Mike sends a message

“The American people, and I hope people all across the world, understand the risk to the globe, to freedom-loving countries and democracies all around the world, that are presented with the actions of the Chinese Communist Party”


US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tells Breitbart News that China was a risk to “the United States and all free nations”, referencing how Beijing was aiming to control “straits and sea lanes all around the world”. The language marks a further escalation in the Cold War talk coming from the Trump administration (see WiC495).
