Trump administration asks Google to shun China Search project

Trump administration asks Google to shun China Search project

The strategy was evident on Thursday, when US Vice President Mike Pence accused China of using trade and its military to undermine the US political system and exploit American businesses.

Google should stop work on a search engine created to comply with Chinese censorship rules, said Vice President Mike Pence.

Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying accused Pence of making "unfounded accusations" in his remarks made to a Washington think tank on Thursday, and called on the U.S. to stop slandering China. "The American people will play the decisive role - and in fact, they already are...", Pence added.

In what was billed as a major policy address, Mr. Pence sought to build on Trump's speech at the United Nations last week in which he alleged that China was trying to interfere in the pivotal November 6 mid-term elections.

Beijing is not interested in meddling in elections in the United States, said Cunin, urging the USA side "to stop the baseless accusations and slander".

Speaking before the Economic Club of Washington, Kudlow - with echoes of the Iraq war - spoke of a "trade coalition of the willing to confront China".

He said that Chinese security agencies have masterminded "the wholesale theft of American technology".

The US military relies far too heavily on China and other nations to provide vital components for its weapons and equipment, a new White House study has found. "Now China wants to turn these voters against our administration". "Fortunately, Americans aren't buying it".

"Beijing is pursuing a comprehensive and coordinated campaign to undermine support for the President", Pence said.

"Google's reformed search engine, which has been codenamed "Dragonfly" would strengthen Communist Party censorship and compromise the privacy of Chinese customers", Pence said, since the United States ordered Google to end its Chinese Search engine "Dragonfly" project.

Bachman said it appeared that Pence's speech was foreshadowing "a whole-of-government response from the United States, so it looks like the relationship is going to continue to deteriorate". We will not be intimidated.

In response to Pence's remarks, Taiwan's Presidential Office expressed its appreciation to the US government for its recognition of the country's democracy and support for its worldwide space.

He demanded that Google immediately halt the development of its "Dragonfly" search engine for the Chinese market on the grounds that it would facilitate "censorship and compromise the privacy" of users, ignoring the fact that the USA government is engaged in precisely such efforts-with the full complicity of Google and other technology companies.

"But the vice president's speech was a very important document, where we tried to lay out what we could, really, in public at this point, about this unprecedented Chinese effort", Pence said. It is an unprecedented roll-out of President Donald Trump's China strategy that could plunge the two nations into a more unsafe tit-for-tat cycle than their trade war.

Pence was to address the issue, saying that the USA intelligence community has determined that China is targeting U.S. state and local governments and officials to exploit any divisions between federal and local levels on policy.

The vice president's charge of election interference was part of a broader indictment of China's growing power and assertiveness.

The administration has responded not only with tariffs on Chinese exports but also with new restrictions on Chinese investment in the US and a military buildup of its own.

USA intelligence agencies assess that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 presidential election to boost Trump over his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton through hacking and releasing sensitive documents and social media manipulation.
