The US has gravely interfered in China’s internal affairs?

Last month, China imposed sanctions on over two dozen officials from the US, including Mike Pompeo. The sanctions include travel bans and business-related restrictions.

“Over the past few years, some anti-China politicians in the United States, out of their selfish political interests and prejudice and hatred against China and showing no regard for the interests of the Chinese and American people, have planned, promoted and executed a series of crazy moves which have gravely interfered in China’s internal affairs, undermined China’s interests, offended the Chinese people, and seriously disrupted China-U.S. relations,” China’s foreign ministry said in a statement.

The question that we ask is how much of interference these were in China’s international affairs and how grave they were?

The US launched a trade war against China in 2018 with former President Donald Trump championing the case against Beijing.

This lead to a massive war of words and tit-for-tat sanctions between both countries.

China has basically won that war with Trump’s defeat in November, but President Joe Biden is yet to pronounce on the status of the war versus China.

Internally, the trade war caused some Chinese industry to slow down, it also caused exports to fall and this may have had a direct impact on farmers, manufacturers and traders.

And if the pain was so severe for China to hit back at the Trump administration with sanctions after they lost the elections, then we believe the trade war was working.

It was hurting China where it should the most, as was Trump’s intentions, that is at the heart of the Chinese industrial and agricultural enterprise.

TECH WAR

Nevertheless, China is now at the forefront of tech war that may disrupt America, says Pompeo in an interview with Fox.

The former Secretary of State on Feb. 4 that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) will use artificial intelligence to comb through troves of personal data on U.S. citizens recovered from Chinese technology and apps and use the intelligence as a weapon to strong-arm the United States.

“They will use that information. They will use artificial intelligence to gather it up. And then they will turn around and tell us that if we don’t act in a way that’s consistent with what the Chinese Communist Party wants, they will impose actual costs on the United States,” Pompeo told Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo.

“The flip side is these technologies that infiltrate the United States and infiltrate Europe are things that our kids use, that we use, that are in our cars, that are in our television sets, that are in our handsets and phones. This information, also American information, whether it’s our personal information about where we live and who we hang out with, or information about our medical conditions and our DNA, that information goes back to the Chinese national security state,” Pompeo said.

Pompeo warned U.S. allies about the dangers posed by the CCP.

“I spent a lot of time traveling the world and talking to leaders from Europe, to Asia, to South America, reminding them that while China might show up with a little of money, the intent behind that was to create leverage and power and that they ought not to join an idea that is anti-Western, anti-Democratic, in any important way.”

Pompeo says the CCP has already infiltrated the United States and the levers of power.

“Not only has the CCP destroyed millions of American jobs, but they’re behind the gates. They’re lobbying members of Congress. They’re working our school boards and city councils to try to change our way of life,” he wrote on Twitter on Feb. 3.

“We, along with our allies, must take the China threat seriously.”
