China never fully carried out its commitment to the democratic reform needed to sustain Hong Kong’s wavering autonomy, writes Michael C. Davis. Now, it has brought Hong Kong fully under the national security state governed from Beijing.

In February's “Battle for Hong Kong," FRONTLINE followed pro-democracy protesters and examined their struggle against what they say is growing influence from the communist government of mainland China. WATCH:

Controversial national security laws for Hong Kong have been passed by China. Beijing says it will create stability, but critics say it could undermine civil and political freedoms. #9Today 

China and the United States have accused each other of stoking tension in the strategic waterway at a time of strained relations over everything from the new coronavirus to trade to Hong Kong.

Hong Kong-based journalist Mary Hui says many young, pro-democracy protesters are following a strategy known as "laam caau" that aims to inflict as much damage on China as it inflicts on Hong Kong.

I know President Xi of China very well. He is a great leader who very much has the respect of his people. He is also a good man in a “tough business.” I have ZERO doubt that if President Xi wants to quickly and humanely solve the Hong Kong problem, he can do it. Personal meeting?

The House passed the bipartisan Hong Kong Human Right and Democracy Act last month and the Senate Foreign Relations Committee passed the bipartisan Senate version two months ago. Why won't Senator McConnell act to demonstrate U.S. values and help Hong Kong stand up to China?

Police in Hong Kong fire tear gas against protesters taking part in the first pro-democracy demonstration since China announced plans to impose a new security law on the territory

Had a very good talk with President Xi of China concerning our giant Trade Deal. China has already started large scale purchaes of agricultural product & more. Formal signing being arranged. Also talked about North Korea, where we are working with China, & Hong Kong (progress!).

Watch: Hong Kong police fired volleys of tear gas as thousands took to the streets to march against China’s proposed tough national security legislation for the city

?The Senate unanimously passes the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act. As the author of the United States-Hong Kong Policy Act of 1992 who has advocated for Hong Kong for decades, I am proud to stand with the protestors and hold China accountable.

..deferral to December. It actually helps China more than us, but will be reciprocated. Millions of jobs are being lost in China to other non-Tariffed countries. Thousands of companies are leaving. Of course China wants to make a deal. Let them work humanely with Hong Kong first!

We are winning, big time, against China. Companies & jobs are fleeing. Prices to us have not gone up, and in some cases, have come down. China is not our problem, though Hong Kong is not helping. Our problem is with the Fed. Raised too much & too fast. Now too slow to cut....

What did @realDonaldTrump  promise China in exchange for interfering in our election? An easier deal on trade? Ignoring crackdown on Hong Kong’s pro-democracy movement? Condoning repression of religious freedom? #TruthExposed 

CNN reporting that Trump told China he would keep quiet on Hong Kong protests until trade war was over. What a deal - the U.S. loses hundreds of thousands of jobs from Trump’s insane tariffs and ALSO we abandon the people of Hong Kong. Is this real?
