China moving troops to Hong Kong border amid intensifying protests: Trump

China moving troops to Hong Kong border amid intensifying protests: Trump

Our top story this morning,… The protests in Hong Kong continue to intensify…
becoming increasingly chaotic by the day. After a temporary shutdown Monday due to a
massive rally over police aggression, flights resumed Tuesday morning at Hong Kong International
Airport,… only to stop again in the afternoon, as demonstrators flooded back into the airport. It’s still unclear whether flights will be
able to leave today. This comes as U.S. President Donald Trump
said China is “moving troops to the Hong Kong border” in what may be an attempt by Beijing
to crackdown on the rallies. We have our Choi Si-young on the line. Si-young, what’s the latest? Well, Conn-young. As you said, President Trump tweeted Tuesday
that U.S. intelligence agencies have informed him “that the Chinese government is moving
troops to the border with Hong Kong.” He went on to say that “everyone should be
calm and safe,” in a clear reference to concerns China may attempt to intervene. The UN human rights chief also denounced the
violence on Tuesday and called on Hong Kong to talk to its people. The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights,
Michelle Bachelet, called for a “prompt, independent, impartial investigation” into alleged excessive
force by police against the protesters. The EU has expressed similar thoughts. The spokesperson for the European External
Action Service, which is the EU’s diplomatic arm, urged all sides to refrain from violence
and calm down. The spokesperson highlighted the need for
all sides to come together for “talks.” So, aside from the international reaction
to the developments in Hong Kong, what’s the status on the rallies and the airport? Well Conn-young, all outbound flights from
Hong Kong International Airport were suspended as of 4:30 p.m., local time, Tuesday because
of the massive rally in the airport’s terminals. It’s still unclear whether any flights will
depart on Wednesday, but some reports say the scene at the airport is much calmer than
yesterday. So no luck flying out right now, but the airport
says incoming flights are running as normal. Small confrontations and scuffles between
the protesters and police occurred on Tuesday, with police spraying tear gas. More than 300 flights have been cancelled
so far since Monday. Back to you Conn-young.

  1. To hell we th Mitchell she is nothing but a joke China should do exactly what all western countries will do and have always done when they have their own protest which is bring military troops and kill people especially none Caucasian people

  2. Its china communism country who want to conquer the world, he want take over taiwan as we know is a free country since long ago, so how more about hk which so little island as his?

  3. I hope the Chinese Govt doesn't over react or there will be a mass exodus of people leaving Hong Kong which will be bad for the Hong Kong econmany which is also bad for the Chinese Govt

  4. Carrie Lam’s idea of maintaining order is KNOWINGLY not sending in the police in order to protect the peaceful protestors from her henchmen!
    How EXACTLY do you take a Democratic population and turn it into a Communist one? The only way to do it is take away everything they are used to doing. Will they retaliate? Do you have a teenager with a cell phone or IPad on an uncensored Internet? Try taking it away from them! I had a Chinese mother take her 14 year old daughters IPad away from her and the daughter stabbed the mother 7 times. To avoid prosecution, the family quickly left Canada and returned to Mainland China! Point being….if you take something away from someone that they are used to and comfortable with in their daily lives, they will retaliate, no doubt about it! China is learning this the hard way in Hong Kong and as a result should just let Taiwan slip away into a state of sovereign independence otherwise what’s happening in Hong Kong will seem like a schoolyard brawl compared to what will happen in Taiwan. Get over yourselves China! Nobody wants anything to do with you! I’m thinking your finally seeing that all your tyrannical dealings both inside and outside of China are turning the worlds populations against you!

  5. China can deal with its Own! I am an American and it is Not the job of my people or my government to get involved in the affairs of a Sovereign Foreign Nation!

  6. Hong Kong Police, it is high time to shoot them for self-defense. These people are lawless terrorists. If there are not interested and care about the safety of the police who are carrying out their duty, then why should you police care about them that started all these nonsense?
    If it is still under the British they would all be dead now. Do you know how the British take care of peaceful protesters??? Have you heard of Amritsar massacre???
    On April 13, 1919, British troops fired without warning on a peaceful protest of thousands of unarmed Indians in Amritsar, Punjab, in what became alternately known as the Amritsar or the Jallianwala Bagh massacre. British troops killed hundreds of men, women and children.

  7. You should cover more of your own country news…what is happening between Japan and south Korea now???? more trade tit for tat????

