Washington – Today, Rep. Mike Thompson (CA-04) voted to pass H.Res. 11 to establish the Select Committee on the Strategic Competition Between the United States and the Chinese Communist Party.

“Winning the 21st century means ensuring that our economy outcompetes China and we maintain our strategic advantage,” said Thompson. “However, we cannot allow this committee to blatantly traffic in xenophobia and anti-Asian American rhetoric. Focusing on specific policy concerns that relate directly to the People’s Republic of China will ensure that we can secure economic success and protect our national security. I look forward to following the work of the Select Committee and hearing its recommendations to deliver on the issues that will benefit our standing on the global stage.”
