During President Donald trump’s administration, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo made it very clear that the forced abortions, forced sterilizations and other human rights abuses carried out by communist China against the Uyghurs constituted “genocide.”
But Joe Biden’s own press secretary couldn’t even bring herself to use the term today and call those human rights violations genocide during a press conferee.
Pomepo’s recent announcement marked the first time any nation called China’s actions “genocide.”
“For the past four years, this Administration has exposed the nature of the Chinese Communist Party and called it what it is: a Marxist-Leninist regime that exerts power over the long-suffering Chinese people through brainwashing and brute force. We have paid particular attention to the CCP’s treatment of the Uyghur people, a Muslim minority group that resides largely in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region in Western China,” Pompeo wrote in a statement on Tuesday.

Pompeo has long called for an end to China’s treatment of the Uighur people and in his statement, he cited the imprisonment, forced labor, torture, abortion and sterilization as ongoing genocidal actions carried out by the Chinese government.
But asked whether Biden agrees with the term, his Press Secretary Jen Psaki couldn’t say if he agrees with that assessment.
“The president has spoken before to the horrific treatment of Uyghurs but I don’t have more for you on it,”
.@PressSec is asked whether the Biden admin agrees with the assessment by the Trump admin that China is committing a genocide:
