At the of 8:45 mark in the interview, Pompeo said the following about China’s recent strong arm tactics in Hong Kong:
Well, COVID-19 is not the reason for the delay in the election. The reason for the delay, there was scheduled to be an election in Hong Kong is September 6th. The reason for the delay is that the Chinese Communist Party candidates would be crushed and the freedom loving people of Hong Kong would prevail and the leadership in Beijing simply can’t permit that to happen.
Look, this is part of what we are seeing happen all across the threat from the Chinese Communist Party, increased denial of freedom for people in their own country and then extending that.”
