American President Donald Trump: China Moves Troops to Hong Kong. The Chinese government is moving troops towards the Hong Kong border.
The American president Donald Trump announced that on Twitter. Trump says to rely on American intelligence.
It is unclear whether the president is referring to new movements of troops or earlier army exercises that China held in response to protests in the city-state.
The American leader further calls on both parties to remain calm. He also hopes that this “difficult situation” in which China and Hong Kong find themselves will benefit “freedom.”
“I hope it will succeed peacefully. I hope nobody gets hurt. I hope nobody gets killed.”
