Hong Kong protesters are thankful for President Donald Trump and the U.S. this Thanksgiving.
Protesters in Hong Kong held a celebratory, pro-US rally Thursday after President Donald Trump gave them what one prominent activist termed a “timely Thanksgiving present.” The president signed an act in support of the protest movement it was passed almost unanimously by both houses of Congress.

The bipartisan bills signed by the president impose sanctions on officials in Hong Kong and China that are responsible for human rights abuses. The bills also require an annual review of the special autonomous status the U.S. State Department grants to Hong Kong during trade considerations. The revocation of that status is a powerful tool to incentivize support of pro-democracy groups in Hong Kong. The legislation also bans the sale of crowd control munitions to Hong Kong that have been used by police against the protesters.
“I signed these bills out of respect for President Xi, China and the people of Hong Kong,” the president said in a statement after signing the bills. “They are being enacted in the hope that leaders and representatives of China and Hong Kong will be able to amicably settle their differences leading to long-term peace and prosperity for all.” More
These protestors have more respect and patriotism than the leftists in our own country. May God bless them! Perhaps we can make a switch. We take all the freedom-loving residents of Hong Kong, and the America-hating Americans can go live under the thumb of the socialist paradise of China.
