Still from video.

Per CNBC tonight:

  • President Trump signs two bills backing Hong Kong protesters, the White House says in a statement.
  • The president says he “signed these bills out of respect for President Xi, China, and the people of Hong Kong.”
  • He also says he hopes “Leaders and Representatives of China and Hong Kong will be able to amicably settle their differences.”

President Donald Trump signed two bills supporting the Hong Kong protesters into law on Wednesday, despite Beijing’s repeated objections.

I signed these bills out of respect for President Xi, China, and the people of Hong Kong. They are being enacted in the hope that Leaders and Representatives of China and Hong Kong will be able to amicably settle their differences leading to long term peace and prosperity for all,” POTUS Trump said in a statement released by the White House.

Congress sent the bills to the White House last week, after both chambers passed the legislation with overwhelming bipartisan support.

Per Fox Business, “I stand with Hong Kong, I stand with freedom, I stand with all of the things that we want to do,” POTUS Trump said last week. “But we also are in the process of making the largest trade deal in history and if we could do that, that would be great.”

It reflects the importance that both major parties are putting on the protests in Hong Kong and fears that the Chinese Communist regime will do a Tiananmen Square style crackdown on the semi-autonomous city.

The CNBC video bears some nuance, using the principle of wheat and chaff. There is little doubt that the 45th president is somehow overlooking or underplaying the issue of Hong Kong.

The fact that Beijing hasn’t broken off the talks may be a sign that they do indeed want a deal more badly than President Trump, a claim that the president has often made on the stump and in impromptu press conference.
