On the 31st anniversary of Tiananmen Square, the country the world is watching with concern for the safety and rights of peaceable demonstrators is the United States of America. We have 152 days to win back our country’s place in the world. Let’s get to work.

Probably the most depressing symbol yet. Hong Kong refuses permission for the June 4 Tiananmen Square Massacre vigil for the first time in 30 years. The new national security law introduced for HK by Beijing means it will likely never happen again.

Thirty-one years ago, brave Chinese people flooded Tiananmen Square because they hoped a more modern and prosperous China would also become more free. What they got was a massacre of hundreds if not thousands and a society that still cannot even speak about it 31 years later.

Today we remember the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre, when China’s government ordered the military to crush pro-democracy protesters. We must stand with those working for democracy and dignity around the world, and practice and protect those values here at home.

This year, it’s illegal for Hong Kong residents to commemorate the Tiananmen Square massacre. This happened anyway. Their courage is staggering.

In 1990, @realDonaldTrump  said this about June 4, 1989, “When the students poured into Tiananmen Square, the Chinese government almost blew it ...they were vicious, they were horrible, but they put it down with strength. That shows you the power of strength."

28 years ago, we traveled to Tiananmen Square to honor the courage & sacrifice of the students, workers & ordinary citizens who stood for the dignity & human rights that all people deserve. To this day, we remain committed to sharing their story with the world. #Tiananmen30
