Economic clout makes China tougher challenge for U.S. than Soviet Union was - Pompeo

PRAGUE (Reuters) - China's global economic power makes the communist country in some ways a more difficult foe to counter than the Soviet Union during the Cold War, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on a visit to the Czech Republic on Wednesday.

Pompeo called on countries around Europe to rally against the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), which he said leverages its economic might to exert its influence around the world.

"What's happening now isn't Cold War 2.0," Pompeo said in a speech to the Czech Senate. "The challenge of resisting the CCP threat is in some ways much more difficult."

"The CCP is already enmeshed in our economies, in our politics, in our societies in ways the Soviet Union never was."

Hey Pompeo your bloated brother Donald Trump knows all about that since most of the stuff he sells is manufactured in China.

1. He's right.

 

Russia never owned a Trillion dollars of our debt, nor manufactured *most* of what we consume including medication - hell, they even own Smithfield foods (the company who remained open while people were contracting and dying from COVID).

They are not a paper tiger.

2. Pompeo 'A&&' actually knows something? I'm so surprised that he knows this and that it's taken...

almost the entire term of this corrupt administration to even admit this fact regarding China? Anybody worth their salt (a five year old) knew about the China import/export and/or the extensive business ties that exist between China and the US.

Pompeo is an idiot and is proving it on a daily basis. Must be hard to constantly prove that one is dumber than the current POS in the WH so the POS in the WH won't have a temper tantrum or pop a vein.
