Should the US get more involved with Hong Kong protests?
Should the US get more involved with Hong Kong protests? Should the US get more involved with Hong Kong protests?Live pictures from Hong Kong airport. The situation seems to be calm at the moment, a traveler’s trying to get where they’re going we’re standing by to see if there are more protests taking shape there. That’S you know. Airport has been closed at times it’s been Frost, but you will see people there, protesters the signs all over social media, saying sorry for the inconvenience, but we are fighting for our Liberty, so we’ll see how things develop their we’ll keep an eye on it. Calling America to get more involved in supporting the pro-democracy protesters in General, Robert Spalding, what talked about this a little bit? There is a lot of pressure on this president to stay and do more than he has. You saw the clip there were. He said. I hope everything works out. Okay, when other moving people to the Border hope no one gets killed. What should the leader of the United States be staying at this moment? You know a little bit more than 240 years ago. Those kids would have been our founding fathers. Actually, fighting for our freedom, you know rather than Hong Kong airport, it was Boston Harbor, where they’re tossing tea and soap, and the King of England was calling them terrorists Uso. One of the things we talked about in the National Security strategy has American needed to get back to talking about our principles. Not just open-market sleeved. Well, but open markets and Democratic principles lead to a better world Malaysian back in Tehran in 2009, and they were so much criticism of the Obama Administration for that not getting more involved, they should have done more about this today, saying Obama remain silent during the 2009 Iranian protests, education of the highest order Trump, must not remain silent on Hong Kong. What they want to do. They believe that we’re so many revolutions because of who we are, and so we actually have to, because otherwise nobody thi stand up the UK or Germany. This has to be America that really stands for Democratic principles, singing our national anthem, but it seems that they’re trying to clean an appeal to any organized out there that will come to their aid. We were going to France for help when we were fighting for on Democracy still yet there looking for outside help protesters in Hong Kong or fighting. For that same reason, even in the face of China’s aggression and police brutality, their standing by their worthy cause. We hear their demands for freedom and support them in their mission, so this against the backdrop obviously of Iran, trade negotiations. Men are calling it a trade war with China. How does all of that complicate the situation with regard to, or even if we continue to have negotiation? There is no way to convince them to change their waiting for 2020. They want a new president. They think that they can get one talk about. We should do halting trade negotiations with Beijing station senior Chinese Communist Party officials revoking us visas, a party leaders and their families, curtailing student visas for China, Nationals, Chinese Nationals, the positions in international organizations and revising the Hong Kong Policy Act. How likely do you think? Any of those options are to be executed. Hong Kong is the window to us Western Capital markets, so their ability to get US Dollars comes through the relation there special, our special relationship with long and so msci emerging market index where’s, which means our retirement funds, are pouring billions of dollars into China. That is something that’s really problematic. Given everything is going on that there are a number of bipartisan Kevin McCarthy, the top Republican in the house. We see if he would have judged who is it all of them, and many other voices coming together unusual in these days to see something big that has bipartisan support. But it looks like this is one of those coalescing moments I used to make the world safe for democracy when we were making the world safe for oppression. Thank you for stopping in this is your area of expertise. Trump facing pressure to speak out against crackdown; former National Security Council official Brigadier Gen. Robert Spalding weighs in.
