Trump will be known as president that lost HK - Schumer

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (pictured) said US President Donald Trump will be remembered as the head of state during a time when the country "lost" Hong Kong.

"Overnight, the Chinese Communist Party dealt another blow to those in Hong Kong fighting for their voices to be heard," Schumer said, adding: "President Trump will forever be known as the President that lost Hong Kong."

Previously, China's National People's Congress (NPC) passed a law, drafted by Beijing for Hong Kong, which would override the local government whilst dealing with actions in the city that could harm the country's national security.
