June 6, 2020

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has denounced the Chinese Communist Party’s attempt to politically exploit the death of African American George Floyd during a police arrest that has sparked a wave of protests across the country.

“The Chinese Communist Party’s heartless attempt to take advantage of George Floyd’s tragic death for his own political advantage will fail. At best, Beijing will enforce communism mercilessly. Given its most difficult challenges, the United States guarantees freedom,” he said . Pompeo via his Twitter account.

Last Monday, US National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien said in an interview with ABC that the Chinese “enjoyed” the chaos in the United States and expressed their “joy” with social media posts.

In response, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian described Washington’s allegations that Beijing had somehow influenced the protests in the United States as completely unfounded.
