Trump Takes Credit For Troops Not 'Obliterating' Hong Kong

President Donald Trump said he is the reason China has not “obliterated” Hong Kong.

According to Politico, protesters have been marching against Beijing for months.

He said: “A million soldiers standing outside of Hong Kong aren’t going in only because I asked him.” Trump said sending troops in would have “a tremendous negative impact on the trade deal.” The president said he stands with protesters and the CHinese President Xi Jinping.
