How does the Trump administration plan to counter China’s growing aggression? Following Beijing’s announcement that it would impose a new national security law threatening Hong Kong’s freedom, the administration said it would begin the process of rolling back America’s special relationship with the city.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo joined Dany and Marc to explain the administration’s strategies toward China, Iran, and Venezuela. He also touches on the International Criminal Court’s investigation into alleged US war crimes in Afghanistan as well as partisan attacks on his office.

Prior to serving as Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo was the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency from January 2017 to April 2018. He served as a congressman from Kansas from 2011-2017, and served on the House Intelligence Committee, Energy and Commerce Committee, and House Select Benghazi Committee.

    I really like Mike Pompeo. I figure he’s getting flak because he’s over the target. You’re right, though,that our representatives are spending a lot of time on unimportant things (because its easier).
