Global Times chief: Trump has no more trade ammo

Hu Xijin from the Global Times tweeted on Thursday that bilateral discussions between the United States and China "won't work" even if President Donald Trump would insist on bringing the protests in Hong Kong to the table. He claimed the administration in Washington has ran out of ways to force its hand. Trump hasn't dragged in the issues affecting the autonomous territory, said the editor-in-chief of the newspaper affiliated with the Communist Party of China and an insider who has been carrying information from anonymous decision makers.

"Trade war has dragged on to now, the US has no more economic levers to pressure China. If Beijing determines to intervene, it won't worry about US sanctioning Hong Kong," he wrote.
