China today destroyed the United States for hindering their internal affairs after an American politician urged the rest of the world to confront Beijing as Hong Kong demonstrators.
The Republican Kentucky Senator, Mitch McConnell, said Tuesday: & # 39; China's trading partners, including the US, should make it clear that a crackdown (against Hong Kong) would have real and painful costs. & # 39;
He also wrote: & # 39; The world awakens to China's violent and aggressive practices … Every trade nation and democracy that values individual freedom and privacy has an interest here. & # 39;

Senate Majority Leader McConnell made the comments in an op-ed entitled & # 39; We Stand with Hong Kong & # 39 ;, published by Wall Street Journal.
The article said that Hong Kong protesters want their freedoms to be preserved, the autonomy of the area respected, and justice for those who have detained, brutal or murdered the security forces.
He claimed that the unrest in Hong Kong was caused by & # 39; Beijing's systematic shaking of his domestic oppression and his pursuit of hegemony abroad & # 39 ;.

Geng Shuang, a spokesperson for the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, mocked the & # 39; irresponsible & # 39; from Mr McConnell and said that he intended to create tensions between China and other countries with malicious intent & # 39 ;.
Mr. Geng urged Mr. McConnell to learn from Abraham Lincoln.
& # 39; Former US President, Lincoln said: & # 39; You can sometimes fool all people, and some people all the time, but you can't always fool all people. & # 39; I have given this quote from Lincoln to some people, hoping that they would listen to Lincoln's advice … & Mr. 39 said.
President Trump has also given his support to Hong Kong and China protesters that the US has found it & # 39; very difficult & # 39; to continue trade negotiations if violence is used to suppress the protests. President Trump and Chinese President Xi had a meeting about the trade war in June
The spokesperson also warned Mr. McConnell to stop challenging & # 39; the IQ of the people of the world & # 39; with his opinions.
Ik I must emphasize again, Hong Kong is Hong Kong in China and Hong Kong is a matter for China. The American side should not intervene, intervene or act as desired, & Mr Geng concluded.
This is not the first time that Mr McConnell's comments have been criticized by China.
In the tweet earlier this month, Mr. McConnell said: & # 39; The people in Hong Kong bravely challenged the Chinese Communist Party while Beijing tried to violate their autonomy and freedom. Any violent approach would be completely unacceptable. As I said on the senate floor: the world watches. & # 39;
His comments caused indignation in China.
Beijing accused him and the House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi of the & # 39; black hand & # 39; behind the Hong Kong protesters, of whom the Communist Party said they were no different than & # 39; terrorists & # 39 ;.
Beijing also criticizes the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, for its comments

& # 39; I urge Carrie Lam to meet with protest leaders to listen to and act on their legitimate grievances, including revoking extradition law, ending police violence and granting general voting rights.
& # 39; The people in Hong Kong are trying to keep the promise of One Country – Two Systems. If we do not stand up for human rights in China due to commercial interests, we lose all moral authority to speak out elsewhere. & # 39;
Ms. Clinton wrote on August 13: & # 39; May we all show solidarity with the people of Hong Kong as they speak for democracy, freedom of repression, and a world they want to see & # 39;

The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs has repeatedly urged Washington to interfere with its own affairs and to stay outside of Hong Kong.
Beijing has also banned two American warships to visit Hong Kong in the midst of rising political tensions.
President Trump has expressed his support to Hong Kong and China protesters that the US has found it & # 39; very difficult & # 39; to continue trade negotiations if violence is used to suppress the protests.
& # 39; I think it's very hard to go if they violate, I mean, if it's Tiananmen Square again, & # 39; Trump told reporters in New Jersey on Sunday. & # 39; I find it very difficult to do when there is violence. & # 39;

In response to Trump's comments, Beijing emphasized that Hong Kong affairs were part of China's domestic affairs.
Beijing said it hoped President Trump and his government could stick to his earlier remark.
President Trump said: & # 39; Because Hong Kong is a part of China. They have to arrange that themselves. They don't need advice. & # 39;
