How China is using the US protests to get its way in Hong Kong

China is using the US protests over the death of George Floyd to help central authorities tighten their grip over the semi-autonomous territory of Hong Kong.

Chinese state-owned media outlets have been filled with images of chaos and violence on American streets, with strong commentary accusing the US of hypocrisy over its human rights position in support of Hong Kong pro-democracy demonstrators.

President Donald Trump has on the one hand revoked Hong Kong’s special status citing China’s “incursion,” and on the other called US protesters “thugs” and “domestic terrorists”.

Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam said foreign critics show “blatant double standards” over moves by Beijing to strengthen control over the territory.

For Chinese Dissidents, Detractors, Hong Kong Is Now A Danger Zone

For many who were critical of the Chinese government, Hong Kong was a convenient place to be. But according to CNN, that bolthole is quickly closing, as China says that they can now be arrested there, even if only transferring through the airport. First under British colonial rule and then after its handover to China, Hong Kong has offered legal protection from the mainland Communist Party for decades.

US was doing great until it was hit by China's coronavirus: Donald Trump

Launching another scathing attack on China, US President Donald Trump addressed the second 'Salute to America' on America's 244th Independence Day, saying that the country was doing great until it got hit by a virus that came from China. "The power of tariffs being imposed on foreign lands that took advantage of the United States for decades enabled us to make great trade deals where there were none. Tens of billions of dollars are now paid to the US treasury by the same countries but then we got hit by the virus that came from China," Trump said. He further said, "We're producing gowns, masks, and surgical equipment. It was almost exclusively made in foreign lands, in particular, China where ironically this virus and others came from. China's secrecy, deceptions, and cover-ups allowed it to spread all over the world and China must be held fully accountable." Speaking on the coronavirus vaccines, Trump said, "We are now unbelievably doing well and are testing on vaccines, treatments and therapeutics. I want to send our thanks to scientists and researchers around the country and the world who are at the forefront of our historic effort to rapidly develop and deliver life-saving treatments and ultimately a vaccine. We are unleashing our nation's scientific brilliance and we will likely have a therapeutic and vaccines solution long before the end of the year."
