Today, the White House releases a statement, the following is an excerpt from the full text.
For decades, Donald J. Trump was one of the few prominent Americans to recognize the true nature of the Chinese Communist Party and its threat to America’s economic and political way of life. Now, under President Trump’s leadership, the United States is taking action to protect our nation and its partners from an increasingly assertive China. We are no longer turning a blind eye to the People’s Republic of China’s conduct nor are we hiding our criticism of its Communist Party behind closed doors.
The speeches included in this book, starting with Vice President Mike Pence’s groundbreaking remarks on October 2018 and ending with President Trump’s call to action at the 75th session of the United Nations General Assembly, are a key component of the Administration’s effort to protect the American people.
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 Marxist- Leninist and mercantilist vision for the world, versus freedom-loving people everywhere.
President Trump’s two speeches, from May and September 2020, hold the Chinese Communist Party accountable for the Covid-19 pandemic. The President made clear that Beijing’s blunders no longer affect only the Chinese people, as they did under Mao Zedong. They impact the entire world. President Trump points out that beyond the Covid-19 pandemic, China’s environmental devastation in the Pacific and illegal over-fishing in every ocean are but two examples of how China treats the rest of the world.
On the occasion of China’s ending of the “one country, two systems” construct that had guaranteed Hong Kong’s freedom until 2047, the President announced a range of significant penalties, noting the “plain facts [of what China did] cannot be overlooked or swept aside.”
President Trump made plain in his May speech, “The United States wants an open and constructive relationship with China, but achieving that relationship requires us to vigorously defend our national interests.” This book explains what President Trump means by his call for a vigorous defense of our national interests vis a vis China.
The Chinese Communist Party prefers not to have the information and messages contained in this book shared. It does not want people around the world to know what the Party really believes, is doing, and is planning.
