Mike Pompeo, in his first public statement after leaving his post as secretary of state, highlighted his work and above all mentioned the efforts of his department to put the brakes on the subjugation to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), both within the United States and abroad. At the same time, he hoped that the new administration would continue with the political line of confronting the CCP when necessary.
Pompeo, during an interview with Newsmax, was clear that incoming secretary of state, Antony Blinken, continue the policies to confront the CCP and its perverse actions even in the least imagined areas of society.
“I hope this becomes a true commitment on the behalf of America, a bipartisan commitment to challenge the Chinese Communist Party threat wherever it poses a threat to American freedoms,” he said.
The Trump administration as a whole, and particularly the State Department led by Pompeo, has maintained strongly active policies against the Chinese communist regime, and last Tuesday Pompeo accused the CCP in a press release of committing genocide against Muslim Uighurs and members of other ethnic and religious minorities in Xinjiang since March 2017.
“After careful examination of the available facts, I have determined that since at least March 2017, the People’s Republic of China (PRC), under the direction and control of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), has committed crimes against humanity against the predominantly Muslim Uyghurs and other members of ethnic and religious minority groups in Xinjiang.” Pompeo said in the statement.
During the interview with Newsmax, Pompeo reported that this conclusion was reached after working with countries around the world and government organizations to ensure that the facts were understood with enough precision to be able to say very clearly what is happening.
“There have been crimes against humanity and the fact is that the Chinese Communist Party has committed genocide and is continuing to do so,” Pompeo insisted.
He also acknowledged that he would have liked to have reached a conclusion earlier, but the complexity of the case prevented that from happening.
“When you make such an important statement it is absolutely critical you have done the analysis thoroughly and completely,” Pompeo said.
In the statement on Tuesday, the State Department detailed that the CCP committed crimes against humanity, referring to the detention of more than 1 million Muslim Uighurs subjecting the population to forced labor, forced sterilization, and torture followed by death.
The statement further strained the already tense ties between the world’s two largest economies. But the reality shows that no country has had the courage to confront the CCP the way the Trump administration did during the last four years, and this logically provoked the CCP’s discontent.
Now it remains to be seen what will happen next under the Joe Biden administration, although despite the wishes expressed by Pompeo and most Americans, the known connections between the Democrats and the communist regime would indicate that the bilateral relationship could change, and unfortunately in favor of the CCP’s interests and its globalist agenda.
