biden’s actions with Russia were “childish,” and that China poses “the greatest existential threat” to the US.
