5:09 pm
1000 deaths in the u.s. went through the $100000.00 mark the president used the occasion to cut ties with the world health organization and returned to calling it the would hand virus china has total control over the world health organization we have detailed the reforms that it must make and engage with them directly but they have refused to act the president has been angry about china's trade practices since before he took office the protests this week in hong kong o.b. zhang's decision to extend security powers there has added to that anger hong kong has had a special relationship with the u.s. but the president wants to punish china and says hong kong special status is no more my announcement today will affect the full range of agreements we have with hong kong from our extradition treaty to our export controls on dual use technologies and more with few exceptions we will be revising the state
5:10 pm
department's travel advisory for hong kong to reflect the increased danger of surveillance and punishment by the chinese state security apparatus president also announced he was imposing sanctions on chinese and hong kong officials but i think this is the amount of actions that he and house as well as the severity of actions that he did announce depending on the implementation of these actions this is probably an action that this is an initiation of. do you think china will react and respond i think china has to respond in this case there are so many actions that the trump emission and ounce today that if they don't respond then domestically the leadership risks looking weak to their domestic audience president trump gave a long list of grievances about china's economic actions there's nothing new there he's done it before what was interesting in his 10 minutes in front of the cameras

5:12 pm
is he going to be false agents or is it going to be limitations on the margin i think what we do know is that this is the end of an era where hong kong has really been seen as very much an independent global financial center and now it's going to be an international center part of china going to have its own seats on many of these international organizations so it will lose its identity just sitting state of the world along with removing the per french policies from hong kong the u.s. president says chinese companies operating in the united states could come under more scrutiny and there could be travel bans and sanctions against hong kong and chinese officials who are seen as a danger in the city's autonomy this is where beijing could head back to protest measures raising the already high tensions between the world's 2 biggest economies . now israeli forces have shot and killed a palestinian man who had special needs the police in occupied east jerusalem say
