Hudson Institute China Center presents episode six of Evening Chats with Mike Pompeo: A Message to the Chinese People. In this series, Seventieth US Secretary of State Michael R. Pompeo speaks directly to the Chinese people about the Chinese Communist Party and US-China relations.
In this episode, Pompeo celebrates that the largest pool of international students in the United States are Chinese students, but laments that the CCP too often spoils this exchange of knowledge. Pompeo explains how the CCP intimidates Chinese students studying abroad, spends money to influence American educational institutions, and steals American research. Pompeo urges us to call out this behavior in the defense of academic freedom, open inquiry, and the competition of ideas.
