US Futures Can Leap with HK Human Rights

The US-China trade war pushed down several US futures yesterday, including S&P 500’s worst quarterly performance in almost three years. Reports signaled the newly approved American human rights bill would turn the tables.

The Whitehouse approved Hong Kong Human Rights Democracy Act earlier today. The Act barred teargas exports and allowed peaceful protesters to obtain US visas.

American House speaker Nancy Pelosi said Washington shouldn’t keep silent because of commercial interests. Otherwise, the US would lose its moral authority worldwide.

Beijing considers the bill as an attempt to interfere in China’s internal affairs. A Hong Kong spokesman said the approval was a political ploy to “contain China’s development.”

The Hong Kong government warned the US it would take countermeasures to stop this Act from taking place.
