  1. The "HK human right and democracy act" is a US internal policy. China has no authority to regulate US policy to others, visa or citizenship approval in US, and who assets to freeze in US. If China dont like US policy, dont do business with US, dont come to US, dont invest into US.

    So the China government should establish an internal policy (also apply to themselves and their family members) : dont buy any US products (specifically I phone), give up all the US citizenship, ban anyone from china come to US, and send all their assets from US back to China.

    China is angry because most of the rich and China government officials and their family members are living in US and hiding their assets in US.

  2. HK people do as you like. Another 28 years it will be over. The rich will flee. The poor will stay… lol Stupidity has no bounds
