Previously, anti-government protesters in Hong Kong gathered around the US Consulate General with American flags and called on United States President Donald Trump to “protect them.”

Anti-government protests continue in Hong Kong for the 14th consecutive week. Authorities have already announced their decision to withdraw the extradition bill, which led to unrest.

In late August, the PRC government strongly protested the White House and some US congressmen for supporting detainees in Hong Kong. The Chancellery of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China in Hong Kong also accused the US of “criminal activity” in the territory of the Chinese region.
