Hollow claims by US on caring about Chinese human rights

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo made a statement on Monday in which he accused China of "abusing human rights" and smeared China's resolute measures to maintain national stability in the late 1980s. He also criticized China's governance in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. The US has stepped up its attacks on China on human rights issues simply because Washington's trade war with China is proving to be invalid. Now, the US has decided to impose more pressure on China over human rights issues.

Why did FedEx divert Huawei parcels?

China is very restrained. We hope the US can see rationality and calm from our restraint, rather than weakness. There is always a price to pay for being evil.
