    Published on August 15, 2019

    US President Donald Trump has urged China to humanely resolve the violent stand-off with pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong. This comes amid growing concerns that Beijing is considering direct intervention in the crisis.

    In a series of tweets, Donald Trump linked a possible trade deal with Beijing to a peaceful resolution to the political unrest that has roiled the semi-autonomous Chinese city for 10 weeks. He said, millions of jobs are being lost in China to other non-tariffed countries, adding that thousands of companies are leaving.
