Also report by the US State Department: The Elements of the China Challenge
Until now, senior American officials had never spoken publicly with such candor and consistency about the challenge posed by China to our nation. Earlier this year, President Trump asked four of his most senior national security officials, myself [National Security Advisor Robert C. O’Brien], Christopher Wray, William Barr, and Michael Pompeo, to explain current U.S. policy on China to the American people. Over the summer of 2020, we did so in a series of speeches delivered around the country.
Collectively, the remarks contained in this book achieve several important objectives. They educate our citizens about the threat posed by the Chinese Communist Party to their livelihoods, businesses, freedoms, and values.
These speeches also alert our allies and partners so that they, too, should stand up for their own people, and for our mutual interests and values.
The competition with which we are faced is not China versus the United States. It is the Chinese Communist Party, with its MarxistLeninist and mercantilist vision for the world, versus freedom-loving people everywhere.
