Here is what you need to know on Friday, November 22: Trade: The main headline of the day came from the South China Morning Post, in an article entitled, “China watching Donald Trump’s response to US Hong Kong bill as it threatens to become new barrier to trade deal,” and bullet points as follows: One source says Beijing may decide to ‘fight and talk alternatively’ and is now closely monitoring the US president’s next move following the vote by Congress China reacted angrily to the proposals, accusing Washington of interfering in its internal affairs, and may feel obliged to respond. The article was stating that China will not make a deal with the US if Trump signs the Hong Kong bill into law. However, on the flip side, the article also said that the US may be willing to delay the 15 December tariffs if an agreement is not reached by then.
