Hong Kong’s government on Saturday said it would not be cowed by Donald Trump’s threats to strip the territory of its special economic status following China’s bid to roll out a new national security law.

Hong Kong’s security secretary John Lee told local media that “the US won't win” by using threats against the regional government, adding authorities were doing the correct thing by supporting the new security law drawn up by Beijing. EFE-EPA
