Pompeo Warns State Governments of Chinese Influence

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo continued his theme of hostile Cold War rhetoric aimed at Beijing in a speech on Wednesday at Wisconsin’s state capitol building. Pompeo warned a group of Wisconsin state-level lawmakers about the Chinese government’s efforts to influence US state governments.

“Know that when you are approached by a Chinese diplomat, it is likely not in the spirit of cooperation or friendship,” Pompeo said. “Know too that these approaches may happen from Chinese nationals or Americans working with CCP-linked interests.”

Besides state governments, Pompeo also warned of Chinese “influence and espionage campaigns at the municipal and city levels.”
