POMPEO ON HANNITY: China’s ‘Disinformation Campaign’ Put Countless Lives at Risk
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo spoke with Sean Hannity Wednesday night on the global Coronavirus crisis; saying China’s “disinformation campaign” in the early days of the outbreak put “countless lives at risk.”
“We did call in the Chinese Ambassador… This disinformation campaign which began when we began to call-out this risk that was created. They were the first to know, and they wasted valuable days; allowing hundreds of thousands of people to leave Wuhan to travel to places like Italy. They tried to suppress this information,” said Pompeo.
“The Chinese Communist Party didn’t get it right and put countless lives at risk as a result of that,” he added. “We have had an incredibly difficult time getting professional medical people into China.”
