I had some sympathy with Hong Kong protesters, but now their leader has called for Trump to include human rights in trade negotiations........pretty sure they are delusional.
The days of looking to America to defend or set the example for human rights are long gone.
The Hong Kong protesters will never win. They are doomed and have been so since the British gave back the land to China without allowing those people, born and raised under British rules, a vote in the move. Sorry Britts, but this is your doing, and your cross to bear.
Remember China has a list of land (and water) that they intend to acquire and keep. Look at their passports. Included in, but not full list: Taiwan; South China Sea; part of India; part of Vietnam.
Hong Kong won't ever be free - remember Tibet.
