Communist China and the Free World's Future is the name of a speech given by United States Secretary of State Michael R. Pompeo on 23 July 2020 at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum in California. In the speech Pompeo rallied that the free world should come together and empower the Chinese people and induce China to change.


  • President Nixon once said he feared he had created a “Frankenstein” by opening the world to the CCP (Chinese Communist Party), and here we are.
  • We know that the People’s Liberation Army is not a normal army, too. Its purpose is to uphold the absolute rule of the Chinese Communist Party elites and expand a Chinese empire, not to protect the Chinese people.
  • We must also engage and empower the Chinese people – a dynamic, freedom-loving people who are completely distinct from the Chinese Communist Party.
  • General Secretary Xi Jinping is a true believer in a bankrupt totalitarian ideology.
  • General Secretary Xi is not destined to tyrannize inside and outside of China forever, unless we allow it.
