He's also criticizing previous American administrations going back to Richard Nixon for accommodating Beijing by ignoring fundamental differences in the U.S. and Chinese systems and wishing for reform.

In a speech to the conservative Hudson Institute in New York on Wednesday, Pompeo said China must be confronted rather than coddled on numerous fronts. Those range from its trade practices to human rights and its aggression in the South China Sea and toward Taiwan.

Pompeo's remarks were the second harshly critical speech about China from a senior Trump administration official in a week. Vice President Mike Pence delivered a similar critique of China last Thursday.

Production at the factory, a joint venture with SAIC, is expected to start in October 2020, and it will have an annual capacity of 300,000 vehicles. FAW-Volkswagen plans to manufacture another 300,000 ID. model vehicles in Foshan, China.
