Pompeo: We can’t go back to the decades of appeasing the Chinese Communist Party
Secretary of State criticized the Obama administration’s foreign policy for President-elect Biden
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo expressed concern that America could return to what he called “appeasement politics” if President-elect Joe Biden takes office in January.
Biden pledged to pursue an active foreign policy and protect American interests in all regions of the world.
However, in an interview with Fox News on Tuesday, Pompeo said that “America’s biggest concern should be that we return to appeasement politics.”.
The Republican secretary of state recalled that the Barack Obama administration, in which Joe Biden was vice president, used the term “lead while remaining in the background.”.
“This is the exact opposite of what President Trump did,” Pompeo said. “We were very realistic, whether it was about moving the embassy to Jerusalem or eliminating [Iranian general] Qasem Soleimani, reducing the threat from Iran or recognizing, for the first time in 40 years, that the CCP poses a huge threat to the security of the American people, and also, in truth, jobs and our American economy “.
“I think the actions of the Obama administration have made the situation worse for the Americans,” Pompeo continued. “I think that jobs and people’s lives are less secure than they have been in the last four years. And I hope that the president, who takes office in mid-January next year, will take a firmer, smarter, more confident approach to national security than they had in those eight years. “.
Biden’s team has not yet officially responded to Pompeo’s remarks.
