He also held out an olive branch at the end too. Totally correct in his statement about China, not America, de-coupling with the world. Refusing to engage with anyone that voices any concerns about the direction their nation is taking. Feelings hurt nonsense.

Comes down to the simple fundamental question, is conversation possible with a collective? We shall see.

It's true what he says about China, Just ask Ron Vara, a world-renown expert on the country.

United States is as corrupt as China! Chinese will never bow down to the US! China can suffer and survive the trade war but Americans can’t in the long run!

Well, I guess the Baghdadi raid has passed, so time for Donnie to gin up another distraction - he must know the open impeachment testimony next week will be devastating - "Mr Bolton, please describe why you refereed to Mr Giuilani as a "Hand Grenade ready to go off", and the Ukraine negotiations as a "drug deal?"

China is a strategic adversary that tries to take advantage of the US wherever possible. It also owns a significant amount of US debt.

Russia is an enemy that attacked our democracy in 2015/6 and continues to this day. It is also trying to subvert our interests all over the world.

"Today we're finally realizing the degree to which the Chinese Communist Party is truly hostile to the United States and our values," Pompeo told the conservative Hudson Institute in New York.

Uh-huh...so why do Donnie and Ivanka still get their clothes and shoe lines made in Chinese sweatshop factories?

No doubt it will be tough for us to forgo cheap dollar items at WalMart but I think we will pull through. Next stop "Made in Vietnam".

Captain Obvious makes an appearance.

MikeH: China can suffer and survive the trade war but Americans can’t in the long run!

You are probably right. If a Dem wins next year they will fold to China in short order. Too many in the Democrat bastion of Silicon Valley are beholden to cheap Chinese manufacturers. The ChiCom government doesn’t have any problem inflicting pain in their people for strategic gains. American politicians can’t look past the next election.

United States is as corrupt as China! 

Not by a long shot.

China can suffer and survive the trade war...

But according to some posters here it's not China but American importers, consumers and farmers who are doing the suffering.

... but Americans can’t in the long run!

Sure we can. Our economy is the strongest ever and growing stronger whilst - oh my....

"Today we're finally realizing the degree to which the Chinese Communist Party is truly hostile to the United States and our values," Pompeo told the conservative Hudson Institute in New York.

Pompeo highlighted China's clampdown on Hong Kong protests and incarceration of Uighur Muslims and said Beijing was seeking international domination -- implicitly rejecting US experts who argue that the communist leaders are fundamentally pragmatic.

politicians nowadays talked thru their axx. In the first paragraph, he says the Chinese are hostile towards the US, then gives examples in Hong Kong and Uighur. Hong Kong and Uighur doesn’t belongs to US?

Where’s the freedom in Liberia, Venezuela, Catalonia...? We have too much politicians without morals in power, that why the world are so messed up.

When "The Impeachment date of Donald Trump" is near, the "Trump Group" can throw out whatever dirty things or defamation about China or Chinese to help his own get out of the hostile situation around him! 

He might keep lashing China even if Trump is convicted of treason and thrown into a jail cell! I am very pity the POTUS is such  a very nasty person as low and shallow like him! May God help him!

"The Impeachment date of Donald Trump"

If that day actually comes, Trump is gonna yup it up, and continue to grow the economy, build the wall and get us out of endless wars.

Well, China certainly has no friends. China is really bad a lip service. The U.S. has friends because the U.S. is really good at lip service. How many Wikileaks is it gonna take before the hostility of the U.S. government is properly recognized?

...it's one in which a Leninist party rules and everyone must think and act according to the will of the Communist elites

Substitute those bait words as; Communists and Leninist with (insert your least favorite political party) and Conservative, and tell me if the message isn't really that much different?

They aren't actually "communists" any more that they are "Leninists" - they've become a ethno-nationalist totalitarian dictatorship...

They've replaced "commnism" with "nationalism" and remain a Socialist state. That makes China "National Socialists", what the world use to call Nazis. The term Chinazi is speading day by day. And yes, they are are seeking regional hegemony and global dominance. The most militarily and economically powerful dictatorship in history.

"Today we're finally realizing the degree to which the Chinese Communist Party is truly hostile to the United States and our values,"

Given the dramatic change in the US "values" it should come as no surprise that many nations around the world are hostile to them.  What are US "values" these days anyway?

"That's not a future that I want... and it's not a future that the freedom-loving people of China" want, he said.

Spoken by someone who appears to have zero knowledge of both past and modern Chinese history, beliefs and the population's relationship to their Mother country.

@Norman Goodman: U.S. is really good at lip service

Ask the Iraqi people and many people from around the world inlucing the closest ally who pays daily for US military occupations! They will tell you of what they think and what  is real!

I think we do, but given the fact that Democrats would capitulate to keep the status quo of China and US swamp relationships the way they were in the past, no one is surprised.

So, you're admitting that you and Serrano are the same person.

No, but the gloves are coming off.

As in Ivanka's gloves she sells at Macy's are coming off the line in Shanghai...

Come on Trumpers - if China is so bad, why do the Trumps get their shirts, ties and shoes made there cheating US textile workers out of a job?
