Trump Stands Up for Hong Kong’s Pro-Democracy Protesters, Immediately Gets Threatened by Beijing

The American democratic experiment is worth promoting, even in the face of Chinese angst.

If there is one thing that America is going to do, it’s stand up for the tenets of democracy, far and wide.

We have been truly blessed in this nation, to enact the unprecedented vision of the Founding Fathers.  They believed in something radical, something unique when they began to form what was to become one of the greatest nations to ever exist, and it has been our responsibility to share this liberty-laden experiment with the world at large.  A government of the people, for the people works, and the spread of democracy is certainly in the best interest of populations far and wide.

So, as Hong Kong continues to fight for their rights against the authoritarian communism of China, the US has no choice but to stand with these freedom fighters…even if it means catching some flak from the mainland.

Trump signed the bills, which were approved by near unanimous consent in the House and Senate, even as he expressed some concerns about complicating the effort to work out a trade deal with China’s President Xi Jinping.

“I signed these bills out of respect for President Xi, China, and the people of Hong Kong,” Trump said in a statement. “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.”

China responded predictably, chastising the United States for their promotion of democracy and vowing retaliation.
