China’s foreign ministry
Foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told a daily briefing that Pompeo was trying to alienate the Communist Party from the Chinese people and stigmatize China’s domestic and foreign policies.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo criticized the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in an interview with Fox News on Nov 4. He reiterated that the CCP is different from the Chinese people.
Pompeo delivered a fiery speech on Oct 30 at the Hudson Institution, describing how America has “taken on the challenge” posed by the “communist government” in China. Pompeo said that the U.S. must ‘confront challenges’ from Beijing ‘head-on’
In June 2019, the Chinese government’s mouthpiece “Global Times” criticized US Secretary of State Pompeo as “an extreme hardliner at the White House”. He “redefined the traditional understanding of the chief diplomat’s role among the world’s major powers with his signature reckless behavior”.
