(Worthy News) - President Trump on Sunday linked a potential trade deal with China to how Beijing handles the pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong, saying it would be hard to sign a pact if President Xi Jinping orders a crackdown.
“I think it would be very hard to deal if they do violence, if it’s another Tiananmen Square,” Mr. Trump said as he returned to Washington from a working vacation in New Jersey.
Hong Kong protesters again filled the streets of their semi-autonomous island over the weekend. Though protests were peaceful and not marked by the type of clashes that dominated last week’s demonstrations, there is tension over Beijing’s potential response down the road.
