Pompeo 'smears' own image by attacking CPC - GT Editor

United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo "smears" his own image by attacking the Chinese Communist Party, Global Times Editor-in-chief Hu Xijin said in a tweet on Friday.

Hu, whose opinion western media usually describes as in line with officials from Beijing, wrote: "Pompeo's attack on China and the Communist Party of China is ideological instigation, which goes against the fact that the world and China are highly integrated in interests." He added: "The CPC has changed China's fate, reshaped Chinese people's lives and insisted friendly engagement with all countries. Pompeo's malicious attack on CPC only smears his own image, making himself look politically bigoted, extreme and dishonest."

Speaking on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall earlier in the day, Pompeo compared Beijing's human rights record to that of East Germany, saying it was "horrifyingly similar."
