'Inappropriate' for China to target US businesses - Pompeo

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo (pictured) claimed on Monday it was "completely inappropriate" for Beijing to retaliate against the American companies whose employees "exercise their fundamental freedoms in the United States" and have spoken against the Chinese government.

"We just think that makes no sense. And we'd encourage every company to make - take a good, close look ensuring that the kinds of things, the reciprocity that President Trump has been demanding from China, actually takes place," Pompeo stated.

The official went on to accuse the Chinese government of stealing the companies intellectual property, forcing technology transfers, and "making it very difficult to make a profit" in the country.
