Secretary of State Michael Pompeo said the U.S. is “not finished yet” when it comes to getting tough on China, with just over two months left in the Trump administration.

Pompeo used some of his strongest rhetoric to date to describe the Chinese government in a Tuesday speech to the Ronald Reagan Institute detailing the administration’s China policies. He called the Chinese Communist Party a “Marxist-Leninist monster” whose rule is “authoritarian, brutish and antithetical to human freedom.”
