Trump warns China to risk trade deal against Hong Kong crackdown

Trump warns China to risk trade deal against Hong Kong crackdown

Washington, Aug 19 (UNI) US President Donald Trump has warned China to risk trade deal, if it continued to use violence against the Hong Kong protesters.

"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 on Sunday. "I think it's a very hard thing to do if there's violence."

Trump's comments came as Washington and Beijing look to revive pivotal high-level talks aimed at ending their months long trade war.

Earlier this week, Trump had posted on social media that US intelligence believed Chinese forces were massing on the border with Hong Kong.

China's 1989 crackdown in Beijing's Tiananmen Square saw tanks sent in to end student-led protests, resulting in hundreds of deaths.

The weeks-long Hong Kong protests were sparked by the opposition to a plan to allow extraditions to the mainland China, but have since morphed into a wider call for democratic rights in the semi-autonomous city. Protesters have accused authorities of carrying out violent crackdown and arrests.
