Secretary of State Mike Pompeo declared China the globe’s greatest threat Thursday in a landmark speech at the Nixon Presidential Library as relations between the two nations continue to deteriorate.

In his address, Pompeo urged other nations to unite to stand up to Beijing as China flexes an aggressive 21st century foreign policy in a totalitarian effort to claim global dominance and undermine the existing international order.

“If we don’t act now, ultimately, the [Chinese Communist Party] will erode our freedoms and subvert the rules-based order free societies have built,” Pompeo warned. “If we bend the knee now, our children’s children may be at the mercy of the CCP, whose actions are the primary challenge to the free world. If the free world doesn’t change Communist China, Communist China will change us. There can be no return to past practices just because they’re comfortable or convenient.”
