Pence Accuses China Of Undermining Trump Campaign

Vice President Mike Pence escalated Washington's pressure campaign against Beijing on Thursday by accusing China of using a range of tools to interfere in American politics ahead of next month's United States congressional elections.

In his speech at the Hudson Institute on Thursday, Vice President Mike Pence laid out a series of what he described as China's "malign" activities - and alleged some of them were created to target voters in the 2018 election.

"To put it bluntly, President Trump's leadership is working; China wants a different American President", Pence added.

"We will not be intimidated", Mr Pence said of the operation, the latest attempt to counter what Washington sees as Beijing's efforts to limit freedom of navigation in the strategic waters.

Additionally, Pence warned of the influence by Chinese media outlets, warning that China Radio broadcasts in American cities, while China Global Television Network reached more than 75 million Americans.

"China always follows the principle of non-interference in others' internal affairs and we have no interest in meddling in United States internal affairs and elections", she said.

Speaking before the Economic Club of Washington, Kudlow - using language with echoes of the Iraq war - spoke of a "trade coalition of the willing to confront China".

"The global community has already known fully well who wantonly infringes upon others' sovereignty, interferes in others' internal affairs and undermines others' interests".

The report, which resulted from a Trump directive in July 2017 to assess the health of industries whose products and services are important to national defense, also accused China of "systematic theft" of US weapons systems and the illicit transfer of dual-use technology that has upset the military balance between the USA and China.

And no, you can't turn off the Presidential Alert . "In the case of a tornado warning, that lag could get you killed". FEMA didn't force wireless carriers to participate, but as NBC News notes , a lot of them did anyway.

Despite that, Pence said: 'As a senior career member of our intelligence community recently told me, what the Russians are doing pales in comparison to what China is doing across this country'.

Pence also denounced Beijing's crackdown on minority Muslims in the Xinjiang region. "And while our administration will continue to respect our "one China" policy, as reflected in the Three Joint Communiques and the Taiwan Relations Act, let me also say that Taiwan's embrace of democracy shows a better path for all the Chinese people", Pence was to say.

It was Axios, in fact, which last month reported that the White House had "secret anti-China plans" that, based on administration sources, would be launched in the weeks ahead.

Taiwan's presidential office has thanked US Vice President Mike Pence for supporting Taiwan in his speech on US policy towards China on Thursday.

Speaking on behalf of the White House, he held up the recent clash between U.S. and Chinese warships in the South China Sea as an example of Chinese "aggression".

-Senior Chinese officials have tried to influence business leaders to condemn USA trade actions, "leveraging their desire to maintain their operations in China".

"The more open tone of confrontation from Pence will strengthen the perception in China that the ultimate U.S. objective in the [trade] dispute is to contain China's rise", the group's analysts led by Asia director, Michael Hirson, wrote.

Washington has long cited China as a major culprit in the cyber hacking of US government and corporate databases.

'The United States Navy will continue to fly, sail and operate wherever worldwide law allows and our national interests demand, ' Pence said.
