U.S. Hong Kong response could include visa and economic sanctions - Stilwell

WASHINGTON - U.S. President Donald Trump has a long list of possible responses to China s plans to impose a national security law on Hong Kong, including visa and economic sanctions, the top U.S. diplomat for East Asia said on Wednesday. David Stilwell, the State Department s assistant secretary for the region, accused Beijing of using the coronavirus pandemic to accelerate a global political agenda, including on Hong Kong. In a briefing for journalists, Stilwell declined to detail the U.S. response, which he said was for Trump to decide, but said it would be targeted and aim to mitigate the impact on the Hong Kong people and U.S. businesses.
