Author and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy spoke with former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on how “woke capitalism” could give China an advantage over the United States during a Fox News special presented by Fox Nation.
Ramaswamy told Pompeo that China is “understanding the kinks in the armor in the American system” to their advantage. He says one of the kinks in the armor is the “woke movement” and its impact on “racial identity politics in the United States.”
“They understand this game far more deeply than any of us do and I think that they are now using wokeism as a geopolitical tool to advance their own agenda,” Ramaswamy said.
Pompeo replied that America knows the “kinks in China’s system” as well and Americans “cannot continue to let them walk all over us.”
“They want us to believe that America is in decline because they believe it. I actually think they believe America is in decline. I don’t believe it. But, left to its devices, it is a risk.”
Pompeo stressed that that’s why President Biden needs to stand up to China to show that America is not in decline. Furthermore, Pompeo argued that America needs to focus on all avenues to counter China including: commercial, diplomatic, military strategy artificial intelligence and technology.
“We have to make sure and harness the American brainpower and American energy to go crush them. We can. I’m convinced of it,” he added.
Ramaswamy ripped back the curtain on the dirty secrets of corporate America and unveiled what he says is a defining scam of the century — woke capitalism — during “Woke, Inc.” Sunday.
Ramaswamy sat down with Tucker Carlson, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, “Fox & Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Fox News contributor Lara Trump for the one-hour special that dove into the secrets of corporate America.
Ramaswamy’s upcoming book, “Woke, Inc.: Inside Corporate America’s Social Justice Scam,” hits retailers Aug. 17 and the Fox News special of the same name offers an exclusive glimpse into the author’s criticism of the woke takeover of the corporate system. Viewers hear Kilmeade discuss the dangers of critical race theory, McCarthy explain why the world has gone “back to the dark ages” and Ramaswamy and Pompeo detail how China takes advantage of the “woke movement” in America.