  8. What is going Kong's problem way there calling British to help them surf there problem British also get there problem on there own way there surf show China can't call British to come and help them surf there problem because Hong Kong is a Chinese land the way me no and nothing way China don't have to roll there technology are there everything are also be there ooo and if in time of war if one country go to invade them inside there country them also get right to invade the country ooo am not proved law but that my own government I we practices if be a leather of China ooo because no body come this life who can't die all human be and leaving things must die what make person come this life normally he must die oo death is nothing oòooo

  9. Obviously the UN is up to no good. Hong Kong Police is the most restrained Police Force in the world to the extend they look like pussies – more so than any other country in the world from what we all can see – thanks to social media. So what is the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet talking about here? Stop practising double standards. The world did not see the UN commenting on police brutality and excessive use of force (which were worst than those force used by the Hong Kong Police by a far margin) when it was used in the US, UK and France to quell unrests.

  10. It’s been more than two months since 9th of June. Where are the fucking stupid PLA? Where are your dog dog dads? They are never be coming because thousands of corrupted CCP big guys vault their hundreds of billions USD in Hong Kong. They fucking scare of losing all of their money. If PLA came in, Hong Kong Stock market would got crashed, Real estate would got crashed, their money would got lost. You know nothing but a piece of shit. That’s why you mainlanders are pigs. Only know eating and fucking. You have no thoughts and freedom.

  11. Their protests are not intense enough.
    We should give them our blacks.
    Looting, rioting and rapes will surely make their protests more noticeable.

  12. Why not just move four trucks with flame throwers safe guarded by fully armed military personnel. No protestors will dare to get near or they will become roasted pigs.

  13. There is no border within one country. HongKong is China region. Trump at it again speaking without brain process. Trump is a dotard.

  14. I'm not well educated on the history of China and Hong Kong as a whole but when I visited HK last september I could feel the "we are not chinese" attitude in Hong Kong. I was at a bakery near Tsuen Wan I asked the lady what something that the locals have here in China for breakfast, she said to me this is not China it is Hong Kong. That's just one example of my 2 week stay there, so I kinda see where the other side is coming from too…

  15. CỘNG SẢN china VÔ LƯƠNG tàn độc mỗ cắp NỘI TẠNG người dân TRUNG QUỐC ác hơn loài QUỶ DỮ phải CHẾT để dân lành Hongkong+ Trung Quốc sống hạnh phúc ấm no muôn đời ok.

  16. Funny english.
    China looks terrible right now. Stop buying chinese crap, the world supports hong kong and the country of taiwan.


  18. I wonder what would happen if riots break out in an US airport? and imagine China steps in and try to solve the problem for US…..

  19. It is common sense that an effective way to deter bad behavior is punishment. In Hong Kong, we now have a situation that most of the violence offenders will be released soon after they are arrested. Why? Most Hong Kong judges are on rioters’ side because most of them are British-trained or with British citizenship. See WHO are on the Hong Kong Court of Final Appeal! No wonder, the riot party in Hong Kong keeps rolling!

  20. so stupid reporting. There is already over 10,000 troops station inside Hong Kong at various garrisons around Hong Kong. There is no need to bring in any extra

  21. Lets put a trade embargo on china why do we even trade with commies in the first place FREE HONG KONG🇺🇸

  22. I've seen it in US, Los Angeles, 1992… a series of riots and civil disturbances like Hong Kong today. 2,000 California Army National Guardsmen patrolled the city to restore order. As to the Casualties, Death(s) 63, Injuries 2,383 and Arrested 12,111.

  23. The entire world should attack on chinese communist party…should kill them all. What UN doing? Motherfucker have no guts to act against china.They can only threat week countries…shamelesss UN.

  24. In China a person can be arrested, tried, go through the appeals process and be executed in 4 hours. The Chinese Communist have no problem with killing everyone in Hong Kong.

  25. What's the point of these troops? Waste of time. Take a few auto-rifles, blast these rioting cockroaches into pink mist, just get these over with.

  26. Stupid report from the "American As* Licker "WHY YOU SAID POLICE AGRESION. Idiot.Do U know the meaning.In other countries the police will act tougher including America or our SEA neighbouring countries police will not act soft to take "Law & Order".

  27. China WILL Repeat WILL – "Shed Blood In Days To Come, Regarding Hong Kong"..!

    They Mean To Cause Dissent In America – In Hopes Of ANY President In The Future, Other Than TRUMP..!



  28. HK people fight for your freedom, fight the communist pigs for your rights, fight the dirty cops. Red china using its army against its so call own " people" ? who does that? china is the real terrorist. You gonna kill your own people to get that land,? HK people fight them.

  29. the u.s. must mind thier own business and stay away from hong kong and the same with the rest, valenzuela, iran, syria, afghanistan.

  30. May I ask Mr. Trump on behalf of my work mate
    How much do you know about China?
    Do you think the chairman Mr. Xi of China have a good communication with protesters?
    Would you like show protester the best way ask autocratic dictatorial regime of communism without use HK police's force of any violently sit down discussing with you about democracy freedoms human rights or keep the promises one country two systems in HK citizen

  31. China occupied hongkong, tibet, taiwan, china killed Uighur muslim. Why world is Silent i don't understand.
