He added, “I so regret that the world — the International Olympic Committee — didn’t move these games out of this place.”
Pompeo went on to lament that the games would elevate Chinese President Xi Jinping.
“I think the games are going to go forward,” he stated. “Corporate America, frankly, who is supporting these games this man, Xi Jinping, who is holding more than a million people in internment camps during the Olympic games, will be stage-center, high, noted, famous, and he will be bolstered. I really, truly do regret it. And I think, John, as we look forward to 2022, one of the places that we could most readily have a military confrontation is, in fact, with the Chinese Communist Party, with Xi Jinping, in the Straits of Taiwan.”
