"This week, China has unilaterally imposed its control on the security of hong Kong, in flagrant violation of its obligations as provided for by the treaty signed with the United Kingdom," said the american president. China has replaced its promise of"one country, two systems", by "one country, one system," added Trump. "This is why I direct my government to put an end to the provisions which guarantee to the hong Kong special treatment, since our extradition treaty up to the controls of exports of dual-employment, exemptions, and customs traveller processing".
He also announced sanctions against chinese officials and hong Kong who have directly or indirectly contributed to the reduction of the autonomy of hong Kong and stifle his freedoms". If the tightening of chinese control over hong Kong was the pretext of this series of sanctions, Trump has more usually blamed the general behavior of China. Echoing themes frequently evoked in recent weeks, the us president has accused Beijing of engaging in the"espionage systematic" companies and laboratories in the united states, having "illegally claimed territories in the Pacific", and especially to have allowed the spread of the coronavirus in the world."espionage Activities illegal to steal our secrets"

"The world now suffers from the malice of the chinese government. The secret kept around the virus of the waning moon allowed the disease to spread worldwide, triggering a global pandemic, which has cost over 100,000 american lives, and more than a million in the world."see also : Steve Bannon: "The chinese threat will be the key topic of the presidential election of 2020"
After last month announced the suspension of the participation of the Member-States of the WHO, requesting that the organization reform, Trump has this time decided to put an end, purely and simply to the american participation in the organization. The president has also announced restrictions of entry on the territory of the united states, aimed at students and researchers of chinese suspected of spying. "For years, China has engaged in espionage activities illegal to steal our secrets. Today I'm going to take measures to protect our university's most important, and to suspend the entry of certain chinese nationals that we have identified as a potential risk to security", he said.
