Pence set to accuse China of trying to undermine Trump

Pence set to accuse China of trying to undermine Trump”

Washington D.C. Oct 05: United States Vice President Mike Pence on Thursday launched a scathing attack on China, accusing them of using predatory economic practices and military aggression against the USA and trying to cripple President Donald Trump's chances of winning re-election.

Pence also accused Beijing of showing its "aggression" when a Chinese navy vessel recently sailed in the dispute-ridden South China Sea near the USS Decatur destroyer, which according to U.S. officials had to make a quick detour to avoid collision.

President Donald Trump first charged the Chinese government with meddling in the US election last week during a United Nations Security Council session.

Pence's speech comes a week after the Republican president accused China during a meeting of the U.N. Security Council of interfering in American elections to help his Democratic rivals. "China is meddling in America's democracy".

According to a report by Bloomberg News on Thursday, the Chinese military inserted tiny chips in United States computer equipment manufactured in China, part of a vast effort by Beijing to steal USA technology secrets.

In a speech to the Hudson Institute on Thursday, Vice President Pence amplified the charge leveled by President Trump last week.

The Trump administration plans to address supply bottlenecks and potential failure points, using the same strategy employed during the Cold War and World War II, pumping millions of dollars into USA companies that produce items critical to the USA military, like high-performance aluminum, steel, tungsten and carbon fibers.

Pence said Thursday that "while our administration will continue to respect our One China Policy".

Google, Pence said, "should immediately end development of the "Dragonfly" app that will strengthen Communist Party censorship and compromise the privacy of Chinese customers".

Our intelligence community says that China is targeting USA state and local governments and officials to exploit any divisions between federal and local levels on policy.

China's "aggressive industrial policies" have already impacted some critical capabilities, including solar cells for military use, flat-panel aircraft displays and the processing of rare earth elements, the report states.

Pence will assert that China's actions surpass those of Russian Federation in trying to shape American opinion.

China expressed its resolute opposition to a series of "groundless" accusations from US Vice President Mike Pence regarding the nation's domestic and foreign policies on Friday, saying that any malicious slander of China is futile.

"On China's side, the more open tone of confrontation from Mr Pence will strengthen the perception in China that the ultimate U.S. objective in the dispute is to contain China's rise".

The vice president, a favourite of conservative US Christians, also criticised China on human rights, voicing disappointment that rising prosperity has not led to reforms.

- Beijing compelled Delta Airlines to publicly apologize for not calling Taiwan a "province of China" on its website, he said.

Can the U.S. and China resolve their differences?

"These actions threaten the stability of the Taiwan Strait - and the United States of America condemns them". But he said the claim that China was working to defeat Trump at the ballot box "rings hollow" and the approach could be counterproductive.

In a lengthy report released Thursday evening, the administration asserted that China "represents a significant and growing risk to the supply of materials and technologies deemed strategic and critical to USA national security".
