Recommended Posts

Ref: Hong Kong Human Rights and Development Act (2019)

On Tuesday the 26th, the Chinese Foreign Ministry summoned the US Ambassador to express its displeasure over the passage of two Congressional bills which at the time awaited President Trump's signature into law.

On Wednesday the 27th, hours after the last student holdouts (~100) withdrew from the Polytechnic University campus, Trump signed the HKHR&D Act and a related bill. These will prohibit the sale of non-lethal weapons to Hong Kong and targeted sanctions on gov't officials who "abused" human rights.

The People's Republic is "furious".

A celebration is planned on Thursday in Hong Kong for passage and the signning of the HRH&D Act.

OPINE: Can anyone say "trade war"?  China will respond.
