(Tea Party PAC) – President Donald Trump has floated the idea around that he would be interested in holding a personal meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping in order to talk about finding a peaceful solution to ending the protests happening in Hong Kong.
Video footage of Hong Kong protesters went viral this week after it was seen that some of those in attendance were waving American flags and singing our national anthem. Here, in this country, our protesters burn the flag and slander the nation that gives them freedom, while over there, in a horrific Communist regime, those folks protest by waving our flag proudly.
Anyone propose a trade?
“I know President Xi of China very well. He is a great leader who very much has the respect of his people,” Trump said, flattering the Chinese leader on Twitter. “He is also a good man in a ‘tough business.’”
Trump said that President Xi could easily solve the problem “quickly and humanely” without violence as Chinese forces gather at the Hong Kong border.
“I have ZERO doubt that if President Xi wants to quickly and humanely solve the Hong Kong problem, he can do it,” Trump wrote. “Personal meeting?”
Protests have been ongoing in Hong Kong since June but have heated up in recent days after the protesters occupied the airport,shutting down travel for two days.
Several lawmakers have condemned the violence against the protesters, earning a sharp rebuke from China.
“They have disregarded the facts, turned what’s black into white, and characterized violent crimes as a beautiful fight for human rights and freedom,” China’s foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said in a statement.

We live in a nation where we have the kind of freedom we have is craved by folks living in many horribly oppressive governments who would kill for the equality we provide for our own citizens.
Here there is liberty to do what you please, to make opportunities to better your own life and live happily, minding your own business. This is something we take for granted on a near daily basis.
What’s worse is that many of our own people eschew this lifestyle that so many others would kill to have. Let’s hope we all learn to have a little humility and appreciate the blessings of freedom we enjoy.
These individuals in Hong Kong are a good reminder of the things we have that we often don’t cherish the same way we should. It’s embarrassing to see ingrates like Antifa on the news so often and to think these spoiled brats give the rest of the world a representation of what they must think most of us are like.
Rest assured, folks. We’re not all self-entitled, whiny, temper-tantrum throwing children.
