Here's the most important part of @realDonaldTrump speech on #HongKong and #China:

"China claims it is protecting national security. But the truth is Hong Kong was secrure and prosperous as a free society. Beijing decision reverses all of that.
It extends the reach of Chinas invasive state secutiry apparatus into what was formerly a bastion of liberty. Chinas latest incursion along with other recent developments that degraded the territories freedoms makes clear that HK is no longer sufficiently autonomous to warrant...
the special freedoms that we have afforded the territory since the handover. China has replaced its promised formula of 1C2S to 1C1S. Therefore I am directing my administration to begin the process of eliminating policy exemptions that give HK different and special treatments.
My announcment today will affect the full range of agreements we have with HK from our:
Extradition treaty
to our export controls on dual use technologies and more with few exceptions.
We will be revising the state departements travel advisory for HK to reflect the increased ...
danger of surveillance and punishment by the Chinese state security apparatus. We will take action to revoke HKs preferential treatment as a seperate customs and travel territory from the rest of China. The US will also take necessary steps to sanction PRC and HK officials ...
directly or indirectly involved in eroding HK's autonomy and -just if you take a look- smothering, absolutely smothering HKs freedom. Our actions will be strong, our actions will be meaningful.
More than 2 decades age on a rainy night in 1997, British soldiers lowered ...
the union flag and Chinese soldiers raised the Chinese flag in HK. The people of HK felt simultaneously proud of their Chinese heritage and their unique HK identity. The people of HK hoped that in the years and decades to come, China would increasingly come to resemble its ...
most radiant and dynamic city. The rest of the world was electrified by a sense of optimism that HK was a glimpse into China's future, not that HK would grow into a reflection of China's past. #HongKongNeedsHelp #FreeHongKong #HongKongProtests #HongKongIndependence
