Trump will 'revoke Hong Kong's preferential treatment'

Trump made the announcement at a White House news conference, saying China had broken its word over Hong Kong's autonomy.

He said its move against Hong Kong was a tragedy for the people of Hong Kong, China and the world.

"We will take action to revoke Hong Kong's preferential treatment," he said, adding that the United States would also impose sanctions on individuals seen as responsible for smothering Hong Kong's autonomy.
