Jon: China is making more…sending more overtures that it will crack down Hong Kong. What’s the message from the administration to the Chinese government about changing the special status of Hong Kong?

McEnany: Yeah, I know. Jen, you also emailed this question this morning, so I went directly to the President to get an answer on this, and he said to me that he’s displeased with China’s efforts, and that it’s hard to see how Hong Kong can remain a financial hub if China takes over. So, yes.
