    Trump has ended that.



    None of those people you mention hold a candle to Hitler. Let not your heart be troubled.
    Trump has not ended anything, except the reputation of the US a rational actor in the world. Trade will continue, despite Mr. Tariff Man. We will win in some cases, lose in others. Trump knows that.

    And my heart is troubled when Trump supports Hitler-like policies.

    Beijing is refraining from a violent crackdown on the protesters so far because of Trump's warning. Donald Trump warned China that carrying out a Tiananmen Square-style crackdown on Hong Kong pro-democracy protesters would harm trade talks between the two countries. "I think it'd be very hard to deal if they do violence, I mean, if it's another Tiananmen Square," Trump told reporters in New Jersey. "I think it's a very hard thing to do if there's violence."

    This is laughable. Like Donald Trump scares China's president-for-life and Communist purge survivor Xi Jinping.


    I'll be voting straight Democrat as long as the GOP remains the Trump & Putin Party. This is not a party that can be trusted with power. Not now. Not in the foreseeable future. And perhaps not in my lifetime.

    Xi is against using the PLA in Hong Kong. Trump knows this so Trump is trying to exploit Hong Kong in the trade war.

    Xi wouldn't hesitate to use the PLA's People's Armed Police in HKG but he knows he'd lose both HKG and Taiwan. His only possibility concerning Taiwan would become invasion which would be explosive regionally and globally. PLA anyway remains unable to conduct an amphibious invasion of the island where forces are dug inside mountains and under rock against missile attacks.

    Xi is focused on the national election in Taiwan in January and he knows sending PLA into HKG will slay his sycophant KMT party in the Taiwan voting. As it is the pro independence Democratic Progressive Party remains well positioned to retain both the presidency of Tsai Ing-wen and the national assembly. DPP won control of the assembly in 2016 for the first time ever which is another statement of distrust toward Beijing. There's no question Trump and his China advisers support DPP.

    Xi knows the majority on Taiwan always hope for improved relations with Beijing and that Xi using the PAP of the PLA in HKG will kill any and all sentiment of that throughout the island population. Xi has already erred seriously by sending troops to the HKG border from the Eastern Military District which is directly across from Taiwan. Taiwanese see use of these troops as a menacing message to Taiwan and they are correct. This further weakens Xi's political allies on Taiwan in the coming national vote which Xi seems to miss completely. Belief is also widespread throughout the region that commanders of the HKG Garrison, which is in the Southern Military District, strongly oppose committing their troops to the cramped urban jungle HKG would be in any military intervention.

    Since the demonstrations in HKG immigration to Taiwan from HKG has increased 28% which emphasizes among other things the failure of the 1C2S which has always been a fraud to begin with. Singapore has suspended its student exchange program with HKG. With the HKG school year about to begin a widespread student boycott of attendance is being organized advocating democracy until Beijing meets the 5 demands. Students unions of both high schools and all 14 universities are organizing demonstrations rather than new student orientations -- new students are being invited to teach-ins. Xi's not going to be shooting high school students either despite the Party hotheads in Beijing. Time is Xi's enemy, not his friend.
