FAST FIVE: CCP Mouthpiece Slams "Habitual Liar" Pompeo, Says US 'Incapable' Of Judging Hong Kong's Autonomy
Without the US 'special status', HK might lose its international cachet as well, and eventually become just another Chinese city. Indeed, without such easy access to the global economy, Hong Kong will become just an extension of Shenzen, which lies just across the border on the mainland.
Today, I reported to Congress that Hong Kong is no longer autonomous from China, given facts on the ground.
The United States stands with the people of Hong Kong.
For the last day or so, the editor of China's Global Times has been taunting the US in a series of tweets, daring it to use its navy and come save the protesting Hong Kongers, some of whom have written messages begging Trump to interfere.
While there's no question rescinding HK's special status will be interpreted as another economy attack by Washington.
