The CNBC quoted the US President Donald Trump’s latest tweets to take it as a suggestion for a “personal meeting” with China’s Xi over Hong Kong crisis.

The tweet reads as:

I know President Xi of China very well. He is a great leader who very much has the respect of his people. He is also a good man in a “tough business.” I have ZERO doubt that if President Xi wants to quickly and humanely solve the Hong Kong problem, he can do it. Personal meeting?
