Hong Kong protests

Protests spark questions over Hong Kong’s ‘special status’ in US

Trump says he is sure China and territory can ‘work it out’

HONG KONG/WASHINGTON -- U.S. President Donald Trump expressed optimism that the situation in Hong Kong can be "worked out," but lawmakers in Washington have called for a reassessment of Hong Kong’s special status as China extends its influence over the territory.

"I hope it all works out for China and for Hong Kong," Trump told reporters Wednesday at the White House. "I understand the reason for the demonstration but I'm sure they will be able to work it out. I hope they're going to be able to work it out with China."
