On Friday’s Backchat, the latest situation in the US,China and Hong Kong.
China warned Washington not to "play with fire" on Wednesday as a US delegation wrapped up a historic trip to Taiwan. Meanwhile on Monday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said he is not optimistic that China will rethink its position on Hong Kong, particularly after the arrest of Jimmy Lai under Hong Kong's new national security law. Is the less than hard line on DQed legislators a sign that Beijing is holding back? Is the US stance on levies on HK goods significant? Are cold war comparisons appropriate?
